Lecture: Precision Medicine: Forging a Path to More Effective, Less Toxic, Personalized Treatments for Patients.
Precision medicine seeks to identify the unique molecular characteristics of each patient and their disease. The goal is to then treat the patient based on these personal and disease characteristics rather than with traditional, standard of care practices that are blanket therapies for anyone with this disease. Advances in drug development for targeted therapies, "biomarkers” as predictive and diagnostic indicators, and the world of “omics” will be discussed in this presentation, with a few specific examples to highlight each of these.
