Aims: The aims of this session are to provide: an understanding of how molecular understanding of disease will lead to new therapeutics that are identified by pathway-specific diagnostics (asthma, lung cancer, CF etc); an understanding of responder/non-responder phenomenon with current drugs; convergence of multiple technologies ('omics, clinical data collections, epidemiology, therapeutic drug responses etc); application of a new way of conducting research that requires collaboration between clinicians, scientists and industry and ICT; and to see how such a health delivery model will improve cost effectiveness of treatment especially for biologics.
Application of 'omics to uncover novel disease pathways
