Monrovia, MA, June 08, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Susan Hager, Vice President of Corporate Communications & Government Affairs at Foundation Medicine, will give a presentation on “Precision Medicine in the Information Age” at GTCbio’s Precision Medicine Conference to be held on July 7-8, 2016 in Boston, MA.
The existing model of cancer care is rapidly evolving. Physicians and insurers alike have embraced the value of “precision medicine” in the delivery of cancer care, increasingly taking advantage of molecular information to guide informed treatment decisions. However, in this era of precision medicine, the definition of a “similar patient” has becoming progressively narrower. In this session, attendees will learn about challenges and opportunities to make precision oncology care a reality for patients worldwide.
There is a huge drive in Precision Medicine as it integrates research and clinical practice to build a knowledge base that can better guide individualized patient care. At a crucial time, where there are efforts to scale up population-based genome sequencing and integrate it with clinical data, this meeting will discuss the progress towards the implementation of precision medicine.
This conference brings together multiple stakeholders with a holistic view of the precision medicine landscape to discuss the future of healthcare. The summit will bring together an exciting balance of industry, academia, and government so that delegates have the unique opportunity to network with colleagues from different sectors and gain fresh perspective in precision medicine.
I. Overcoming Challenges in the Commercialization of Precision Medicine
II. Implementation of Precision Medicine: Strategies & Technologies
III. Precision Medicine Beyond Oncology
