20 January 2017

The Wolfson Medical School Building, University of Glasgow

 To complement the University of Glasgow’s focus on precision medicine, exemplified by the partnership within the Stratified Medicine Scotland Innovation Centre (a £20m collaboration between academia, industry and the NHS), the Health Economics and Health Technology Assessment (HEHTA) Group  introduced a new research theme entitled “Economics of Precision Medicine”.

To mark the introduction of this new theme, HEHTA hosted an afternoon workshop, Improving the focus of Precision Medicine: the role of Health Technology Assessment (HTA).  The workshop comprised a series of talks given by invited speakers.  These considered issues related to the successful development of precision medicine technologies and the potential role of HTA analysis and thinking in the selection of candidate technologies and the design of studies that will provide compelling evidence
