The Mini Symposium on Personalized Medicine, jointly held with the International Society of Clinical Biostatistics, has been finalized. It will start on 28 August at 9.00 am.
The following speakers have been invited: Martin Filipits (Vienna) will start by talking on the clinical background. His presentation will be followed by a presentation on quality control in ‐omics studies, to be given by Bertram Müller‐Myhsok (Munich).
