Report on the 2st ESPT Summer School on Pharmacogenomics and Theranostics

Rome, June 9th-14th, 2014

 

The 2st Summer School on Pharmacogenomics and Theranostic, entitled:IMG 02482 »Pharmacogenomics and other Omics leading to personalized medicine: Established and emerging scientific, clinical and ethical aspects« and organized by the European Society of Pharmacogenomics and Theranostics was held between June 9th and June 14th 2014 in Rome, Italy. The course was attended by approximately 50 participants and 27 speakers. The main topic of the summer school was the role of pharmacogenomics and other omics in personalized medicine. The programme consisted of 30 lectures, three »Meet the professor« sessions and a visit to St. Andrea university hospital in Rome. In 60 minute lectures, the speakers presented the latest findings in the fields of pharmacogenetics, personalized medicine and bioethics. The “Meet the professors” sessions gave the students a unique opportunity to discuss their work and research problems with the speakers. St. Andrea hospital in Rome is a modern hospital, oriented towards implementation of personalized medicine in the clinical practice. The students were able to see their Laboratory for advanced molecular diagnostic with integrated platforms, used to achieve this goal.

On the last day the participants were asked to fill out the questionnaires surveying different aspects of the summer school in order to help us to improve the organization and the quality of ESPT Summer Schools in the future. The results are summarized in the Table below.

Most of the participants commended on professional programme in general, quality of lectures and workshops, meet the professor session, networking between students and interaction between students and professors as well as the organization of the school. Some studends suggested to introduced short breaks (10 minutes) between each lessons and some complaints were expressed about the distance of the school and hotel location from the city centre.By the whole, we believe that the summer school had a great success. There was a very friendly atmosphere which helped communication and knowledge exchange. Participants gained a deeper view of challenges and opportunities of Pharmacogenomics and Theranostics approaches to Health.
