Session Abstract – PMWC 2019 Silicon Valley
Session Synopsis: Genome sequencing is now a sufficiently mature and affordable technology for clinical use. Its application promises not only to transform clinicians’ diagnostic and predictive ability, but also to improve preventative therapies, monitor response to therapy, and tailor patient treatment to an individual’s genetic make-up. However, this is not coming without the challenges of adapting existing regulatory, reimbursement and care pathways.
