Precision Medicine: Concepts, Methods and Clinical Implementation
Fernando Vidal-Vanaclocha, MD, PhD, Professor, Molecular Medicine, George Washington Univ School of Medicine and Health Sciences,Washington, DC
Precision Medicine is an emerging model of healthcare delivery that holds tremendous potential for improving diagnoses and outcomes and monitoring of patients. However, there remain
important challenges to its clinical implementation that need attention.
Persona Biomed Inc. offers a Continuing Medical Education course on Precision Medicine for
physicians and healthcare providers.
The course is organized in various locations around the world for a 3-5-day period (20 hours) to physicians with interest in Precision Medicine.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES AND OUTCOMES
- Precision Medicine models of healthcare
- Clinical use and interpretation of LDTs for enhanced diagnosis and therapy of
- Laboratory and information technologies and their regulatory environments in
- Precision Medicine business models, marketing, commercialization and
- Concepts and main ethical, legal, economic, social and operational issues around how molecular biomarkers, genomic data, aggregated clinical data, and patient-reported data are being brought to bear on predicting disease susceptibility, refining diagnoses and personalizing treatments.
Theme 1. Background and New Trends in Precision Medicine
- Concepts and methods of Molecular Medicine.
- § Signature genes and molecules to each patient’s mechanism of disease and response to environmental factors, food and drugs.
- Translating genomic data into clinical practice for healthcare improvement
- Complementary and companion diagnostic tests tailoring diagnosis and therapy to each patient.
Theme 2. Precision Medicine Adoption, Regulation and Outcome’s Monitoring
- Healthcare organization models of Precision Medicine, costeffectiveness and metrics.

- § Marketing and commercialization models; reimbursement/non-reimbursement markets.
- The economic models of Precision Medicine, including sustainable and scalable business.
- Blockchain technologies in the logistical management of Precision Medicine data.
Theme 4. Clinical Case Studies in Precision Internal Medicine
- Clinical cases on immune-inflammatory, endocrine-metabolic, and neurodegenerative disorders will be used.
- LDTs identifying changes that occur at key pathogenic pathways of the patients will help to tailor diagnosis and therapy to each patient’s disease using molecular and genetic
Theme 5. Clinical Case Studies in Precision Cancer Medicine
- Most prevalent malignancies in lung, colorectal, breast, prostate and skin will be used to show how molecular biomarkers and genomic data from the tumor and the tumor microenvironment are associated with aggregated pathophysiological data to refine diagnosis and personalize
