Science and Society Seminar by Jonathan Knowles

My genes, my cancer, my therapy - personalised medicine is a rapidly developing field, and it is a dream-come-true within our grasp: Molecular and genetic profiles of individual patients enable better prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Yet, what are the drawbacks, dangers, or ethical implications? Will only some fortunate ones be able to afford personalised medicine? And who will pocket the profit?

The Dresden Forum on Science and Society is happy to announce the next Science and Society Seminar.

Jonathan Knowles: "The Molecular Personalisation of Science and Medicine - Current Status and future prospects".


The seminar takes place on June 15, 2011, at 16:00 in the MPI-CBG Auditorium.
Everybody is very welcome - We would be delighted if you joined us for this event!


Jonathan Knowles is Finnish Distinguished Professor at the Institute for Molecular Medicine (FIMM), University of Helsinki, Finland, Professor of Translational Medicine at the EPFL, Switzerland, Vice Chairman of Caris Life Sciences, Dallas, USA, and former President of Group Research at Hoffmann-La Roche.
