The Future of Cancer Treatment: Personalised medicine and how it is revolutionising patient care

Free public event

Thursday 19 October 2017, 6-9pm

Education Centre, Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham 

‘Personalised medicine’ is a way of providing treatments and healthcare tailored to individual patients, rather than using a ‘one-size fits all’ approach.  Scientific advances, such as whole genome sequencing and wearable technologies, give scientists and medics more data. This helps medical teams and patients make better decisions on which treatments might work best for them.

At our event, hear from researchers, clinicians and patients about:

  • Personalised medicine and what it means for you
  • What ‘big data’ means and how we’ll use this information
  • How using this approach benefits cancer patients

The event is chaired by Prof Dion Morton, with speakers including Prof Gary Middleton, Prof Georgios Gkoutos, Dr Trevor Cole and patient representative Janette Rawlinson, plus a lively debate and chance to put your questions to our expert panel.

For full event details and to register your place, please visit:

This free event will be of particular interest to cancer patients and their families, and the talks will be pitched for a ‘lay’ audience.
