RUTHERFORD, N.J., Oct. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cancer Genetics, Inc. (Nasdaq:CGIX) (“CGI” or “The Company”), a leader in enabling precision medicine for oncology through molecular markers and diagnostics, today announced it will be hosting a panel discussion focused on “The Convergence of Artificial Intelligence and Healthcare - New Developments in Precision Medicine” at this year's Dawson James Small Cap Growth Conference on October 18th in Jupiter, Florida. Panel participants will include Krishnan Nandabalan, Ph.D., President and CEO of InveniAI Corporation, Sundeep Bhan, co-founder and CEO of Prognos, George C. Carpenter IV, President and CEO of MYND Analytics, Inc., Evan Jones, Chairman and CEO of Opgen, Inc., and Karim Galil, MD, founder and CEO of Mendel.ai.
Hosted by Cancer Genetics’ President and CEO, Panna Sharma, the panelists will discuss how breakthrough Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning Engines are now being used to transform virtually all aspects of healthcare, from clinical trial matching to drug discovery, and from selecting novel combination therapies to predicting patient outcomes.
These emerging technologies, combined with state of the art genomic and biomarker data, can accelerate the adoption of precision medicine and improve patient outcomes while lowering costs.
Panna Sharma will also provide an update on Cancer Genetics’ initiative around Big Data and Artificial Intelligence and how the Company is partnering with other leaders to use artificial intelligence to help revolutionize how patients are matched with clinical trials. With less than 5% of patients with cancer participating in clinical trials, according to the National Cancer Institute, advances in Artificial Intelligence and other developments in precision medicine could not only fundamentally transform cancer care, but more importantly cancer development. Cancer Genetics is among the first clinical diagnostic companies to be able to augment the oncologist's decision-making by continuously matching the patient’s data with emerging clinical trials.
In addition, Mr. Sharma will provide an overview of the Company's business on October 19th with a live presentation and will also be available to participate in one-on-one meetings with investors who are registered to attend the conference.
