Innovation, collaboration, and competition: Highlights from PMWC 2024

pmwc recap blog

We recently had the privilege of hosting a booth and speaking in the Precision Medicine World Conference (PMWC) 2024, an event that stands at the intersection of technology, medicine, and research. This gathering of the minds is where the future of healthcare is debated, shaped, and set into motion. Our team returned invigorated by the discussions, collaborations, and insights that PMWC fostered, reflecting a shared ambition to redefine the boundaries of personalised medicine. In this recap, we share three pivotal insights that resonated with us and will continue to shape our vision for the future of precision medicine.

1. The rising tide of precision medicine

The precision medicine market is experiencing an unmistakable surge. Conversations at the conference went beyond trial data and R&D, exploring the complexities of scaling precision medicine technologies for the post-market world. A standout session chaired by Morten Sogaard, featuring insights from Pooja Agarwal, David Kirn, MD, Adrian Veres, and Thomas Wechsler, examined the manufacturing complexities associated with precision medicine. This session showcased the collaborative efforts required to navigate the challenges of bringing these advanced therapies to patients worldwide, and highlighted the industry's readiness to embrace the future of healthcare.

2. Prioritising the patient experience

A recurring theme at PMWC 2024 was the emphasis on patient experience in the realm of clinical trials. This continued shift towards patient-centric approaches signifies a transformative phase in healthcare, where individuals are not just subjects but active participants in their treatment journeys. Engaging discussions with Jorge Gottheil from GRAIL, Masayuki Kotoku from Akros Pharma Inc., and Fang He from Amgen shed light on innovative strategies to enhance patient involvement in clinical trials. These conversations were a testament to the industry's commitment to making healthcare more responsive, empathetic, and effective for patients.

3. Driving competition and collaboration

While the precision medicine industry is known for its collaborative spirit, a healthy dose of competition adds a little excitement to the mix. This was evident at our booth, where a buzz wire game asking “Are you wired for precision?” became a focal point of friendly competition among attendees. With an iPad on the line, PMWC attendees showcased their skills, vying for the top spot, which was ultimately clinched with an impressive time of 8.08 seconds. The game, despite its playful nature, served as a metaphor for the meticulous and steady hand needed in precision medicine, all while fostering camaraderie among the PMWC community.


Reflecting on our experience at PMWC 2024, we are more inspired than ever to continue our work at the cutting edge of precision medicine. As we move ahead, we're excited to build on the relationships and ideas cultivated at PMWC to enhance our contributions to precision medicine. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all the participants, speakers, and organisers of PMWC 2024 for a truly remarkable event.
