This event is now apart of the Clinical Diagnostics & Research Virtual Event Series.
Labroots 2nd Annual Event in the Precision Medicine Virtual Event Series 2017 was a success and is now availabe On-Demand!
Imagine receiving a full diagnosis from a simple blood test, or the ability to tailor the perfect treatment to your individual genetic makeup, taking into account your specific susceptibilities to side effects. What if we could apply a patient’s genetic information to gain insights into the genetic variations of diseases and expedite drug development, to create more precise therapies? This is the goal of Precision Medicine.
The following topics were disussed at this years event:
Precision Medicine 2017 will continue the dialogue and provide updates on the Precision Medicine Initiative ® (PMI), that called for initial funding of $215 million to support the creation of a national research cohort of 1 million or more U.S. volunteers (the PMI Cohort Program; $130 million), new efforts in cancer drug development ($70 million), advances in FDA regulatory structures ($10 million), and development of interoperability standards and requirements that address privacy and enable secure exchange of data across systems through the ONC ($5 million).
Precision Medicine is becoming an integral part of research in the science community. The discipline not only involves individual genetic information, but also environmental, behavioral, and clinical data. A combination of these factors allows researchers to put together a comprehensive view of each patient that aids in their search for precision approaches to health maintenance, disease prevention, and therapies.
