Genomic Medicine and Population Health
December 9 - 11, 2019 / Cairo, Egypt
The Increasing Role of Genomic Medicine in Population Health
The global burden of diseases in populations show profound inequities between high and low income countries. This can be reduced by generating knowledge on population-specific risk factors, comorbidities and genomics.
Advancements in genomic medicine will allow more precise diagnosis with potential applications in prevention and treatment therapies.
Appropriate, effective and economical integration of genomics into healthcare requires a multi-dimensional approach.
The GE-GPx Network is supported by the German Academic Exchange service (DAAD) and funded by the Federal Foreign Office (AA) to bring together a multidisciplinary group of world-class Egyptian and German experts from various research fields/disciplines. This collaborative core aims to establish multidisciplinary research and education platforms for healthcare professionals, young academics and students in order to develop tools and resources for translational research and personalized medicine.
