Welcome to the Centre for Personalised Medicine podcast, where we explore the promises and pitfalls of personalised medicine and ask questions about the ethical and societal challenges it creates.

The Centre for Personalised Medicine is a partnership between the University of Oxford’s Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics and St Anne’s College, Oxford. It is a communication, engagement and research vehicle for students, academics, clinicians, the public and policy makers to explore the benefits and challenges of personalised medicine. The Centre’s principal aim is to explore personalised medicine from a range of perspectives.

In the pilot series, we interviewed members of the Centre for Personalised Medicine advisory board about their careers and their views on personalised medicine.

In our current series, we speak to researchers in the Clinical Ethics, Law and Society group at Oxford and Southampton to hear about their work on the different ethical and societal issues within personalised medicine.
