Precision Medicine & Society: New Perspectives

May 7, 2021
10:45 AM - 3:00 PM

Event Description:

This year, the conference will showcase the next generation of scholars working on Precision Medicine and Society issues. The ensuing discussion should help bring broader recognition to the work of the younger participants, while also linking them to an inspiring model represented by the senior scholar.

The two themes were selected to capture exciting cutting-edge research that is being conducted by emerging scholars and that is pertinent to the key concerns of Precision Medicine and Society. One set of issues relates to the promise of Machine Learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) to provide more precise predictive models capable of improving, individualizing and perhaps even equalizing medical diagnosis, treatment and care. Another set of issues relates to the ethical questions raised by genomics research, from the inclusion of underserved populations among research cohorts, to the problems encountered when extending precision medicine methods to the fields of psychiatry and socio-genomics.
