The transition into the new era of biomedical research allowed the implementation of the obtained results in advanced fields like genomics, proteomics, complex immunological studies to facilitate deciphering the complex mechanisms of diseases and open up new clinical and therapeutic directions. In recent years we assist to a paradigm shift in medicine representing the transition from traditional medicine based on the principle of “one size fits for all” to a personalized medicines or precision medicine, an innovative approach to prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases, which takes into account the differences between individuals in terms of both genetic and epigenetic factors whose influence is more and more prominent. The workshop aims to be a place for sharing ideas among professionals recognized in the country and in the Diaspora and young researchers, to create the opportunities for future collaboration, with the ultimate aim to develop strategies to personalized therapies applicable in cancerous disease, regenerative medicine or other types of diseases and the development of joint projects in order to attract European and international financing. The event will be hosted by Oncogen research center in Timisoara which aims to be a hub for integration of Romanian specialists in the European research area
in cutaneous melanoma.
