Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Sixth Annual
Companion Diagnostics
Strategy, Partnership, Technology and Adoption
August 18-19, 2015 | Capital Hilton | Washington, DC

The co-development of drugs and diagnostics, i.e. companion diagnostics development, is promising, and in some cases already delivering significant patient benefits, healthcare cost savings, and revenue opportunities. It requires a new business model to fit the emerging strategies in the marketplace. It also carries out most technological advances both as IVD products, and as laboratory developed tests with gene panels and even whole exome sequencing playing a role of companion tests. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Sixth Annual Companion Diagnostics: Strategy & Partnerships conference is designed to facilitate knowledge and opinion exchange between pharmaceutical and diagnostics executives, translational scientists, clinicians, business experts, regulators, international companion diagnostics leaders, and other parties involved in drug-diagnostics co-development and precision medicine. Case studies of successful collaboration between pharmaceutical and diagnostics companies’ researchers and executives will be presented.

The meeting will cover a range of topics including:

  • Collaboration between pharma and diagnostics in discovery, development and commercialization
  • Integration of Rx and Dx development plans
  • Case studies for successful pharma–diagnostics collaboration
  • Various business models for pharma–diagnostics collaboration
  • Ways to increase the value for the diagnostic partners
  • Pharma-diagnostics alliance management
  • Market access for a drug and a companion test
  • In Vitro Companion Diagnostic Devices Guidance
  • Approval processes outside the US (EMA guidance, Japan and Canada considerations)
  • Pharmacogenomics as the driving force for precision medicine
  • Novel molecular technologies for companion diagnostics: development and implementation
  • NGS-based assays to guide therapeutic decisions
  • Clinical use and utility of companion tests
  • Diagnostics services in biomarker-driven clinical trials
