“Genomics, market segmentation and the implications for the pharmaceutical industry

Therapeutics have historically targeted broad classes of diseased and patients. Today, the existing approaches are reaching their limits. At the same time, genomics medicine is being used to isolate disease subsets and treat specific patients. Diagnosing, proscribing, and delivering such personalized medicines will dramatically change the roles of physicians and pharmacists, and will also require transforming the distribution channels used to deliver these medicines

Stephen Eck, Vice President of Oncology Medical Sciences; Astellas Pharma Global Development

1:30—2:45 pm:  Open, Cheap, and Fast: New Models of Biotechnology Entrepreneurship

The rapid fall in computing prices represented by Moore’s Law unleashed a wave of IT entrepreneurship from 1990-2010. Today, dramatic cost reductions in genomics, outsourcing, open data and falling IT costs are enabling new models of biotech startups

Ryan Bethencourt, Director of Business Development; Parexel
