The Brussels-based European Alliance for Personalised Medicine (EAPM), sixth annual Presidency conference, which will take place under the auspices of the Bulgarian Presidency of the European Union March 28th 2018, entitled 'Personalised Medicine and the Big Data Challenge'.

This will take place in the Belgian capital, at the prestigious Bibliothèque Solvay, close to the Brussels seat of the European Parliament.

The mix of its members provides extensive scientific, clinical, caring and training expertise in personalised medicine and diagnostics, across patient groups, academia, health professionals and industry.

Relevant departments of the Commission have observer status, as does the EMA. This conference, albeit under the Big Data umbrella, will also have a focus on disease areas and see the following sessions among others:

  • Broad picture of profiling/genomics/personalised healthcare
  • More data to treat more diseases
