Moffitt Cancer Center Showcases its Blueprint for Building a Best-in-Class Precision Medicine Program at PierianDx-hosted Webinar
by Josh Forsythe, on September 11, 2017
PierianDx, the forerunner in clinical genomic analysis, interpretation and reporting, will host a webinar featuring Moffitt Cancer Center’s journey to design a world-class precision medicine program.
The webinar, entitled Building a Best-in-Class Precision Medicine Program: The Moffitt Cancer Center Story, will discuss key components of building a precision medicine program, including innovative leadership, advanced technology, clinical education, and strategic partnerships. During this webinar, Dr. Anthony Magliocco, the Chair of Anatomic Pathology at Moffitt Cancer Center, will share the Moffitt success story – from its pioneering inception to being one of only 47 Comprehensive Cancer Centers as designated by the National Cancer Institute.
Dr. Magliocco will also discuss:
- Key variables that played an important part in Moffitt Cancer Center’s evolution of precision medicine
- The role that the state-of-the-art Morsani Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory played in that evolution
- Unexpected challenges and how they were addressed
- An in-depth review of what steps were taken to ensure that the patient comes first
“The Moffitt Cancer Center was one of PierianDx’s first customers and our teams have been extremely collaborative from the outset,” said PierianDx CEO Ted Briscoe. “The Moffitt story conveys both a strategic and executional blueprint of how precision medicine should be done – and it applies to cancer centers, academic medical centers and health systems alike.”
During the webinar PierianDx Chief Biomedical Informatics Officer Rakesh Nagarajan will highlight how Moffitt Cancer Center leveraged PierianDx’s Clinical Genomicist Workspace (CGW) platform, turnkey assays from its Gateway Lab Services, and validation and interpretation services to accelerate precision medicine and NGS testing.
“PierianDx has been a valued partner and integral to Moffitt’s overall approach to lead the market with the most advanced technology, enabling our molecular lab to be the cornerstone to our precision medicine initiatives,” said Magliocco.
