The NBER Conference: Economics of Personalized Medicine (Sept 21-22, 2016)

On September 21/22, 2016, the National Bureau of Economic Research held an academic conference on "Economic Dimensions of Personalized and Precision Medicine."   The conference was supported by USC and Columbia University, and chaired by Ernst Bernt, Dana Goldman, and John Rowe.

For a note on the conference at the Healthcare Economist blog by Jason Shafrin, here.  For the conference website (including numerous downloadable papers and powerpoints), here.

I've also cut/pasted the conference agenda after the break.
