Accelerating Precision Medicine Using ORIEN Avatar
We will describe the ORIEN Avatar system of aggregated clinical and genomic data. We will present examples of using the Avatar system to accelerate biomarker-driven clinical trials, prioritize indications for I/O therapy, develop a synthetic control arm for a CAR-T trial, and use real world data to investigate drug safety.
