Webinar: AI in Precision Oncology - A Conversation with Genomate Experts

In the ever-evolving world of oncology, the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) and precision medicine shines as a beacon of hope for countless individuals battling cancer. But can AI transform the way oncologists treat patients?

Mark your calendars for an engaging webinar on August 30th, 2023, at 6:00 PM (EEST), as Genomate teams up with DrugBank to unravel the profound impact of AI on Precision Oncology. This webinar will provide clarity and a better understanding of the transformative potential of AI in cancer detection, treatment identification, and holistic patient care.

Webinar: Genomate and DrugBank in conversation

Guided by Chris Klinger, Scientific Support Lead at DrugBank, this webinar will feature a distinguished panel of experts from Genomate's team:

Together, they will delve into AI's profound impact on revolutionizing Precision Oncology's landscape. This webinar is an unmissable opportunity for those interested in the intersection of AI and healthcare. As precision medicine gains traction as the new norm, comprehending the pivotal role of AI becomes paramount. Whether you're a seasoned oncologist, a researcher, or an individual intrigued by how technology is reshaping cancer care, this dialogue promises invaluable insights.

As precision medicine continues its ascendancy, grasping the pivotal role of AI becomes indispensable. This discussion is an unparalleled opportunity to glean invaluable insights for oncologists, researchers, and individuals keen on understanding the dynamic fusion of technology and medical science. The importance of this conversation is not just limited to the medical community; for patients and caregivers, it signifies a beacon of hope—a future where treatment is tailored to individual needs, thereby enhancing the likelihood of success.

Dr. Istvan Petak, CEO & Founder of Genomate Health Inc, aptly encapsulates the significance of this intersection: "The nexus of biology, technology, and AI is where the future of oncology lies." With Genomate's revolutionary approach, patients benefit from treatment options intricately woven with their unique tumor profiles.

Genomate's AI-powered clinical decision support system analyzes the patient's molecular profile, including all their cancer cells' genetic alterations. By analyzing the patient's complete molecular profile, Genomate provides an in-depth report highlighting the most effective targeted therapies tailored to address the specific genetic drivers of the patient's cancer. Based on the cumulative score, the report helps the oncologist prioritize the driver genes to target and the best drugs to do it with. Armed with Genomate's comprehensive report, the oncologist gains valuable insights into the totality of the patient's genetic alterations. With the ability to rank the strength of different driver genes, the oncologist can prioritize the most impactful treatment options, ensuring the patient receives the best possible care.

We invite you to join our worthy panel in this exciting webinar. Bring your questions, curiosity, and enthusiasm to plunge into the realm of AI in precision oncology. Discover the future of cancer care and sign up to participate in the webinar by visiting the webinar registration link.
