BIO Investor Forum Session Recap: Precision Medicine: Leveraging National Genomic Databases for Therapy Development (U.S., UK, Iceland)


As the price point for full genome analysis falls through the $1,000 per person milestone, national efforts are ramping up for large studies that should enable much more personalized therapies.  This data should accelerate drug development by clarifying genetic targets and the most appropriate patient sub-groups for clinical trials. At the 14th Annual  BIO Investors Forum in San Francisco, a panel of precision medicine experts came together to share their perspectives on the current state Read More >

Gareth Williams  - Head Shot (March 2013) C High(2146527_1)

Since before the mapping of the human genome just over a decade ago, we have been applying our growing understanding the genome and associated –omes to medical and industrial uses. Thanks to this understanding, we now have the ability to pinpoint a specific genetic variation in a specific patient which can predict sensitivity to certain drugs. But where is innovation in genomics coming from? And where is it going? What roles are emerging markets playing? Read More >
