In an era of personalization -- where music apps filter songs based on listener preferences and online ads populated based on user search history -- healthcare is the next frontier.

Scientific advances are transforming healthcare and ushering in a new era of personalized – or precision – medicine. This approach makes it possible to account for each patient’s genetics, health history and lifestyle as researchers develop and doctors prescribe individualized treatments.

Such data-driven medicine has far-reaching policy implications, from regulations to delivery systems.

On October 22nd, join The Hill for a discussion on the impact of this emerging field, the challenges to its progress, and how the Precision Medicine Initiative fits into the complex personalized medicine ecosystem.

Speakers include:

Kathy Hudson, Ph.D.
Deputy Director for Science, Outreach and Policy
National Institutes of Health [NIH]

Elizabeth Mansfield, Ph.D.
Director of Personalized Medicine in the Office of In Vitro Diagnostics Device Evaluation & Safety, Center for Devices and Radiological Health
Food & Drug Administration [FDA]
