We also invited two special guests: Eric Green, director of the National Human Genome Research Institute and Benedikt Westphalen, Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich. They discussed the main topics of their work.
"What I mean by genomic medicine is this medical discipline, in full swing, which aims to use information about the genome of patients in the planning of therapeutic conduct, not treating patients based on the general presentation of a disease, which leads to a general therapeutic approach, universally valid. On the contrary, genomics helps us recognize that each patient is slightly different, and if we can cultivate data about these differences, then we can guide treatment” said Dr. Eric Green during the special session ”20 years after Human Genome Project”
