A Novel Approach to Applying Genomic Patient Data to Improve Multiple Sclerosis Treatments, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

There are over 2.3 million people with multiple sclerosis (MS) worldwide; in the US alone, more than 450,000 people are living with MS today and 10,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. The need for precision medicine-based approaches to diagnose and treat MS is more critical today than ever.

MS is difficult to diagnose and manage due to a lack of identified biomarkers that predict disease onset, progression and response to therapy. To make precision medicine for MS a reality, scientists need access to high-quality, deeply-annotated clinical genomic datasets generated in a real-world patient care setting.

Join Megan Laurance, PhD, Senior Director of Data Services at DNAnexus and Greg Tranah, PhD, Director of the Center for Precision Medicine at Sutter Health in a live webinar on Monday, June 10, 2019 at 1pm EDT to learn about a new study designed to assess EHR data, patient-reported outcomes, imaging data and blood samples in a quick, secure and economical manner. The speakers will discuss the following features of the first large-scale clinical genomic MS study:

  • Study components
  • A technology platform capable of assessing clinical and genomic features of MS
  • Strategies for tracking MS subtypes, disability progression and differential response to therapy
  • Potential implications for improved diagnosis and treatment

This webinar will appeal to broad audiences including clinician researchers, biomarker sciences directors, VPs of precision medicine initiatives and health/medical media.
