Description

Improving the Focus of Precision Medicine: The Role of Health Technology Assessment (HTA)


To complement the University of Glasgow’s focus on precision medicine, exemplified by the partnership within the Stratified Medicine Scotland Innovation Centre (a £20m collaboration between academia, industry and the NHS), the Health Economics and Health Technology Assessment (HEHTA) Group is introducing a new research theme entitled “Economics of Precision Medicine”.

To mark the introduction of this new theme, HEHTA is hosting an afternoon workshop, Improving the focus of Precision Medicine: the role of Health Technology Assessment (HTA), on 20th January 2017. The workshop will comprise a series of talks given by invited speakers. These will consider issues related to the successful development of precision medicine technologies and the potential role of HTA analysis and thinking in the selection of candidate technologies and the design of studies that will provide compelling evidence.

Lunch will be served from 1pm in the Wolfson Atrium and the workshop will run from 2.15pm until 4.50pm.
