From Building Blocks to Blockbusters

Unlocking the secrets within our genetic code has given birth to the biological revolution which we are fortunate to be witnessing.

From an investment by an international consortium of around $3 billion and 10 years to sequence the first whole human genome to today – when it can be done for under $500 and in less than a day – can we dare to hope that this will soon translate into more targeted treatments for hitherto untreatable diseases, including many cancers?

Is it just a matter of time before we will all carry our genetic information in our smart phones or on smart cards?

Come and hear Dr Dusty Majumdar, CMO and Vice-President, IBM Watson Health give a Codex Talk:  Why is genomics becoming more relevant in cancer care and what is Watson’s role in delivering better outcomes for cancer patients?

Dr Dusty Majumdar will be speaking at the World’s Top 50 Innovators Series in London on 28 September. For further information click here.

A Codex Talk is a concise presentation, lasting 15 minutes (or less), in which the speaker addresses a challenging question faced by their technology or industry today and ends with a bold prediction for the future. 

Codex talks are engaging, entertaining and elucidating. They give the audience something they can walk away with: valuable insights, actionable information, fresh perspectives, and renewed optimism.
