In contemporary biomedicine, care practices are increasingly interlaced with research and development activities, leading to the emergence of new biomedical domains, such as personalized medicine. Personalized medicine involves the shaping of unprecedented relationships between clinical practice and technoscientific innovation processes, which need to be explored in their social and technological dimensions. In this article, based on ethnographic research carried out within an institute of care and research in Northern Italy, it will be analysed the reconfiguration of medical practice and health professions due to the increasing adoption of organizational strategies in support of the circulation of knowledge, biological materials and technologies between scientific laboratories and care settings. From the analytical point of view, a special attention it will be paid to the organizational arrangements performed by physicians and scientist in order to support the dialogue between research laboratories and care contexts, in which personalised medicine is shaped.
