Our March 17 presentation, PRECISION MEDICINE IN ONCOLOGY, turned into an eye-opening experience, including a Q & A between our excellent speaker, Dr. David Duggan and attendees. It isn’t every day one learns about the cutting-edge of medicine by an articulate scientist from TGen (Translational Genomics Research Institute). Dr. Duggan shared his knowledge of the technological advances in genomics and gave us an understanding of the biology of human disease as he focused on the biggest benefactor to date—oncology.
These medical advancements allow patients to gather technical information about their DNA with specific attention to molecular information about particular cancers. To have access to this incredible information allows patients and families to make informed medical decisions about medical treatments.
Here is a list of companies that Dr. Duggan mentioned during the presentation:
Ashion Analytics (TGen JV Co)
Personal Genome Diagnostics
plus 50 Other companies and academic medical centers
Circulating Tumor DNA
Personal Genome D1agnostics
