Registrations are now open for the Rare Cancers Australia CanForum 2018 in Canberra in September.
The forum, which will be held in parliament house on 11 September, follows a similar event last year.
This year's event will include a range of high profile speakers with expertise in artificial intelligence, bioethics, blockchain, genomics, clinical research, industry and politics.
Keynote speakers include health minister Greg Hunt and shadow minister Catherine King.
The focus of this year's event will be on how genomics and personalised medicine are transforming the way cancers are treated.
It will consider the full potential for artificial intelligence in cancer research and ongoing debates over who owns a person's DNA and what are the implications of this in terms of research and privacy.
CanForum will also provide an Australian first look at opportunities for blockchain technology to enhance security and research capabilities beyond what our traditional systems provide. How can this new and powerful technology impact the cost of clinical trials and drug development?
Registrations are now open but places are limited.
