Precision Medicine: opportunities and challenges

The introduction of the next generation sequencing techniques to the clinical environment allows glimpsing the transition towards a new medical paradigm aimed to maintain the citizen wellbeing that is based in four pillars: prediction, prevention, personalization and participation (P4 Medicine). However, due to the inexistence of a P4 Medicine initiative at governmental level, our healthcare professionals and researchers finds numerous barriers that are not able to demolish.
The objective of this meeting is to know about pioneer initiatives in other countries that will give our healthcare authorities a landscape of the benefits that the new medical model would bring, not only for the citizen but also to guarantee the sustainability of the system.
