Thursday, Nov 14, 10.45am – 11.45am │ Joseph B. Martin Conference Center
Day 2: Targeting Treatment
Panel: Prospecting the Pipeline: Exploring the Implications of a Biopharmaceutical Pipeline Dominated by Personalized Treatments
Panelist: Harpreet Singh, CEO Immatics
As researchers develop an enhanced understanding of the molecular causes that underpin various diseases, many biopharmaceutical companies have begun to develop therapies that are targeted to patient subgroups and even personalized to individual patients. In oncology, for example, there are reportedly more than 900 personalized “immunotherapy” treatments being tested in the clinic, with more than 1,000 in preclinical development. The challenging scientific questions and systemic implications associated with these new therapies do not always fit neatly into existing regulatory, payment, and care delivery frameworks.
During this session, CNBC Reporter Ms. Meg Tirrell will moderate a panel discussion that explores the scientific, regulatory, reimbursement, and other systemic issues associated with future gene editing treatments, gene therapies, immunotherapies, and targeted therapies. The panelists, who include industry representatives, a researcher, and an academic leader, will also consider a new approach to immunotherapy for cancer patients in which a unique product is developed for every patient treated.
