The concepts of individualized medicine and custom-made therapies for each patient hold untapped potential with a view to the diagnostic workup and treatment of infections.
This year's Herrenhausen Symposium, Individualized Infection Medicine - The Future is Now, aims at fostering international and interdisciplinary collaboration by bringing together outstanding experts from different fields to address major scientific questions, tackle ethical, social and economic considerations and discuss the requirements for regulation processes in individualized medicine. The exchange of ideas and resulting discussions will help to guide the path forward for individualized medicine as a whole and individualized infection medicine in particular.
The discussion offers an interesting opportunity for scientists of various fields to bring in their perspective and at the same time gain fascinating new perspectives themselves. The conference, chaired by Prof. Dr Michael P. Manns, is jointly organized by the Hannover Medical School, the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research, the Centre for Individualized Infection Medicine and the Volkswagen Foundation.
The conference language is English.
Confirmed speakers include PMC President Edward Abrahams.
