In this subsession during the Innovation for Health conference in Rotterdam, different speakers from clinical, research and industry perspective will shine their light on how companion diagnostics play a crucial role in personalised medicine.
Companion diagnostics are an indispensable tool for optimum application of Personalized Medicine: they allow tests to determine the molecular causes of a disease before treatment has started and can predict the patient response of the treatment. However, thus far the development of companion diagnostics has been highly time-consuming and costly, so at present it is only used in the context of very few treatments.
The Interreg project Codex4SMEs (Companion diagnostics expedited for small and medium-sized businesses) project plans to improve healthcare by enhanced adoption of Personalized Medicine in North-West Europe.
The objective is to establish a network, which supports SMEs along the value chain of Companion diagnostics (Cdx) development. Within this network companies get access to sample access service, biomarker validation service, knowledge transfer service of biomarker/biobanking, transnational roadshow to venture and large pharma companies, business model and expert access service for business growth and scaling and tailored support dependent from the product TRL levels of the SMEs.
