Conference „Paving the way for personalized medicine – legal, ethical and social challenges“ will be held at the University of Salerno, School of Law, Italy on November 18th.

Personalized medicine promises to be at the forefront of governmental and scientific agendas for the foreseeable future. It is likely that pharmaceutical companies will continue to work toward developing precision medicine treatments and diagnostics, not just in Europe but worldwide. Addressing cross-cutting concerns, this conference aims at a better understanding of PM by explaining the various dimensions of the move towards personalized medicine.

The conference has a multidisciplinary approach. Audience of the conference are academics (wide range of disciplines such as medicine, law, economics, ethics, philosophy) and practicing (health) professionals, policy-makers and other interested persons from and outside Europe.

Keynote speaker of the conference is professor Leonard M. Fleck, from the Center for Ethics and Humanities in the Life Sciences, Michigan State University, USA. His interests focus on medical ethics, health care policy, priority-setting and rationing, and reproductive decision-making.

Academics, professionals, (PhD) students and other interested persons are invited to participate and submit an abstract for presentation, addressing personalized medicine or related issues.
