Finland-Singapore Dialogue Series ”Facing Common Challenges”: Implementing Health 3.0 - Realizing the Promise of Personalized Medicine

March 28, 2017

On Friday, 24 March, the third session of the Suomi Finland 100 Singapore dialogue series was held at ETPL A*STARTCentral in Singapore. The Ambassador of Finland, H.E. Paula Parviainen, invited ETPL (in capacity of DXD Hub) to jointly host the Finnish delegation led by Sitra, the Finnish Innovation Fund. This group consisted of experts in genomics, health and social data, personalized medicine and biobanks. All delegation members are contributors to the development of a Finnish Digital Health HUB. It will provide by the year 2019 access to Finnish healthcare and genomics data for researchers and developers of new products and healthcare services.

 

The Dialogue provided a platform for an open discussion on challenges and opportunities in personalized medicine and cooperation opportunities in the development of healthcare services and health related businesses. The Dialogue and Q&A session was lively and many interesting point of views were discussed, including the need of changes to regulations and policies. The overall conclusion was that there are many similarities in the way scientist work in both Singapore and Finland and that the best way to overcome the obstacles in personalized medicine is to cooperate and learn from each other. The participants found many potential collaboration opportunities that they agreed to follow up.

 

The key speakers were Dr Sidney Yee, CEO Diagnostics Development (DxD) Hub and Executive Vice President, Innovation and Start-up Management Division, ETPL and Ms Jaana Sinipuro, Project Director of Finnish Digital Health HUB. Other speakers included Executive Director of Invitrocue Mr Steven Fang, Director of Biobank Helsinki Professor Olli Carpen and CEO of Nightingale Health Mr Teemu Suna.
