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
