ELSA Technical Workshop

Objective of the workshop: To exchange insights on key ethical, legal and social issues in personalised medicine (PM) research and implementation in Europe and in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) and identify recommendations for future bi-regional collaborations in the field of PM.

Target audience: The research and clinical care community that directly works with PM. This can be investigators, PhD students, project managers, clinicians and paramedical personnel. It can also include policy makers, representatives of ethics committees, funding bodies and other regulatory bodies who regulate PM research or policies on PM in the health systems.
