Advances in Research Conference: Precision Medicine in Renal Diseases

Course Description

Precision medicine is defined as tailoring of medical treatment to the individual characteristics of each patient. It does not mean creating drugs or medical devices that are unique to a patient. Instead, it is the practice of dividing individuals into subpopulations that differ in their susceptibility to diseases, their disease prognosis, and their response to treatments. To perform personalized medicine in nephrology, we have to move to a molecular-based disease classification, which enables us to define the mechanism of renal damage. This will subsequently allow us to develop and test targeted therapies. The Advances in Research Conference presents the critical advances in molecular and clinical medicine essential to implement this approach. The conference covers technologies that can illuminate comprehensive genetic, molecular, structural, and clinical aspects of diseases. Strategies to integrate these multi-scalar data sets to define the mechanisms cutting across these knowledge domains are discussed. Finally, experts present innovative approaches to apply this knowledge in novel clinical trials, aligning the efforts across multiple stakeholders.

Course Objective(s)

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to: 1) describe strategies to generate knowledge of renal disease processes along the genotype-phenotype continuum; 2) discuss emerging technologies of data integration across disciplines; 3) explain implementation of this approach across multiple cohort studies in nephrology; and, 4) envision the next steps to test the precision medicine concept using innovative clinical trial designs.
