The aim of this meeting is to provide an overview of GenoMed4All’s mission, clinical pilots and relevant AI use-case applications to representatives of major patients’ associations in Europe covering Myelodysplastic Syndromes, Multiple Myeloma and Sickle Cell Disease, the 3 clinical areas related to the project. The meeting is organised by the GenoMed4All consortium, in collaboration with ERN-EuroBloodNet.
