Personalised medicine is at the core of the EU Beating Cancer Plan, and is a theme which cuts across many of the flagship initiatives it proposes to introduce. Despite these encouraging goals and promising initiatives, there is little information in the public domain about how the proposed initiatives are being developed and whether implementation will reflect lessons learnt from existing work across the region.
This meeting in Brussels and online will outline how the impact of CGI-Clinics will address known policy and service delivery barriers that prevent greater access to personalised medicine for cancer in Europe. Topics include ‘CGI-Clinics: Data-driven cancer genome interpretation for personalised cancer treatment‘ an overview on how the project addresses unmet needs in personalized oncology, ‘Towards implementing personalised oncology at the national level: the current policy status‘ delivered by a representative from the European Commission, and a diverse multistakeholder panel discussion between medical oncologists, patient associations and policy-makers in Europe, ‘Towards a new era of personalised oncology at the EU level‘.
The event takes place on 21 March 2023 between 14:00 – 15:00 CET, and free attendance will be available both in person and virtually. Complete the online registration form by the end of Wednesday 15 March to secure your space.
