How are businesses across the health care and life sciences spectrum collaborating to capitalize on the commercial promise of personalized medicine? Find out at the 2020 Business of Personalized Medicine Summit — join us at Oyster Point in South San Francisco on Thursday, February 27th!
Since the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003, the genomic revolution has spurred immeasurable 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 medical and commercial potential of personalized medicine has turned out to be neither quick nor easy, we could finally be on the cusp of widespread clinical adoption and improved patient outcomes thanks to recent advances with CRISPR gene editing and targeted therapies as well as the digital transformation of the industry. In fact, in its latest report, Cancer Statistics, 2020, the American Cancer Society cites a 2.2% drop in the U.S. cancer death rate from 2016 to 2017 — the largest single-year drop ever recorded — and attributes it largely to the development of targeted therapies and other personalized medicines for the treatment of lung and skin cancers.
With this welcome news underscoring the real medical contributions of personalized medicine, this year’s Summit aims to explore whether the business community might also be on the verge of capitalizing on the field’s commercial promise and, if so, what that could mean for innovation, investment, profitability, and growth in the space moving forward.

What Makes the BPM Summit Unique?
Many forums for discussing personalized medicine focus on 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 towards modeling successful and sustainable business models for entities already engaged in personalized medicine as well as those that seek to enter the space. The BPM Summit aims to set itself apart from other programs by focusing on the business challenges, trends, and opportunities within the personalized medicine marketplace while keeping in mind the potential implications for R&D and healthcare delivery.
