What are the objectives?

The Scientific Committee has designed the conference with two main objectives:

  • To provide a platform for scientists involved in Precision Medicine and Ageing to share ideas and best practice that could help address the current scientific and clinical developments.
  • To establish and strengthen scientific partnerships between leading British and Israeli researchers, including links that could translate into submissions to the next bilateral BIRAX Ageing Call that will focus on Ageing (including Precision Medicine).

What will the conference consist of?

The interdisciplinary programme will consist of plenary lectures, as well as opportunities to network and hold informal discussions with other participants. Speakers and delegates from a wide variety of fields will bring added value to the discussions taking place.
