EC releases video clip: How cooperation paves the way for personalised medicineNovember 21, 2017
Personalised medicine is one of the main health research priorities of Horizon 2020, the European Union’s funding programme for research and innovation. A new video recently released by the European Commission sheds light on the EU’s approach to foster cooperation and innovation in this dynamic field, which affects the whole healthcare system: from health research to patient care. The clip also showcases success stories and highlight projects including BLUEPRINT, the EU’s epigenomics flagship initiative associated to IHEC.
Placing the citizen at the front and centre, personalized medicine looks at the individual's molecular profile, environment and lifestyle to decide what prevention, diagnostic and treatment strategy will work best. This approach, which integrates information from multiple sources, can make healthcare smarter, better and more cost-effective.
