Deep Medicine: How Artificial Intelligence Can Make Healthcare
Author: Eric Topol
One of America's top doctors reveals how AI will empower physicians and revolutionize patient care Medicine has become inhuman, to disastrous effect. The doctor-patient relationship--the heart of medicine--is broken:
doctors are too distracted and overwhelmed to truly connect with their patients, and medical errors and misdiagnoses abound. In Deep Medicine, leading physician Eric Topol reveals how artificial intelligence can help. AI has the potential to transform
everything doctors do, from notetaking and medical scans to diagnosis and treatment, greatly cutting down the cost of medicine and reducing human mortality. By freeing physicians from the tasks that interfere with human connection, AI will create
space for the real healing that takes place between a doctor who can listen and a patient who needs to be heard.

Commercializing Novel IVDs: A Comprehensive Manual for Success
Author: Harry Glorikian
Does your company have an idea for a novel biomarker test, but you’re unsure what the market potential will be? Have you invented a more sensitive test to diagnose a common autoimmune disorder, but you’re unsure of which regulatory
pathway to pursue?
The process of developing a successful in vitro diagnostic (IVD) relies on the expertise of a diverse group of individuals, including the scientists who identify the biomarkers of significance, engineers and assay developers who translate those ideas
into a tangible product, and the sales and marketing staff who get the product into the market.
This unique manual will provide an overview of the major components to IVD development, from product conception through commercialization, and important considerations about individual aspects of the process including:
- How do I approach the regulatory process?
- How can I plan for market access, and what can I do to make sure my IVD will be reimbursed?
Also including a pre-conference signing with Harry Glorikian. Books will be available onsite or online!
Genomics and Personalized Medicine: What Everyone Needs to Know
Author: Michael Snyder, PhD, Stanford W. Ascherman Professor & Chair, Department of Genetics; Director, Center for Genomics & Personalized Medicine, Stanford University
In 2001 the Human Genome Project succeeded
in mapping the DNA of humans. This landmark accomplishment launched the field of genomics, the integrated study of all the genes in the human body and the related biomedical interventions that can be tailored to benefit a person's health. Today genomics,
part of a larger movement toward personalized medicine, is poised to revolutionize health care. By cross-referencing an individual's genetic sequence -- their genome -- against known elements of "Big Data," elements of genomics are already being incorporated
on a widespread basis, including prenatal disease screening and targeted cancer treatments. With more innovations soon to arrive at the bedside, the promise of the genomics revolution is limitless. This entry in the What Everyone Needs to Know series
offers an authoritative resource on the prospects and realities of genomics and personalized medicine. As this science continues to alter traditional medical paradigms, consumers are faced with additional options and more complicated decisions regarding
their health care. This book provides the essential information everyone needs.
