FAST Congress


NGS in Medicine

November 5-6, 2013 | Boston Marriott Cambridge | Cambridge, MA

The latest developments in NGS technologies provide opportunities for clinicians and drug developers to guide patient care, improve clinical development, and advance personalized medicine.  But adoption of NGS tests in the clinic requires assay development, clinical and analytical validation, CLIA certification, quality control, and standards development. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Inaugural Next-Generation Sequencing in Medicine meeting will address assay development and validation, case studies in using NGS in clinical care, utility of sequencing in clinical drug development, regulatory and reimbursement issues, as well as potential of NGS as companion diagnostics.

Topics Include: 

  • NGS as a clinical test: assay development, validation and quality control 
  • Clinical utility of sequencing in guiding patient care 
  • Interpretation of clinical NGS data 
  • Utility of NGS in drug development and clinical trials 
  • Diagnostic potential of whole genome sequencing 
  • Role of NGS in advancing personalized medicine
