Event Name: 

Singapore’s National Precision Medicine Strategy: Supporting Data-Driven Healthcare

Date: 

19 May 2021

Time: 

11am to 12 noon

Synopsis: 

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 approach, where scientists and doctors take into consideration the patient’s genetic background, lifestyle and environmental factors to pre-empt the development of diseases, and to optimise treatments.

The National Precision Medicine (NPM) programme is a whole-of-government approach to explore how PM should be best deployed in Singapore, to drive research insights, clinical innovation, and economic growth. Through NPM, we hope to contribute to Singaporeans living healthier lives as well as its eventual impact across other Asian countries.

Join Professor Patrick Tan, Executive Director of PRECISE, to understand more about Singapore’s National Precision Medicine strategy, how Singapore’s SG10K_Health cohort study pioneered the world’s largest multi-ethnic genomic databank, and the importance of a data-driven medical approach that can help unravel the secrets to greater health and disease prevention.
