Cafe Science Dundee - Precision Medicine in Diabetes

Activity: Other activity typesPublic engagement and outreach - public lecture/debate/seminar


Precision medicine allows doctors and researchers to predict which treatments will work for each patient. It aims to reduce the “one-size-fits-all” approach and treat patients based on their own characteristics such as their genes and family history, with an aim to minimise side effects.

Diabetes is one area where the University of Dundee are starting to dissect out the many different causes and how they should be treated, and to work out why some people get side effects with commonly used drugs, and others do not.

Prof Ewan Pearson will discuss his hopes for precision medicine, and discover the University of Dundee’s recent advances on the treatment of patients with Diabetes.

Join us at Avery & Co. at 34 South Tay Street on Monday 13th February 2017, at 7pm. This is a free event and everyone is welcome. There is no need to book in advance but arrive early to avoid disappointment.
