30 May – 1 June 2018: Nordic Conference on Personalized Medicine


This 3-day event in Nyborg focuses on both basic and clinical aspects of research on personalized medicine.

The program includes talks and workshops within pharmacogenetics, drug interactions, epigenetics and other factors causing variation in drug response among individuals. The event will also focus on methods available across participating researchers.

Keynote speakers and plenary sessions

Keynote speakers include Ewan Pearson from Dundee University on “Pharmacogenetics of glucose-lowering drugs”, and Alex Sparreboom from Ohio University on “The role of drug transporters in chemotherapy-induced toxicity”. There will be plenary sessions on Novel methods for assessing drug toxicity, with confirmed speakers Deanna Kroetz, UCSF, and Magnus Ingelman-Sundberg, Karolinska Institutet, as well as Pharmacoepigenetics and biomarkers with confirmed speakers Ingolf Cascorbi, University of Kiel, Pascale Fisel, Dr. Margarete Fischer-Bosch-Institute of Clinical Pharmacology Stuttgart, and Carmen Jerónimo, University of Porto.
