Patient–Empowered Precision Medicine: Glasgow’s USP

Kelvin Gallery, University of Glasgow, 6pm, Thursday 9 July 2015

This year’s speaker is Professor Anna Dominiczak, Regius Chair of Medicine and Vice-Principal and Head of the College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences. Her talk entitled ‘Patient-Empowered Precision Medicine: Glasgow’s USP’ will focus on Glasgow’s unique position in the field of stratified medicine.

Patient–Empowered Precision Medicine: Glasgow’s USP

The future of healthcare is about getting the right treatment to the right patients at the right time through stratified or precision medicine. Stratified or precision medicine involves examining the genetic makeup of patients in their differing responses to drugs designed to treat diseases such as cancer, heart disease or arthritis. By building up an understanding of the “strata” of responses we will create more personalised and effective forms of treatment for groups of patients most likely to benefit.

We have developed a strategic partnership between academia, NHS and industry to transform management of chronic diseases globally by accelerating biomedical research, high-quality health care provision and economic growth. The unique combination of electronic health records, new advances in DNA sequencing, as well as volunteering by Glasgow patients places Glasgow on the world-wide cutting edge.
