Personalising healthcare: Focusing on citizens' health
Personalised medicine is one of the main health research priorities of Horizon 2020, the European Union’s funding programme for research and innovation. Placing the citizen at the front and centre, it 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.
The video showcases recent success stories and highlight projects funded by the EU in this field, including the EC’s commitment in IHEC with the BLUEPRINT project.
Can an "orchestra" of scientists find the hidden music in your DNA?
ENCODE Program Officer Mike Pazin will shed light on how collaboration can help unlock more DNA secrets.
Decoding a Genomic Revolution
MIT Computational Biologist Manolis Kellis gives us a glimpse of the doctor’s office visit of the future, and uses his own genetic mutations to show us how a revolution in genomics is unlocking treatments that could transform medicine as we know it.
The hidden life of our genes
The 52’ documentary film « The hidden life of our genes », written and directed by Hervé Nisic, produced by Pierre-François Decouflé (Heliox Films) with the support of the 7th framework research programme of the European Union (The epigenome project), has won the best film award at the International Life Sciences Film Festival of Praha.
The film has been awarded by Mr Peter Bendl, Cezch minister of agriculture during a ceremony held at the University of Prague on October 17h, 2012.
This film presents the European research on epigenetics in a premonitory echo of the Nobel Price of biology 2012 recently awarded to Mr Shinya Yamanaka and Mr John B. Gurdon.
Epigenetics makes you unique
At TEDxOU, geneticist Courtney Griffins explores how epigenetics processes influence our genes, and uncovers how two people born with identical DNA and similar upbringings can turn out very different.
Epigenetics on NOVA ScienceNOW
In this edition of the acclaimed science tv series “NOVA scienceNOW” by PBS you will learn more about how environmental factors such as diets and lifestyles can change the expression of our genes.
