Dr. Ausiello cited specific examples where gene expression and sequencing technologies have improved the quality of patient care. "I am inspired personally by both the approach and the vision that Caliper has in helping deliver this revolution."
Additional keynote presentations were provided by Go van Dam, M.D., Ph.D., the pioneering surgeon and Associate Professor at University Medical Center Groningen, who presented on the innovative clinical application of optical imaging and biomarker detection technologies during surgical procedures to significantly improve a patient's prognosis, and by Stephan Schuster, Ph.D., Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Pennsylvania State University and project leader for the South African Genome Project and the Wooly Mammoth Genome Project, who described the use of next generation sequencing to explore evolutionary diversity within mankind and of extinct and near-extinct organisms.
Caliper's vision for personalized medicine includes several enabling technology themes that will revolutionize the practice of healthcare in the near future. Caliper's COG events are organized into tracks that are closely aligned to these revolutionary themes: next generation sequencing, imaging and pathology, biomarkers discovery, molecular diagnostics, biologics and vaccines, and targeted small molecules.
