Default Genomics for Drug Discovery, Validation and Clinical Development with AstraZeneca, Pf

In just two weeks, Cambridge Healthtech Institute's NGS for Drugs, Patients and Clinical Trials will feature a series of opening discussions focused on the utilization of genomic data for decision making during drug development, including steps for discerning and validating targets, model selection, biomarker development, patient stratification and CAP/CLIA-certified operations.

Join leaders from Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Sanofi, Gilead, Genedata and Washington University, as they share their first-hand experiences using genomic information for data driven decision making.
