PLENARY KEYNOTE SESSION: Rx/Dx COLLABORATIONS: STRATEGIES FOR BRINGING TARGETED THERAPIES TO MARKET
Precision Medicine, What's So Difficult? The Interplay & Complexities of Pharmaceutical & Diagnostic Partnerships to Deliver the Promise of Precision Medicine
Numerous dynamic intricacies exist between pharmaceutical and diagnostic industries which require careful consideration when deploying precision medicine solutions. This, coupled with technological advances and an evolving regulatory landscape, results in significant complexity. From the push to try to incorporate precision medicine earlier in drug development, through commercialization, what are the potential opportunities as well as hurdles to overcome to enable more effective collaborations to deliver targeted therapies?
Rx/Dx Collaborations: Strategies for Bringing Targeted Therapies to Market
This session will explore challenges and strategies to discover and develop personalized medicines from the points of view of both the diagnostic and pharmaceutical industries.

PATIENT-CENTRIC DIGITAL INNOVATION
What Does Gold Standard Patient Engagement Look Like in a Digital Age?
This presentation will cover: 1) treating patients as equal partners when building digital health solutions by engaging them in the development from the start of the process, to ensure the solutions designed fit well into their lives; 2) leveraging the connection between technology and our partnership with patients, to drive innovation in the most meaningful areas to manage their disease; 3) enabling better outcomes for patients and supporting them in having a more positive experience during treatment.
Advancing Clinical and Translational Science through the Decentralization of Clinical Trials
An evolving trend in clinical and translational science has been their CT decentralization. The benefits are clear, the ability to decrease burden(s) to trial participants, improve recruitment and retention to enable interventions to succeed or fail faster without early termination, and offer more robust, rigorous medical evidence from broader demographics and diverse participants. This talk will discuss challenges and benefits in terms of existing NIH-funded efforts to advance.
The Business Case for Individual Engagement, Learnings across Industries
For online, direct-to-consumer services, user engagement is measured by frequency, timespan, and quality of interactions with an application which is often directly related to monetization, thus business metrics. In contrast, in healthcare and life science, purchase decisions are usually not made by the end user, so their engagement does not immediately relate to business KPIs. Is there still a business case for increasing individual engagement in the health industry?

DIGITAL TOOLS AND WEARABLES FOR REMOTE PATIENT MONITORING AND PRECISION MEDICINE
Wearables for Monitoring Health and Detecting Disease
Early detection of disease is crucial for early intervention. Nowhere is this more evident than in the detection of infectious disease. We have built a scalable real-time smartwatch-based alerting system for the early detection of aberrant physiological signals associated with early infection onset and other stressors. We also perform continuous glucose monitoring for detecting glucose dysregulation.
The Future of At Home Patient Monitoring and Care
The future of health and wellness lies in remote patient monitoring and digital health. By adapting to remote technology, industry leaders can aid in prevention, prediction and early detection. Throughout my presentation, I’ll discuss how remote patient monitoring can increase accessibility to healthcare, and how it is a critical first step toward tackling heart disease and improving overall vascular health.
Remote Monitoring for High-Risk Perinatal Conditions
Malama enables remote monitoring for high-risk perinatal conditions, beginning with diabetes in pregnancy which affects nearly 1 in 5 women globally. Malama's fully HIPAA compliant platform makes it easy for patients to track glucose data and receive actionable insights, and for providers to reduce likelihood of adverse events.

30th ANNIVERSARY OF TRI-CON PLENARY KEYNOTE SESSION: GENOMICS INNOVATION
Sequences, SynBio, and Sailing: Three Decades of Adventure with J. Craig Venter
Since his riveting publication on expressed sequence tags in 1991, which galvanized a revolution in genomics, J. Craig Venter has been a dominant figure in the world of genomics and biotechnology. As the first human to have his personal genome completely sequenced, and as the co-founder of Synthetic Genomics and Human Longevity, he is routinely one step ahead of his peers. As we celebrate 30 years of TRI-CON, we’re thrilled to host Dr. Venter who will discuss his life, his many accomplishments, and his vision for the future of precision medicine and the biotech industry.
30 Years of Genomics Innovation and the Future of Precision Medicine
Over the past three decades, genomic medicine has been transformed from a distant dream to a clinical reality. With patients suffering genetic diseases and cancer now cured thanks to advances in genomics, cell therapy, genome editing, and computing, the future is bright - but by no means assured. In this TRI-CON keynote panel, we discuss the scientific highlights of an extraordinary journey for practitioners of precision medicine and anticipate where the field is headed.

30th ANNIVERSARY OF TRI-CON PLENARY KEYNOTE SESSION: DIAGNOSTIC INDUSTRY TRENDS
Big Diagnostics: 30 Years of Impact
Healthcare depends on diagnostics. We all know that diagnostics is the glue that holds the healthcare together and that 70% of medical decisions are informed by a diagnostic - but does that say enough? More than 3.5 million people work in diagnostic industry. The number of companies is at an all-time high. COVID showed the world how valuable a test can be. But with all the changes of the last few years - there have been constants - the industry’s largest players. From the labs to manufacturers, from services to products, there are a few companies that have seen it all. In this panel, we talk to them about the good and bad, challenges and opportunities and most importantly, the impact of the last 30 years.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) AND MACHINE LEARNING (ML) FOR IN VITRO DIAGNOSTICS (IVDs)
Regulatory Science Approaches for Addressing Iterative Improvements in AI/ML-Enabled IVDs
The Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) for in vitro Diagnostics (IVDs) Working Group was established to address iterative improvements to AI/ML-enabled medical devices, including IVDs. This session will discuss the development of a regulatory framework to incorporate the use of Real-World Data (RWD) with the specific goals to develop a predetermined change control plan (PCCP) with templates for Software Pre-Specifications (SPS) and an Algorithm Change Protocol (ACP).
Fostering Responsible Innovation in AI/ML-Enabled IVDs
Experts from industry and FDA will discuss regulatory science tools aimed at supporting AI/ML-enable IVDs, including an Algorithm Change Protocol (ACP) and a Software Pre-Specifications (SPS) template along with a common glossary developed as part of MDIC’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) for in vitro Diagnostics (IVDs) Initiative. The discussion will include how these tools can facilitate and accelerate innovation in the application of AI/ML to IVDs.

DIGITAL PATHOLOGY IN DIAGNOSTICS AND PRECISION MEDICINE
Precision Pathology to Accelerate Precision Medicine
It’s crucial in this era of digitization to bring innovative devices, emerging products, and effective treatment to patients. Digitization is a required element for scalable and sustainable healthcare. Advancement in digital pathology, computational pathology, and artificial intelligence expand the network of brainpower for diagnostic, prognostic, and predictive pathology in precision medicine.
Computational Pathology: The Next Revolution in Cancer Diagnosis
The first companion diagnostic for oncology precision medicine was HER2 over 20 years ago using IHC and FISH. IHC is semiquantitative and poor at measuring spatial heterogeneity in tumors. We have developed a deep learning computational pathology method that scores HER2 and other IHC markers at low expression levels, quantitates expression of each cancer cell, and allows scoring of spatial heterogeneity of positive and negative cells. Application of this method called Quantitative Continuous Scoring of IHC better predicts response to ADCs.
