The Stratified Medicine Symposium is being organised and funded by the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre at Guy’s and St. Thomas NHS Foundation Trust and King’s College London, and seeks to bring together leaders in the field who have a specialist interest in stratified medicine.

The symposium aims to highlight recent developments in biomarker discovery and provide opportunities for speakers and the audience to discuss future approaches and collaborations.

It will also consider the opportunities and challenges faced by those undertaking stratified medicine research, and help identify what practitioners require in order to best adopt a stratified approach.
