Hosted by Dr Janine Scholefield, CSIR Research Group Leader: Bioengineering and Integrated Genomics
The phrase precision medicine has been with us for over a decade. Yet, it is only recently, by embracing the fourth industrial revolution, which seeks to identify novel approaches in combating disease by combining big data knowledge of genomics with artificial intelligence that we can apply precision medicine strategies on a population scale. In this session, we outline the pipeline for developing the digital precision medicine platform, which aims to provide best treatment outcomes for patients within the unique genetic context of the South African population.
