Emerging Screening & Diagnostic Tools to Facilitate Early Diagnosis of Disease

Genomics, genetics, proteomics, microbiome, sensors, functional imaging, and many other technologies are changing medicine especially in the way that patients are diagnosed and classified. This session will review many of these emerging technologies and how and when they should be incorporated into clinical practice.

Experts from oncology, neurology, endocrinology, and psychology will briefly discuss the latest advances in their field around the diagnosis. These short talks will be followed by a panel which will highlight similarities and difference in how diseases are diagnosed and managed, as well as commonalities and opportunities for alignment across specialties.
