WELCOME LETTER

The 5th International Congress of the European Society for Pharmacogenomics and Personalised Therapy (ESPT 2019) will be held from Wednesday October 16 to Friday October 18 in Seville, Spain. The ESPT 2019 congress will again bring together leading international scientists and healthcare professionals who are actively working in the fields of Pharmacogenomics and Personalised Therapy. After successful events in the previous years (Catania 2017, Budapest 2015, Lisbon 2013, Bled 2011), we are very happy to have our 2019 meeting in Spain, in collaboration with the Spanish Society for Pharmacogenetics and Pharmacogenomics (SEFF). The theme of the ESPT 2019 congress is Precision Medicine and Personalised Health.

The congress will consist of world class plenary speakers, addressing current aspects and future directions on pharmacogenomics and personalised medicine. Keynote speakers include a.o. Prof Sir Munir Pirmohamed, Prof Ingolf Cascorbi, Dr. Lili Milani, Prof. Wolfgang Sadee, Prof Daniel Mueller, Prof Mark Caufield, and Prof Klaus Pantel.

The congress will provide the opportunity for researchers and clinicians to come together and share their research and experiences in basic, clinical and translational fields. There will be a special emphasis on clinical implementation of pharmacogenetics, following the recent Spanish and Estonian initiatives in this direction. Young researchers and clinicians are especially invited to join us in Seville, and share and discuss their input with the attendees.

Consider submitting your work as an abstract and please join us to expand our knowledge and network and make new friends.

See you in Seville in 2019!

Prof Dr Miquel Taron – President SEFF

Dr Cristina Rodríguez-Antona – CNIO Madrid
