INTRODUCTION

WELCOME!

 

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

 

It is a great pleasure and honor to invite you to the 3rd ESPT Summer School that will be held in Belgrade, Serbia, from August 20th to August 25th 2016. Following the success of the previous 2 ESPT Summer Schools in Ljubljiana (Aug 2012) and Rome (June 2014), the Education and Courses Division of ESPT has designed a comprehensive educational program in the multidisciplinary field of pharmacogenomics and personalized therapy.

 

This program includes both the fundamentals of pharmacogenomics as well as the latest knowledge on established and novel concepts in the field, as well its advanced clinical applications, and it does not require previous knowledge and experience in the field.

 

Participants in the school will include:

 

- physicians, pharmacists, and other clinical and biomedical scientists at all stages of their career that want to learn about this evolving clinical and research field,

- graduate and postgraduate students interested in pharmacogenomics and related fields,

- regulators, government employees, insurance scientists, bioethicists and other professionals

 

 The summer school will consist of lectures, held by distinguished international faculty that will cover key topics in novel concepts and clinical aplications of pharmacogenomics. Participants will have a unique opportunity to discuss their work with invited professors during the “Meet the professor session” and will be able to introduce themselves and their work to their peers on a one-to-one basis, during the “Speed dating session”.

 

It is arranged as an intensive teaching and learning event that will raise the education levels in pharmacogenomics and personalized therapy several steps higher. Innovative and original programming will enable to present, share, debate and conclude on the opportunity to translate genetic laboratory test results into actionable prescribing decisions for specific drugs, emphasising the importance of teamwork in the use of personalized medicine for improving patient care in the clinical setting. It will also be focused on the application of the newest ready-to-use tools and technologies in their working practice.

 

We hope that the 3rd ESPT Summer School will meet your expectations, provide you some unforgettable personal and professional memories, and trust that you will enjoy your visit to the very beautiful and exciting cosmopolitan city of Belgrade.

 

We look forward to welcoming you in Belgrade.

 

Sincerely yours,

 

The co-Chairs of the School
