1st Annual Risk in Medicine conference

The Liverpool Institute for Risk and Uncertainty plans to expand its scope into applications in medicine and allied fields. Toward that end, we held an informal convocation with researchers in the Wolfson Centre for Personalised Medicine and others within the Institute for Translational Medicine. The workshop was held in the grand and spacious Mandela Room in the Liverpool Student Guild on the morning of 2 October 2017, and included select informal talks from researchers in both risk science and personalized medicine, poster presentations about existing projects and ideas, and general open discussion about possible interactions between risk and medical researchers. Lunch was provided. The event was open to Liverpool students.
