CGI-Clinics – implementing cancer personalised medicine at national level

Join us for a one hour event at the EU Parliament in Brussels, Belgium on 21 March 2023 14:00-15:00 CET to discuss the aims of the CGI-Clinics project and its relevance in policy-making. The event will also be streamed online for anyone who can’t attend in person.

Register by Friday 17 March: CLICK HERE

Personalised medicine is at the core of the EU Beating Cancer Plan, and is a theme which cuts across many of the flagship initiatives it proposes to introduce. Despite these encouraging goals and promising initiatives, there is little information in the public domain about how the proposed initiatives are being developed and whether implementation will reflect lessons learnt from existing work across the region.

This meeting in Brussels and online will outline how the impact of CGI-Clinics will address known policy and service delivery barriers that prevent greater access to personalised medicine for cancer in Europe. Topics include ‘CGI-Clinics: Data-driven cancer genome interpretation for personalised cancer treatment an overview on how the project addresses unmet needs in personalized oncology, ‘Towards implementing personalised oncology at the national level: the current policy status‘ delivered by a representative from the European Commission, and a diverse multistakeholder panel discussion between medical oncologists, patient associations and policy-makers in Europe, ‘Towards a new era of personalised oncology at the EU level‘.

The event takes place on 21 March 2023 between 14:00 – 15:00 CET, and free attendance will be available both in person and virtually. Complete the online registration form by the end of Wednesday 15 March to secure your space.

Location: Room A5F385 (SPAAK Building)

About the CGI-Clinics project

CGI-Clinics is a new 5-year EU project that aims to provide a solution to an unmet need in cancer personalised medicine: cancer genome interpretation. The project aims to build a new Cancer Genome Interpreter (CGI), a bioinformatics tool powerful enough to achieve the objective of systematising tumour genome interpretation for clinical decision making, thereby allowing medical doctors to choose the most effective cancer treatments for each patient.
