AIMday Precision Medicine 2017
June 15, Navet, Uppsala Biomedical Center (BMC)
AIMday is arranged by Uppsala University Innovation with support from SciLifeLab. The event brought together academic scientists, clinicians and company representatives to discuss the subject of Precision Medicine. PCG was represented by Antonio Mastroianni, who participated by leading a workshop on How important will standardization of data and interoperability be to the development, use, and understanding of precision medicine and will this be even more important than conventional medicine? The event was an excellent exchange of ideas on precision medicine and various types of data that would be required. The group felt that precision medicine in itself required further definition by the industry and only after that point could data standardization play a role. Interoperability was considered a secondary consideration as data standardization would be a pre-requisite, especially as personal data from mobile phones and devices would be entering the therapeutic decision process in the future. The other interesting aspect was the presence of data standards in research, pre-clinical, and post-market, but little to no cross-over between these standards. Many of the data scientists estimated that 20-30 percent of their time was dedicated just to data cleansing and optimization, but this was an expected and accepted part of research.
June 9 Update:
Our very own, Antonio Mastroianni will be participating in the AIMday Precision Medicine 2017Workshop on June 15. Antonio will host a session on the role and importance of standardization of data and interoperability in the development, use, and understanding of precision medicine. AIMday Precision Medicine is a meeting focused on bringing academic scientists, clinicians and company representatives together for discussions on a combination of knowledge of human ‘omnics’ and new technology for molecular diagnostics as well as for handling big data.
