Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Third Annual

Companion Diagnostics

Strategies for Guiding Treatment and Improving Health

March 10-11, 2016 | Hilton San Francisco Union Square| San Francisco, CA
Part of the 23rd International Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference


The introduction of new clinical trial protocols, next-generation sequencing, reimbursement constraints, immunotherapy treatments and changing regulatory guidelines are all impacting the progress of companion diagnostics. Conflicting demands on the system make it difficult to assess the best way to move forward in matching patients with a treatment regimen that is suited to them based on genomic information. The standard of care in oncology demonstrates how powerful this change and adaptation can be to the practice of personalized medicine, but developing a comprehensive and successful plan requires careful consideration of the factors at play. Experts in the field will assemble for the Companion Diagnostics symposium to address these questions and shed light on both the technology development as well as implementation.

Who should attend: VPs, Directors, Managers, CEOs, CSOs, Professors and Scientists from large Pharma, Biotechs and Academia working in fields of Companion Diagnostics, Business Development, R&D, Clinical Research, in vitro Diagnostics, Personalized Healthcare, Targeted Therapies and Oncology.

Topics will include, but are not limited to:

  • Evaluating new business models for the changing environment in companion diagnostics
  • Managing reimbursement, regulation, and patient risk
  • Curating information to measure outcomes
  • Appraising a systems approval of companion diagnostics
  • Amalgamating and synthesizing data for the physician
  • Building infrastructure to support immunotherapy
  • Employing advanced analytics for big data and personalized medicine
  • Reviewing newest companion diagnostic products on the market
  • Analyzing impact of payment schemes, US and abroad
