Tissue Phenomics™: From Biomarker Discovery to Clinical Diagnostic Assay Commercialization, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - September 08, 2014) - In this webinar, Dr. Thomas Nifong, Executive Vice President of Diagnostic Tests at Definiens, will be providing an overview of Tissue Phenomics™ and how the platform supports improved biomarker discovery on through to clinical diagnostic assay commercialization. There will be two live broadcasts on Tuesday, September 23rd, at 1pm BST (UK/ GMT +1), and at 1pm EDT (NA).

Tissue Phenomics™ is the big data approach to biomarker discovery and clinical diagnostic assay development in oncology. Through the utilization of the revolutionary Cognition Network Technology®, invented by Nobel Laureate and Definiens founder, Dr. Gerd Binnig, Tissue Phenomics™ enables the datafication of tissue images for robust data mining and correlation of tissue structures and cells with genomic data and patient demographics. The end result is:

  • The discovery, development, and validation of better biomarkers for companion diagnostics in cancer
  • The design and implementation of smaller, more conclusive clinical trials that demonstrate medical value of cancer treatments
  • The improvement of sample selection for molecular diagnostic tests for greater test sensitivity

Dr. Thomas Nifong will spend time walking through real-world examples that demonstrate the impact of Tissue Phenomics™ in discovery, clinical trials, and clinical diagnostics development and commercialization.
