Modern-day medicine is steadily making the transition towards precision medicine.
At the center of this new healthcare approach is the individual patient – and all the genetic, molecular, physiological, environmental and lifestyle factors that define him/her. Based on a more holistic view of the patient, tailored ways to treat and prevent (genetic and chronic) diseases are persecuted.
Yet, advances in precision medicine can only be enabled by large-scale collection of data about populations, providing a plethora of quantitative and qualitative data.
A second lever to push the boundaries of precision medicine is state-of-the-art nanoelectronics and digital tech solutions.
Imec Technology Forum Health presents insights on the rapidly evolving R&D and innovations in these key domains, putting a focus on silicon chip-based biosensors, DNA sequencing technologies, wearables, IoT, smartphones, computation and machine learning…
In short, all essential ingredients to address current challenges and seize opportunities to ultimately bring precision medicine to the daily health practice.
