Dr John Chevers, Head of Business Development for PHG Foundation said, 'we are delighted to have AstraZeneca associated with the conference -not only as a a world leader in precision medicine, but now as a major player in our Cambridge scientific ecosystem.'

  • Parallel sessions looking at the practical implications of delivering scientific innovations to health professionals and patients and a discussion of whether technology complements or contradicts the ‘personal’ in personalised healthcare
