M.D., Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Medicine (Oncology), Stanford

The major focus of Dr. Alizadeh’s research group is to attain a better understanding of the initiation, maintenance, and progression of lymphoid tumors, and their response to existing and novel therapies toward improving current treatment strategies. In this effort, they employ tools from functional genomics, computational biology, molecular genetics, and mouse models. They hope to apply this knowledge towards the design of clinical trials in the treatment of patients with lymphoma, leukemia, and myeloma.

 Session Abstract – PMWC 2022 Silicon Valley

Alzheimer’s disease is one of our nation’s most significant threats, with devastating impacts on patients and their families. This session will explore a new approach called neurodiagnostic therapies, a methodology fundamentally enabled by ultrasensitive biomarker measurements that allow visibility to neurological disease in individuals before they are symptomatic. This allows treatment to be administered at a more optimal stage, to improve therapeutic effectiveness and by extension, patient outcomes.

During this presentation, attendees will learn how this new approach can provide early treatment to ultimately accelerate disease detection and improve outcomes, in addition to creating viable and credible evidence for the healthcare system to adopt it with coverage to facilitate frictionless access.
