Is the time right for a move from genetic testing and biobanking at specific time-points to continuous, real-time monitoring of individuals?

Professor Bartha Knoppers, Director of the Centre of Genomics and Policy at McGill University, will explore how this ‘measured man’ approach might affect health systems planning and research, and how it could yield vital new information for personalised healthcare.

Hosted by health policy think-tank the PHG Foundation, in partnership with Cambridge University Health Partners and Hughes Hall, the second series of the Life Sciences & Society Seminars will appeal to those interested in the promises - and potential pitfalls - of personalised healthcare.

Join us as we highlight the key areas where science and technology could transform disease prevention and care, examine barriers to implementation, and explore the policy implications of biomedical and digital innovations for health.

The seminar is free, but registration is required. Previous seminars have been popular, so make sure of your place by registering here.
