Event overview

Advances in genomics, data informatics and artificial intelligence have enormous potential to improve patient outcomes, disease prevention and management.

At this event we explore the future of precision medicine, how it can transform healthcare, and the opportunities for Australia to be a world-leader in this new frontier. We ask:

  • Is our health system ready?
  • What strategic investment in research infrastructure is needed for Australia to compete on the global stage? and;
  • What are the emerging business models in precision medicine?

Join CEDA for insights into the future of healthcare.
