DKK 50 to hear two professors talk about personalised medicine


Personalised medicine and the universities handling of health data in connection with the development of personalised medicine have been a hot topic in the media, at the universities and in political discussions during the last few years. The establishment of the National Genome Centre and the new Danish Act on Processing of Personal Data, which will have significance for the collection and storage of Danish genetic data, have fired up under a debate about patient safety, rights and ethics. The Danish University Extension together with Health have updated the spring programme with lectures in both Aarhus and Emdrup on what the body's cells are specifically hiding and how the genome can contribute to more accurate diagnosis and targeted treatments. The two professors – Anders Børglum from the Department of Biomedicine and Niels Jessen from the Department of Clinical Pharmacology – will explain to the audience how the university collects and handles health data, which treatments can be improved, and how a patient experiences personalised medicine on their own body. 

The lecture will be held twice. In Emdrup on 30 April: in Emdrup on 30 April and in Aarhus on 1 May

Attendance costs DKK 50 and you can register via the website.
