The Universities at Shady Grove Committee on Collaboration, 
Interprofessional and Interdisciplinary Education Strategies (CIPES) 
presents the 

3rd Annual Biomedical Sciences Day

Personalized Medicine
Progress, Products, Patients and Policy

Thursday, November 17, 2011

Building I  Auditorium

Personalized medicine is a medical model emphasizing customization of healthcare, with all decisions and practices tailored to individual patients.  Recently, this has involved the systematic use of genetic information about the patient to select or optimize preventative and therapeutic care.  Of all the scientific and social promises that stem from advances in our understanding of the human genome, the prospect of examining a person's entire genome, in order to make individualized risk predictions and treatment decisions is within our reach.

A poster session highlighting undergraduate and graduate student research projects and activities in Biological Sciences, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Respiratory Therapy will precede the panel discussion.
