The Role of Big Data in Precision Medicine: An Example of the Art of the Possible
Dr Cecil Lynch, Accenture Chief Medical Information Officer
Tuesday 13 October, refreshments 5pm – 6pm, lecture 6pm – 7pm
Precision medicine is the goal of every physician and care giver for every patient they encounter. How do we get there? Is it all in the genome? Can we find that marker that is a binary selector for a treatment? Or is Precision Medicine much more complex than that? If so, how do we tackle that problem from the start of a clinical trial to the application of a therapy?
Dr Cecil Lynch, Chief Medical Information Officer, Accenture Health and Public Service (USA) will review a real-life data mining exploration, discuss the technologies involved, and discuss the results and what should follow. He will go over the science behind the genomics influence versus the environmental life style impacts and discuss a strategy for combing the various contributors to reaching the goal of Precision Medicine.
