As part of the scientific programme, 8 working groups will be organized, all at the same time, on:

  • Sept 26, 2018, afternoon: Work in  groups with the tutor and co-tutor;
  • Sept 27, 2018, afternoon: Presentations

The goal of this session is networking and knowledge exchange between participants. Each group will present the clinical case(s) as good clinical practices of personalized medicine. The presentation of the “intersection” of different diagnostic data (clinical symptoms, genetic, serum/blood analyses, UZ, CT, MRI- images , tissue examinations, functional tests, etc.) are encouraged.

  • Creation of groups

    • Participants will be divided  in 8  groups with a limited number of seats (see list of topic below).

    • Each tutor is invited to suggest 3 to 4 key (review) papers including: case description, epidemiology, molecular basis, personalized Dgx and Thx with ethical and economical consideration of the selected topic.
  • Presentations

    Each presentation should consist of 10-12 slides with figures and tables for 15 minutes oral presentation including epidemiology, molecular basis, personalized diagnostics and personalized therapy with economical and ethical considerations of the selected topic. Presentations (8 x 15 min) will be scheduled on Sept. 27 in the afternoon.

    All presentations will be evaluated by scientific board and the best presentation will be awarded.
