Abstract

The discursiveness of digital health and precision medicine taking place at the confluence of the positions of the developers of the biotechnologies, the medical applications of these technologies and the reactions of the public establishes and stabilizes the final form of precision medicine’s socio-technological alignment
matrix. Hence, the analysis of this discursive alignment process, which is largely designed by the debate at conferences, is of pivotal importance for the understanding of current biomedicine. Realizing the importance of this discursiveness construction for the final expression of future healthcare practices, I conducted an analysis of the discourses produced through the various
communications that were presented at an international congress on the applications of biotechnologies in biomedicine. This paper aims to present some outcomes of such analysis.
