Medicine For Me Versus Medicine For We, The Background To Personalised Medicine - A Lecture by Dr Sarah Atkinson


Brought to you online through Zoom

This event is 'Pay What You Can'. Please give what you feel would be an appropriate price for this show. We recommend £5 per ticket.   

In recent years, personalised medicine has been a growing area of research, with promising individualised treatments for a whole range of diseases including cancer. This has involved the study of genes and changes in the DNA. By understanding our genetic information, we have the potential to transform the NHS and revolutionise patient treatment. In this short talk, Sarah Atkinson will consider the benefits and risks of DNA testing technology and if applying this technology will improve outcomes. We will look at whether ‘personalised’ is automatically better in the case of medicine or if medicine should be more about ‘we’.

 

This event is part of the Ulster University Healthy Ageing programme for the NI Science Festival.
