EHA and SfPM are proud to announce the EHA-SfPM Precision Medicine Meeting: Bridging between functional and genomic precision medicine. This jointly organized meeting is the first to unite both genomic and functional precision medicine, with the aim to deliver key information for researchers to investigate how to better deliver the promise of precision medicine to cancer patients.

EHA Topics-in-Focus Precision Hematology

This meeting is part of the EHA Topics-in-Focus (TIF) program on Precision Hematology, for which the goal is to develop and optimize a European regulatory framework for precision hematology, with a focus on diagnostics and clinical research in malignant hematology, please see our website.

 

Target audience

Hematologists, internists, oncologists, pediatricians, biomedical scientists, lab specialists/technicians and patient advocates with a particular interest in precision medicine for AML (Biology & Clinical), Cytogenetics and molecular diagnostics, Drug resistance and pharmacology, Health economics, Novel therapeutics, targeted therapies and gene therapy, and Signalling, transcription and apoptosis.,

Program

The preliminary program is available on the program page

The topics that will be covered are:

  • Precision medicine clinical trials
  • Next generation approaches to precision medicine
  • Identification of combination therapies
  • Precision medicine in the context of rare and ultra-rare tumors
  • Computational approaches to precision medicine
  • Novel technologies in precision medicine
  • Visibility, education, and access to precision medicine technology
  • Shipping, storage and quality control of patient samples

Learning goals

After attending the meeting, the attendees will:

  • understand what functional precision medicine is and how it is distinct from -omic precision medicine approaches.
  • be familiar with the many technologies being currently employed in functional precision medicine.
  • understand how functional and genomic precision medicine technologies can be combined to improve matching of cancer patients to the therapies that will benefit them.
  • understand the challenges that remain in the everyday employment of functional precision medicine efforts in clinical oncology.
  • understand how challenges overcome by the genomic precision medicine field can be learning tools for the functional precision medicine field.
