Moreover, during the Meeting new procedures will be disclosed together with innovative perspectives for robotic surgery, radiotherapy, rehabilitation with exoskeletons, therapeutic compound preparations, especially regarding cancer therapies.
In the spotlight of the Meeting, the keywords will be not only prevention and therapies, but also prognostication of those diseases that could affect any individual with personalized medicine.
Last but not least, the other topics that will be explored in this three day Meeting wil be the new frontiers of bioengineering, nanotechnology, nanomedicine, Big Data analysis methods, and Big Data's huge unexplored potentiality in the study of diseases and new healthcare scenarios, cognitive computing, e.g. artificial intelligence able to make decisions in both healthcare and organization fields.
In conclusion, at this International Meeting in Florence from October 13th to October 15th 2016 we will have a taste of the future of the worldwide healthcare system.
