Join Australian Genomics' DNA dialogue seminar for November: "Transforming health in Singapore through precision medicine" featuring Prof Patrick Tan from PRECISE Singapore.
Singapore, like many other countries, faces evolving healthcare demands, driven by a rapidly ageing population and increased prevalence of chronic diseases. Precision medicine (PM) is an innovative data-driven medical approach where scientists and doctors take into consideration the patient’s genetic background, lifestyle and environmental factors to pre-empt the development of diseases, deliver accurate diagnosis and optimise treatments.
In Singapore, the National Precision Medicine (NPM) programme is a whole-of-government approach to explore how PM should be best deployed to transform healthcare, drive research and clinical innovation, propel growth and create value propositions to uplift the local biomed tech industry. Through NPM, we hope to preserve health and improve health outcomes through a data-driven medical approach to provide Singaporeans with the highest quality of life.
