Data-Driven Rx & Dx

The availability of large clinical data and other data types (e.g. toxicology, pharmacogenomics, omics, etc.) combined with the fast-paced evolution of innovative data mining tools allows us to gain new and unprecedented molecular and clinical insights. These data have the potential to impact the world of healthcare in many ways: enabling the identification of new therapeutic targets, finding new uses for existing drugs, allows the identification and characterization of new diagnostic tools, or brings us closer to the understanding of the molecular details of poorly characterized diseases. In this session, we will discuss applications and advancements that build upon large data as applied to both the therapeutics and clinical diagnostics.
