Date: 29 April - 27 May 2020

Timezone: CEST (GMT + 2)

ELIXIR Slovenia will organize a Virtual Spring Seminar Series 2020 where experts from all over the world will share their experiences with systems medicine.

Systems medicine is a field that will enable the translation of recent technological and scientific advances into the clinical practice. With systems medicine we will boost our understanding of disease mechanisms and the efficacy of treatments. Ultimately, systems medicine will bring a more personalised approach to healthcare, which may radically change the interaction between patients, doctors and other healthcare professionals. New healthcare approaches are an urging need, even accelerated in the Covid-19 era.

The webinars will be hosted by Prof. Dr. Damjana Rozman, Faculty of Medicine, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. You can join the webinars on Zoom by following this link.
