The 8th China-EU Life Science Forum Opening in Changsha
On July 11, the 8th China-EU Life Sciences Forum, with the theme of "Openness-Trust-Cooperation-Development", opened in Changsha. Zhou Honghao, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, delivered a keynote speech entitled "Health Management and Industrial Opportunities Based on Individualized Medicine". He pointed out that the future development of individualized medicine requires conducting high-quality, large-sample clinical trials to confirm the genotype-phenotype correlation; improving the ability to identify pathogenic, rare, benign, and basic genetic variations; and constructing a complete genomic structure of common major diseases. He suggested integrating genetic test results into electronic medical records and automatically generating clinical decision programs with genotype-phenotype databases.
