Personal data and personalised medicine

10th March 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Life Sciences & Society Seminars: Debating issues that matter for public policy in health and the life sciences.  New for 2015 is this series of free events taking a broad perspective on issues surrounding bioscience and health that are relevant to policy.  Topics will be wide ranging across science, medicine and the humanities, and will be of value to academic, commercial and clinical researchers and practitioners who are interested in how research in life sciences is adopted in practice for the health and wealth of the nation.  Meetings are open to all and will combine expert insight with lively discussion and networking opportunities.

Join us for the third seminar in the series entitled ‘Personal data and personalised medicine’ on 10 March at Hughes Hall.  Dr Jeff Skopek, Cambridge’s new Lecturer in Medical Law, Ethics and Policy, will explore some of the challenges for our law and ethics posed by developments in personalised medicine and big data.
Programme:

1730 – 1745 Registration
1745 – 1930 Talk and discussion in the Pavilion Room, followed by drinks
The seminar and refreshments are free, but is open to registered participants only. Register here to secure your place.  Please note that there is no parking at Hughes Hall.
