HUBweek:The Power & Promise of Precision Medicine

October 7, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Precision medicine is the personalization of health care by incorporating genetics, environmental factors and patient history to develop more precise therapies for treatment. On October 7, participate in a spirited conversation about why precision medicine matters, who will have access to it, who’s going to pay for it, and how it may affect patient privacy. Join the conversation between Harvard Medical School faculty members George M. Church, PhD ’84, Robert Winthrop Professor of Genetics and founder of the Personal Genome Project, and Isaac S. Kohane, MD, PhD, chair of the Department of Biomedical Informatics and professor of pediatrics and health sciences and technology. Following the moderated discussion, Drs. Church and Kohane will take questions from the audience.
