Rapid advances in ‘omic’ technologies and the continued growth of digital health technologies including the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) have provided clinicians with the unprecedented ability to tailor medical treatment to the individual characteristics of each patient. Understanding patients’ molecular and genetic profiles, give insight into their susceptibility to a particular disease or their response to a specific treatment. This leads to the emergence of a new health care strategy, precision medicine. It will enable more precise diagnosis, more informed clinical decisions and, ultimately, a more targeted and effective treatment or intervention for every patient, improving the overall care quality.

The emergence of precision medicine as a disruptive medical approach has been attracting great interests from health care industries and research communities. Nevertheless, there are significant challenges to overcome before it achieves its full disruptive potential.

In the UK, precision medicine has become a key innovation focus for health care development. Increasingly, cross-board efforts have been applied to progress precision medicine technologies, from government agencies, research communities, to industry companies, and healthcare providers.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together relevant communities, sensor technology providers, new molecular characterisation technology developers and innovators working in AI, and other relevant stakeholders such as innovation funders. It aims to facilitate knowledge sharing, stimulate new ideas generation, develop new collaborations and partnerships, and promote the innovation development and the adaptation of such sensing technologies in the UK health industries.

Leading experts will discuss key subjects relevant to market challenges and opportunities, state of the art sensing technologies, emerging sensing technologies, as well as relevant innovation funding opportunities in the UK. Agenda will be released closer to the event.

The event will also have exhibition stands for industrial exhibitors interested in showcasing their technologies, expertise, and capabilities to the event participants.
