Data-Driven Precision Medicine and Diagnostics Research Area Symposium

December 12 @ 10:00 18:30 UTC

Welcome to the first in-person symposium in data-driven precision medicine and diagnostics (PMD) research area. Listen to the Data Driven Life Science (DDLS) fellows recruited in this research area and expand your network with international and national colleagues.

The data-driven precision medicine and diagnostics symposium on December 12, 2022, is the first in-person symposium in the research area of precision medicine and diagnostics of the DDLS program. This meeting brings together the community in precision medicine and diagnostics and researchers who implemented artificial intelligence and machine learning applications in their research in PMD to improve human health and diagnostics, introduces newly appointed DDLS fellows in the PMD research area, and provides opportunities for networking across the research community and the SciLifeLab infrastructures. We are excited to host three international keynote speakers and welcome the community to join us. Hopefully, this event will inspire you on the potentials of data-driven precision medicine and diagnostics in Sweden.

Target group: We welcome all researchers interested in the DDLS program and data-driven precision medicine and diagnostics.

Venue: Sune Bergström Aula, BioClinicum, New Karolinska University Hospital, Solnavägen 30, Stockholm

Organizer: SciLifeLab, host of SciLifeLab & Wallenberg National Program for Data-Driven Life Science.

Deadline for registration extended to December 12th 9 am (earlier 2nd of December).
