Fifth Annual


Personalized Medicine


November 4-5, 2013 | Boston Marriott Cambridge | Cambridge, MA

Personalized Medicine has the potential to optimize healthcare by allowing individual patients to receive earlier diagnosis and risk assessment, followed by tailored therapy with best response and minimum toxicity. The pharmaceutical industry has the opportunity to develop drugs that are targeted to sub-populations of responders, which may have otherwise failed a trial in the general population. However, while the concept of personalized medicine is promising, implementation is proving challenging. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Fifth Annual Personalized Medicine meeting addresses value creation and ROI models, strategies for co-development of drugs and diagnostics, clinical trial designs for personalized medicine, and implementation barriers related to IP, regulatory, and reimbursement issues.

Topics Include: 

  • Strategies for companion diagnostic development
  • Value creation models in personalized medicine
  • Case studies in drug-diagnostic co-development
  • Implementing personalized medicine at big pharma
  • Biomarkers for patient selection
  • Impact of personalized medicine on clinical trial design
  • Regulatory and reimbursement issues
