The Future of Cancer Treatment – public event

Free public event

Thursday 22 February 2018, 6:30pm – 8pm (talks start 6.30pm, doors open 6pm)

Hadyn Ellis Building, Maindy Road, Cardiff University, CF24 4HQ

‘Personalised medicine’ is a way of providing treatments and healthcare tailored to individuals rather than using a ‘one-size fits all’ approach. Scientific advances, such as whole genome sequencing and wearable technologies give scientists and medics more data. This helps medical teams and patients make better decisions on which treatment might work best for them.

To celebrate the launch of the Welsh Government’s Genomics for Precision Medicine Strategy, our event will feature researchers, clinicians and patients talking about:

  • Personalised medicine and what it means to you
  • What ‘big data’ means and how we’ll use this information
  • How using this approach benefits cancer patients

Put your questions to our panel and hear from our line-up of expert speakers. There will be an opportunity to browse relevant information stands before the talks start.

This event is free to attend. Refreshments will be provided and there will be an opportunity to browse Information stands.
