How Bioscience and DNA targeted medicine development is changing
GSKs new strategy has a strong focus on growing an understanding of the role the immune system plays in human disease as well as leveraging the increasingly large amount of human genetic and gnomic information to identify novel targets
2“Science x Technology x culture = Next generation of medicines for patients” is GSKs new approach to R&D as introduced by the newly appointed Chief Scientific Officer and President of R&D, Hal Barron. Hal has joined GSK from the google backed biotech company Calico. The new strategy has a strong focus on growing an understanding of the role the immune system plays in human disease as well as leveraging the increasingly large amount of human genetic and gnomic information to identify novel targets and powerful medicines. As part of this GSK has teamed up with “23 and me” to leverage genetic insight for the development of these new novel medicines.
The talk will include an oversight of the following:
- A new approach to medicines development focusing on immunology and genomic information
- What the impact of this new approach to medicines development has on drug delivery
- New technologies in medical device development
- Considering the patient perspective in the future of at home treatment
