5th Annual Advances in Prenatal Molecular Diagnostics
2017-11-28 to 2017-11-29
Cambridge, MA, USA

Cell-free DNA-based screening and the potential for cell-based screening has upended the field of prenatal testing. While cell-free tests are being used more and more in the clinic, cell-based tests are still on the cusp of commercialization. With both types of tests still in need of improvements in order to truly replace invasive tests, the near-term challenge is determining where the field heads once both options are viable. This meeting will discuss updated comparisons and examine the implementation, insurance, and clinical challenges associated with each test. Furthermore, with advances in DNA amplification and sequencing comes greater opportunity to garner more information. Much discussion needs to take place in regards to the role of preconception counseling, expanded carrier screening, whole genome versus whole exome sequencing, and the effect these and any prenatal testing may have on the decision to continue a pregnancy or perform fetal therapy. link

3rd Annual Reproductive Genetic Diagnostics
2017-11-30 to 2017-12-01
Cambridge, MA, USA
Couples undergoing infertility treatments are more aware than ever of preimplantation genetic screening and diagnosis, yet patients and practitioners alike are still struggling with understanding the technologies being used, their capabilities and limitations, and their clinical, legal, and ethical implications. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Third Annual Reproductive Genetic Diagnostics conference aims to highlight a number of technologies and their differences, as well as how effective they are at uncovering a variety of genetic abnormalities. Considerations for mosaic embryos, biopsy techniques, and genetic counseling will also be discussed. Special attention will be paid to expanded carrier screening, its role in the direct-to-consumer market, and the potential for other molecular tests for infertility and implantation failure. Future directions for the role of gene editing and non-invasive embryo diagnostics will also be discussed. link

2017-12-05 to 2017-12-07
San Diego, USA

Cambridge Healthtech Institute's Inaugural ImPACT: Immunotherapy Progress and Clinical Treatments, being held December 5-7, 2017 in San Diego, four cutting-edge conferences will showcase what’s coming next in immunotherapy. With the approval of drugs like Nivolumab and Pembrolizumab patients are already feeling the impact of cancer immunotherapy. Still, with each step forward researchers are becoming increasingly aware of the complexity and unique challenges that come with each individual’s disease. Given that not all patients respond to existing treatments, there is an enormous need to start looking at the next generation of immunotherapy solutions. link
