DayOne - the innovation hub for precision medicine has a vision to “Create a world leading precision medicine hub respected for its impact and collaboration across silos.”
The hub consists of the community that we build with representatives from across industry, academia and healthcare. The focus is Basel where the initiative began but we are open to working outside the region.
How do we define Precision Medicine?
The diagram above captures how we think about Precision Medicine. Precision Medicine is the combination of diagnosis, intervention and digital tools that taking into account the needs of the patient provides the right treatment to the right patient at the right time. We believe that it should use the full potential of available technology and knowledge and stimulate paradigm shifts in current approaches.
What do we mean by impact and collaboration?
Impact will eventually be when the lives of patients are improved from initiatives the hub has supported. The path to get there will involve many smaller steps of impact from - new connections, new projects (whether they “fail” or succeed) and knowledge shared. Collaboration is when individuals are able to build connections and potentially work together across traditional organisational boundaries.
What do we do?
We have 3 main activities;
Conference - an annual conference focusing on co-creating the future of health
Experts - expert events on topics of interest with a focus on workshops and networking. A concept around a deep dive on topics of interest such as Artifiical Intelligence in Healthcare with selected experts from the network is under development. The expert group and core team also give advice to Basel Stadt and Handelskammer Beider Basel on the topic of Life Science and Innovation.
Lab - Support collaborative projects with access to experts and infrastructure including physical space when needed.
Who are we?
The initiative is managed by BaselArea.swiss in close collaboration with the Canton of Basel-Stadt. There is a core team with representatives from across industry, academia, healthcare providers and support services. We are also supported by a number of partners.
