About Precision Medicine World Conference (PMWC)
The Precision Medicine World Conference (PMWC), formerly known as the Personalized Medicine World Conference, is an independent and established conference that attracts recognized authorities and experts across healthcare and biotechnology sectors. The Conference – an outstanding forum to touch upon the different directions and aspects of precision medicine and attended by all the multi-disciplinary stakeholders – showcases practical content that helps close the knowledge gap by different sectors, thereby catalyzing cross-functional collaboration to further adoption of personalized medicine in the clinic.
About GeneCentric Therapeutics, Inc.
GeneCentric Therapeutics is applying proprietary technology to identify drug responder populations that enable development of precision medicine drugs and improve patient outcomes. Our approach applies the Cancer Subtype Platform (CSP®) to parse complex tumor biology into genomic signatures revealing high-resolution cancer subtypes, with potential as universal biomarkers for susceptibility to multiple classes of agents including immune-based, molecularly targeted and chemotherapeutics. We are commercializing our technology through strategic collaborations with pharmaceutical and biotech companies to define responder populations applicable throughout the drug development cycle. GeneCentric has established several pharmaceutical collaborations, including Bristol Myers Squibb and G1 Therapeutics. For more information, please visit www.genecentric.com.
