About BPM Summit

This year marks the 15th anniversary of the completion of the Human Genome Project. In the decade and a half that has passed since, the genomic revolution has spurred an immeasurable level of excitement and support surrounding the promise of personalized medicine, setting high expectations for a new era of health care and rapidly transforming the field into a multi-billion dollar industry. While realizing the enormous potential of personalized medicine has turned out to be neither quick nor easy, recent scientific and technological progress has been impressive, pointing to a possible tipping point.

The 5th Annual Business of Personalized Medicine Summit will bring together top executives from across multiple stakeholder perspectives for a look at the state of the industry past, present, and future. Through a series of thought-provoking discussions, the 2018 Summit will:

  • Explore solutions to the obstacles and limitations that have kept us from realizing the full promise of personalized medicine to date, as well as emerging challenges we must overcome to continue advancing medicine and the marketplace

  • Celebrate the extraordinary achievements in innovation and collaboration that have led us to where we are now while looking ahead to promising new advances underway

  • Examine the complexities, trends, and opportunities of an evolving personalized medicine landscape driven by the convergence of science and technology, including implications for the future of business and policy in the field
     

What Makes the BPM Summit Unique?

Forums for discussing personalized medicine have focused, for the most part, on relatively specialized areas such as underlying technologies, financing, regulatory pathways, or payment issues. The BPM Summit attempts to address cross-sections of such issues with a clear eye toward modeling sustainable business models for all entities already engaged in personalized medicine as well as those that seek to enter the field. The BPM Summit aims to set itself apart from other conferences by focusing on the business challenges, trends, and opportunities within the personalized medicine industry, while also examining the potential implications for research and development and healthcare delivery.
