Personalized Medicine Meeting: from Discovery Science to the Patient

Personalized medicine has rapidly evolved, especially with recent developments in the fields of “omics” and their associated technologies.


Join us in the first International Zewail City meeting on Personalized Medicine, brought to you by the Center for Genomics at Zewail City. We will be hosting high-profile distinguished scientists from Egypt, Germany, and the UK among others. The meeting will explore various aspects of personalized medicine from discovery science, drug development, pre-clinical studies and all the way to patient care.


Early-career researchers will have the opportunity to submit abstracts for consideration for oral presentations and will compete for the Best Presentation Award. It is a great opportunity for sharing your research findings with the scientific community, promoting knowledge exchange and networking.
