On September 13, 2018, the Friends of Cancer Research will hold the 7th Annual "Blueprint for Breakthrough" forum Washington, DC, promoting precision medicine.
See the website here:
It's a half day meeting (8:30-1:00). It looks to me like registration is required but is free.
Scott Gottlieb MD, head of FDA, gives the opening address. The first panel features presentations by Katherine Szarama PhD (CMS NCD), and Jonathan Hirsch (Syapse). Reena Philip PhD, FDA molecular approvals, is also on this panel among others. The second panel is on "supporting development of high quality diagnostic tests" and includes Timothy Stenzel MD PhD, the new head of diagnostics at FDA, as well as speakers from United Healthcare and Memorial Sloan-Kettering.
See the full agenda at the link above or cut/pasted here below the break (agenda as of 9/5). The panel is supported and is co sponsored by Alexandria.
