One of the most important prerequisites of the successful implementation of pharmacogenomics into the clinic is the increase of the general public’s awareness over the benefits of pharmacogenomics in rationalizing drug use.
Recognizing this fact, the Golden Helix Foundation organizes in Patras, Greece the 3rd U-PGx Personalized Medicine Public Day. The theme of the meeting will be “Pharmacogenomics and Personalized Medicine” and will be organized at the Agora Argyri on September 26th, 2019 (09:00 – 14:00 and 17:00 – 20:00 p.m.) and is part of the dissemination and outreaching activities of the Ubiquitous Pharmacogenomics (U-PGx) project, funded by the European Commission (H2020-668353).
In particular, there will be three main events, as part of the 3rd Personalized Medicine Public Day:
- 1. 09:00 – 14:00: Practical demonstration of the 2MoBiL Portable Molecular Biology Laboratory and its role in Personalized Medicine education for school students,
- 17:00 – 20:00: Main event: Presentations and roundtable discussion of Personalized Medicine notions
- 20:00 – 22:00: Bioscience night: Interactive discussions on Personalized Medicine topics.
