Join some of Melbourne’s leading medical researchers for a three course meal and a discussion about the possibilities offered by the emerging world of personalised medicine, brought closer to us through the powers of the newly emerging discipline of ‘life sciences computation’. Life scientists and computer scientists are forming exciting collaborations to refine diagnostics, imaging, drug design and treatments in their quest to further our understanding of the major diseases affecting our community: cancer, epilepsy, genetic disorders, infectious diseases and eye disease. This is your chance to speak to some experts in the field and sort out the hype from the hope.

This event is part of Melbourne Knowledge Week 28 October – 3 November 2013, proudly presented by the City of Melbourne. For more information visit: melbourne.vic.gov.au/knowledge
