Cancer is a devastating disease that kills hundreds of thousands of people every year. The rapidly evolving field of personalised medicine is playing an increasingly important role in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Much investment is being made in research related to personalised medicine to improve health outcomes for patients.


Integrating China in the International Consortium for Personalized Medicine (IC2PerMed) project is a Horizon 2020 Coordination and Support Action which aims to provide policy makers with key solutions to enable the convergence of a common approach to personalised medicine. IC2PerMed aims to support collaboration between the EU and China on personalised medicine research, innovation and policy developments.


During the webinar, thought leaders from Italy and China will discuss why we need personalised medicine for cancer and provide examples and recommendations for effective implementation of this approach in different settings.
