Explore the future of Swedish & Danish Life Science and learn about the latest in precision medicine and big data at the annual Sweden-Denmark Linkage event in Lund’s Medicon Village.
In the past 10 years personalized medicine, now precision medicine, has been a highly attractive concept to many stakeholders in the life science industry. The Danish Government and Danish Regions have developed a National Strategy for Personalized Medicine 2017-2020. This is hardly surprising. Giving the patients the information and ability to find out exactly which drugs work for them, is just one of the supposed advantages. But looking past the hype, when will the promised benefits of these procedures become reality? And how will the payment systems, the industry and the health sector, as well as the individual doctor, follow this trend?
In addition to this, the industry must address the looming challenge of “Big Data”. Every day, biobanks, as well as new progress in genetics and molecular biology, create huge amounts of raw data. But do we have the tools needed to make use of it, and in the longer perspective, turn it into an additional revenue stream?
The conference will furthermore investigate how the Nordic countries can improve their collaboration in these areas, both at home and across borders.
