WCHRI is excited to introduce a new seminar series focused on one of the University of Alberta’s signature areas… precision health research!

What is precision health research? What does it mean for the health of women and children? Join us as we embark on an exploratory journey to learn about precision health research that is happening right here at WCHRI. We’ll learn together by telling stories about precision health clinical research, by hearing about innovative discoveries and techniques in the lab, and by exploring ethical and social considerations related to precision health that are important to women, children and their families.
