Personalised Neuroscience: from Molecules to Medicine


Centre for Personalised Medicine ׀ Personalised Medicine in Practice Series ׀ Tuesday 25 September 2018 

Mary Ogilvie Lecture Theatre (MOLT) ׀ St Anne’s College, Oxford


The Centre for Personalised Medicine is proud to host a symposium on personalised neuroscience with the very generous support of the Dr Stanley Ho Medical Development Foundation. The symposium will feature three internationally recognised leaders in the field. Professor Robert McLaren will describe gene correction in blindness, Professor Richard Gilbert will speak on personalised medicine and brain cancer and Professor Jeffrey Golden will discuss the integration of personalised medicine and neuropathology. The symposium will also feature short talks on induced pluripotential stem cells in brain disease modelling, how individual mutations can lead to neurological symptoms and the use of bioinformatics in patient stratification.
