Seminar: "Precision Medicine or Privileged Medicine? Connecting Biomedical Research to Health Care Practice."

2018-12-17
C016, Lab 1

When developing a drug, biomarker, or treatment approach, how will it actually work in patients, and how will it change the decisions that are made during treatment? Doctors, patients, and other stake holders each have different concerns about the costs/benefits at each stage of a medical treatment, and these concerns are not always effectively met. We focus on these issues in a teaching setting at Brown University (USA) as a lot of the tools for translating research into healthcare are generally relevant to how we do collaborative research.
