The Personalised Medicine and Resource Allocation Conference is co-hosted by the Centre for Personalised Medicine, and the Health Economics Research Centre.

The conference will explore the challenges of implementing genomic medicine into widespread clinical practice. There will be a particular focus on the generation of economic evidence and the ethical issues that arise in the resource allocation decisions required to allow personalised medicine to be realised.

The day will bring together health and non-health economists, health policy makers, ethicists, philosophers, and public health experts.
