Many renowned speakers have confirmed their presence at ICPHC 2018.  Get to know them here, and take a look at the preliminary program.

In addition to in-depth scientific presentations, ICPHC 2018 will include:

  • A session especially intended for physicians and pharmacists about the rational use of drugs:  “the right drug” to “the right patient” at “the right dosage”.
  • Time periods reserved for group discussions after the sessions, to bring the conversation further.
  • Various talks about the ethical and legal challenges brought forth by personalized health care, as well as the popular perceptions surrounding “patient-centered” medicine.
  • A Young Investigators Forum where up-and-coming researchers will get an opportunity to present their research and get feedback from experienced researchers and mentors.

Celebrating the 15th anniversary of the completion of the Human Genome Project, the conference program will help bridge the gap between knowledge and research, and responsible clinical application.
