Foredrag — The lecture on 16 March 2017 will give you an insight in the path to Danish personal medicine, including the potentials and pitfalls. Speakers Henrik Ullum and Ulrik Lassen will give you an insight in how Denmark has launched a national strategy for personalized medicine which potentially will revolutionize the therapy for some patients in the future. The strategy requires intense investments in: technology, data security, legal clarity, relevant education and communication with patients. Are we ready for a medical revolution?

The Copenhagen Bioscience Lectures are a series of open lectures for all researchers and other interested in and around the Copenhagen area. Every 4 weeks, on a Thursday evening, you are invited for lectures on themes with a general interest for the Novo Nordisk Foundation Research Centers and bioscience researchers in general. Often there will be a cross-disciplinary focus.

BIO OF THE SPEAKERS
Professor Henrik Ullum is the chair of The Organization of Medical Societies in Denmark. He leads The
Copenhagen Hospital Biobank Unit and studies the health of 100.000 participants in the Danish Blood Donor study.
Ulrik Lassen is Professor, MD, PH.D., at University of Copenhagen. He established the Phase 1 Unit at the Department of Oncology at Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen, in 2005, and in 2017 he was appointed Head of Department.
The Phase 1 Unit at the Department of Oncology is one of few sites in Europe employing advanced genomic profiling in the selection of patients for early phase trials. This is attractive for pharmaceutical companies, and the unit has recently experienced major expansion. More than 400 patients from Denmark and abroad are referred annually and more than 30 phase oncology 1 trials are active, and more than 300 patients are offered whole exome sequencing, RNA sequencing, CNV and expression array. The Copenhagen Prospective Personalized Oncology program (CoPPO) enables translational research in a unique setting. The Phase 1 Unit is involved in multiple translational programs and recently received funding for a pre-clinical program aiming at performing a pre-screening of drugs to identify the optimal treatment strategy using the patient’s own cells in organoids and PDX models. This is utilized in patients referred for Phase 1 Trials, patients with newly diagnosed metastatic breast cancer and patients with newly diagnosed high grade glioma.

How do I cancel my participation?
Please help us respecting our speakers, as well as keeping track of the numbers and optimizing lecture and catering to the audience by cancelling as soon as you know that you exceptionally will not be able to make it. This means that it makes no sense to cancel after 12:00 on the day of the event, as we cannot adapt any of these with such short notice. So please, let the reminder to the event that you receive the day before, guide you to coming or cancelling. You can either cancel through Eventbrite or send an email to Sophie Labrosse (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Can I update my registration information?
Yes, just log in to Eventbrite. Please use this option also in the unlikely event that you need to cancel your registration.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No, you do not have to bring your ticket, but registration is mandatory for participation.
