It requires a high level of dedication and collaboration from all the stakeholders. D., Vice President, Translational Sciences, Onc i Med, Astra Zeneca The increased usage of circulating tumor DNA (ct DNA) sequencing for oncology clinical research demonstrates a critical need for sensitive and specific testing.This presentation will share case studies and solutions for clinical development of precision therapies and for integration of multiplex diagnostics into development programs. While we have observed a high degree of concordance between single tumor mutations in tumor and plasma, several recent studies have highlighted a lack of concordance between plasma and tumor panel NGS gene panel testing due to biological and technical factors. He also serves as the Assistant Medical Director for the Anderson Emergency Center, the adult emergency department for Rhode Island Hospital, and responsible for over 106,000 patient visits annually, as the largest Level 1 Trauma Center for Southeastern New England. D., FACEP serves as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.In doing so, I have helped establish research partnerships between academic medical departments and agencies without a primary research mission, including the UCSD Student-Run Free Clinic Project, the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, and the American Camp Association.In doing so, I have been a speaker at the national level on evidence-based complementary and alternative medicine, novel methods of blinding in clinical investigation, and novel models for clinical care of the underserved.Alternative medicine — or fringe medicine — includes practices claimed to have the healing effects of medicine but which are disproven, unproven, impossible to prove, or are excessively harmful in relation to their effect; and where the scientific consensus is that the therapy does not, or can not, work because the known laws of nature are violated by its basic claims; or where it is considered so much worse than conventional treatment that it would be unethical to offer as treatment.

D., Vice President, Global Head Correlative Science, Novartis Pharmaceuticals Co-development of drugs and diagnostics as well as clinical integration of modern diagnostics remain challenging.
Alternative treatments are neither the same as experimental medicine, nor traditional medicine — although the latter, when used today may be considered alternative.
Alternative medicine has grown in popularity and is used by a significant percentage of the population in many countries.
For my work, I have received national recognition by such diverse entities as the Society for Acupuncture Research, the American Dental Association and the American Medical Student Association.
My training is in computer science, epidemiology and public health.
