Personalised medicine allows us to go beyond the treatment of the symptoms of diseases to understand their causes. This knowledge can offer new insights on how to manage the diseases and allows potential therapeutic targets for the development or repurposing of new therapies. This can be done by going back from gene identification to biomedical research.
The session will set out latest developments in the area and give a multi-stakeholder perspective on how this can be integrated into healthcare systems through the following themes:
- Rare Diseases Model and Mechanism Network
- Drug repurposing efforts
