World Precision Medicine Congress, London, May 2018


It is clear that no one will succeed in precision medicine alone. Partnerships and
collaborations will be key to advancing this promising sector.

So with that in mind, World Precision Medicine Congress 2018 will bring together
academia, industry and healthcare to discuss and debate key challenges and
opportunities within:

Rare diseases and Orphan drugs | Drug discovery and development | Companion Diagnostics | Cancer Genomics | Wearables and Digital Health | Genomic Medicine | Big data and Genomics | Healthcare Track

Industry and thought- leading topics bringing together the whole value chain

• Discover plans to innovate the implementation of precision medicine into clinical practice
• Hear the latest in diagnostics and biomarkers
• Understand how infrastructure and financing are industrialising precision medicine
• Conquer the challenges of big data and genomics
• Learn about the latest in precision oncology and rare diseases as well as other therapy areas

NEW FOR 2018

For the first time, an entire track will be dedicated to the topic of Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare.

In parallel to the strategic conference, an exhibition will gather 80+ companies and hundreds of visitors from pharma and biotech companies as well as academia.
