Work is underway to create a collaborative virtual research institute (VRI) to support the fundamental research and subsequent clinical translation of precision medicine in Abu Dhabi, as well as the United Arab Emirates more broadly. Here, European Pharmaceutical Review’s Hannah Balfour discusses the project with the Head of the new…
Northwestern Medicine scientists have identified a drug, abemaciclib, that inhibits growth of the most aggressive meningiomas and identified a way to predict recurrence more accurately.
Targeting medicines against the genetic and molecular drivers of lung, breast and other tumours has helped transform cancer care for many patients, yet precision medicine for complex chronic diseases has lagged behind. Maria Orr, Adam Platt and Ben Challis, from BioPharmaceuticals R&D at AstraZeneca, explain why this is changing for…
