Personalized Medicine Conference | PCPGM
November 28-29, 2012 Harvard Medical School, Boston, MAThe past few years have witnessed a revolution in the understanding of health and disease, brought on in large part by the sequencing of the human genome and the creation of a map of human genetic variation. Personalized medicine is the translation of this knowledge to patient care by using genetic and genomic information in diagnosis, prognosis and treatment. The goal of personalized medicine is to provide the right diagnosis and treatment to the right patient at the right time at the right cost. Already there are abundant examples that personalized medicine is poised to transform healthcare by offering the possibility of improved health outcomes and the potential to make healthcare more cost-effective.
