What were the growth opportunities discussed during the think tank?

  • Enhancing Biomarker Precision: Biomarkers have huge potential for transforming cancer care, but current ones are limited or not impactful enough. We need more inclusive and precise biomarkers, covering diverse tumor biology elements, including signals from a variety of genes, mutations, and the tumor’s microenvironment, to improve response prediction.
  • Advancing Precision Oncology: Cancer treatment could drastically improve with universal molecular-level understanding through universal sequencing. Collaboration across industries is crucial, involving labs, pharma, payers, and regulators to standardize testing and enhance precision oncology.
  • Vital Role of Public-Private Partnerships: Public-private partnerships are vital for innovative projects like building clinical genomic databases, ensuring advancements reach patients. Various models, including risk sharing and outcome-based pricing, should be explored with payers to improve access to treatments.
  • Refining Genomic Data Analysis: Genomic testing across academia, communities, and pharma yields diverse but often clinically uninformative data. Standardized testing protocols are emerging to refine these datasets, now increasingly complex and reliant on AI for analysis. Without clinically useful data, even vast datasets are meaningless.
