The Functional Precision Medicine Seminar, brought to you by the Members of SFPM, is a monthly series dedicated to showcasing advances in functional assays and their application in oncology precision medicine

Functional assays are in the truest sense precision medicine; matching a patient to a drug by directly testing their live tissue. The hypothesis is simple, yet in a personalized healthcare approach dominated by population scale genomics, the utilization of functional assays is limited. There exists a great opportunity to expand precision medicine beyond genomics, ultimately bringing better treatment options and the potential for greater outcomes to patients in need.

Bringing together a unique mix of pharmaceutical, academic and technology leaders, the series is must attend for those interested in the use of assaying technology to further biomarker discovery, drug R&D and personalized healthcare outcomes.

Through guest speakers, interactive panel discussions and Q&A sessions, the series will focus on these key topics:

  • Demonstrating the clinical utility of functional precision medicine testing
  • Implementing functional testing in precision medicine clinical trials
  • Accelerating the application of functional testing
  • Addressing stakeholder, educational and investment challenges for functional precision medicine
