Published Tue Oct 22nd 2013

You are invited to attend a special upcoming lecture, “Personalized Medicine in the 21st Century” to be delivered by this year’s Bruce Visiting Scholar, Dr. Jeremy Nicholson from Imperial College London.
 
Professor Nicholson is one of the world’s foremost experts in personalized medicine, particularly in understanding how gene contributions and environmental factors come together to determine human health, disease risk profile, and responses, good or bad, to therapy.

Professor Nicholson’s visit to Queen’s is possible because of a very generous gift by Dr. Andrew and Margaret Bruce that established the Dr. Andrew and Margaret Bruce Endowment for Visiting Scholars in Surgical Innovation.
 
Delivering effective and safe therapies perfectly tailored to the biological fingerprint of the individual is one of the great challenges for 21st century medicine. In advancing personalized therapies, investigators like Professor Nicholson are also providing a roadmap to more general healthcare and lifestyle management.
 
This is a terrific opportunity to hear from a global leader on this important topic and we hope that you will join us on November 6th.
