6:30 pm – Startup Spotlight:

Geneoscopy – Elizabeth M Wurtzler Ph.D.

Geneoscopy is developing an accurate, noninvasive, stool-based, preventive colorectal cancer screening test to solve the issues associated with existing screening methodologies. In 2017, 135,000 patients will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer and over 49,000 patients will die from the disease, making colorectal cancer the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths. Colorectal cancer’s high mortality rate is due to flaws in existing methodologies to screen for the disease. Although colonoscopies are the gold standard for detection, they require patients to take time off work, receive extensive bowel preparation, and undergo general anesthesia, so they are avoided. The most accurate noninvasive test (FIT-DNA) has a sensitivity of only 42% for adenomas; a significant reduction from the diagnostic accuracy of a colonoscopy. Geneoscopy’s test will improve compliance with screening, reduce late-stage diagnoses and lower morbidity and mortality associated with the disease.

6:45 pm – HIPAA What’s Old, What’s New, What’s Next
