Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 2nd Annual

Precision Medicine

Beyond the Genome for Insights into New Treatments

February 20-22, 2017  | Moscone North Convention Center | San Francisco, CA
Part of the 24th International Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference

 

The Precision Medicine meeting will outline the steps needed to personalize therapy and make it available to patients and physicians. This year’s exciting agenda will take a comprehensive look at the construction of gene panels, the use of molecular assays for selecting patients for treatments including but not limited to immunotherapy, the computational tools that allow sharing of data amongst institutions and enable improved medical decision making and patient outcomes. Leaders of the community will convene to talk about how precision medicine is transforming the field of medicine, accelerating biomedical discoveries and enabling the accurate diagnosis and treatment of disease.

Who should attend: Chief Strategy Officer, CEO, CMO, COO, CSO, CTO, Director, Lab Head, Manager, President, Professor, Research Scientist, VP from Genomics, Diagnostics, Applied Technology, Oncology, Genomic Targets

Topics will include, but are not limited to:

  • Review of how physicians are using precision medicine in oncology, infectious disease, microbiology, cardiology, diabetes
  • IT infrastructure needed for precision medicine
  • Education and training of pathologists in precision medicine
  • Precision medicine implementation strategies
  • Calculating overall risk of treatment
  • Precision medicine approach to activating the immune system
  • Companion diagnostics tailored to immunotherapy
  • Developing standards for analysis, interpretation and reporting of clinical genome sequencing results
  • Sharing patient data to achieve statistical power
  • "Computational" pathology for precision medicine
  • Newborn testing and screening using whole genome sequencing
