PMWC 2025 Silicon Valley – February 5-7, 2025

The Precision Medicine World Conference (PMWC)

In a world grappling with a surge in chronic diseases, our approach to healthcare is evolving. The traditional model, addressing patients post-illness, is costly and lacks individualization. The existing medical care model frequently focuses on individuals only after they transition into patients, leading to elevated costs linked to treating chronic and advanced-stage illnesses. There is an emerging requirement for an interdisciplinary strategy to comprehend and manage diseases.

Next month’s PMWC January 24-26, 2024 Silicon Valley will cover structural variations (SV) which are the epicenter of change, exploring the synergy of multi-omics, AI, and precision health. The challenge in using advanced sequencing methods lies in relying on past databases for specific genetic variations. While this works well for some variations, it becomes complicated for SVs impacting certain traits, as only a fraction has been cataloged. This poses a challenge for clinicians dealing with patients exhibiting never-before-seen mutations. An exciting solution emerging is the use of multi-omics, providing additional confirmation to genomic theories. The integration of AI is poised to take this trend to the next level, promising further advancements in genetic understanding.

“Multi-omics & AI together have the potential to significantly accelerate the widespread use of ‘omics data in healthcare”, says Steve Turner, Founder of PacBio. He anticipates a transformative impact, merging multi-omics and AI for data interpretation. 2023’s rapid changes set the stage, with biology poised for a breakthrough akin to Large Language Models (LLMs).

Precision health is on the rise, driven by advancements in omics technologies and computational capabilities. Overcoming sequencing hurdles is crucial, and the exciting trend of using multi-omics for confirmation is gaining momentum. Turner states, “I am very excited as I am seeing two important trends that, both individually and together, are going to have a big impact in the next few years. I am talking about multi-omics and AI to help with the interpretation of all the data we have been – will continue – producing.”

Turner’s anticipation for PMWC 2024 Silicon Valley is fueled by the prospect of witnessing industry responses to transformative shifts, foreseeing AI tools predicting novel variant effects and ushering in a new healthcare era. He emphasizes the event’s significance, eager to learn how government and industry players are adapting to these changes. Next month’s PMWC conference promises to be thrilling, setting the stage for groundbreaking advancements and discussions.

Don’t miss the opportunity to shape the future of healthcare at PMWC January 24-26, 2024—a pivotal conference uniting experts, thought leaders and innovators to define the next era in healthcare through the intersections of multi-omics, AI, and precision health.

Key players are contributing to the program representing the various technological advancements and applications:
•    New Frontiers in Genomic Analysis & Interpretation – a panel discussion with Robert Sebra (ISMMS), Anshul Kundaje (Stanford University), Chaz Langelier (UCSF) and Orly Alter (Prism AI)

The Precision Medicine World Conference (PMWC)

We are thrilled to share some groundbreaking developments in the field of precision medicine with you. Two promising new drug candidates, Leqembi and Donanemab, have shown great potential in slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s disease, marking a significant step forward in tackling this challenging condition.

But this is just the beginning, and we must continue advancing the drug pipeline to develop the next class of drugs centered around the biology of aging to ultimately stop Alzheimer’s and related diseases in their tracks. The goal should be to address the various underlying pathologies of the disease through a precision medicine approach. Precision medicine not only benefits the patient but also the overall health systems. In addition, a precision approach to medicine is in the long run expected to help control the overall cost of health care.

A recently published PMC report showed that newly approved precision medicines in 2022 include 12 new entities and 5 newly approved gene and cell-based therapies bringing the total to 37 new molecular entities approved by the FDA’s CDER. Furthermore, 12 in vitro diagnostic testing applications that underpin precision medicine strategies were also approved or cleared for several new or expanded indications which help inform targeted treatment decisions to improve drug safety and efficacy. Some report highlights include:

• The 12 new entities represent ~34% of all newly approved therapeutic molecular entities, accounting now for at least a quarter of new drug approvals for each of the last eight years.

• The five new gene or cell-based therapies include treatments for beta thalassemia, hemophilia B, and cerebral adrenoleukodystrophy, resulting in a total of 13 FDA-approved gene or cell-based therapies to-date.

• Of the 17 new precision medicines 53% (N=9) are for cancer, 35% (N=6) for rare diseases, and 12% (N=2) for other disease treatments.

• 12 new in vitro diagnostic testing applications include three new blood-based biomarker tests to guide personalized oncology treatment decisions and several newly approved indications that will advance tumor-agnostic testing paradigms.

These new developments illustrate the importance of ensuring that our health systems are aligned with the latest science and technology so that we can deliver unprecedented benefits to both patients and health systems.

PMWC January 24-26, 2024 Silicon Valley, which will take place at the Santa Clara Convention Center, has designed the Emerging Therapeutics Track to cover critical aspects of new precision medicine developments. The focus will be on:

  • Gene & Cell Therapies for Rare Disease chaired by Yael Weiss (Mahzi Therapeutics) and Peter Marks (FDA)
  • Oncology Focused Gene Modified Cell Therapies chaired by Sharon Benzeno (Adaptive Biotechnologies),
  • Pharmacogenomics (PGx) chaired by Kelly Caudle (St. Jude Children’s Hospital)


These tracks will deep-dive into…

• why we must focus on the understanding of target/pathway biology to stop a disease in its track,

• why we must address underlying pathology drivers of a disease through a precision medicine approach, and

• why we need precision biomarkers to gain a deeper understanding of pharmacological response and possible drug-drug interactions, to decide on a treatment strategy, and to monitor drug response.

We are as excited as you to witness how recent progress in precision medicine and diagnostics continues to shape our approach to disease prevention and intervention and invite you all to join the next Precision Medicine World Conference, PMWC January 24-26, 2024, that brings stakeholders from across the industry together to engage in this important dialogue and influence the trajectory of modern health care.
