April 12, 2016

In this video, AGA Tech Summit keynote speaker Mara Aspinall explains how personalized medicine will make its mark in GI.

At the 2016 AGA Tech Summit, one hot topic was personalized medicine and its impact in the GI space. According to the summit’s keynote speaker and genomics expert, Mara Aspinall, gastroenterology is just beginning to use personalized medicine by using metabolites of gut microbiota and patient biomarkers to subtype disease and aid treatment.

The nature of this kind of medicine is data driven and requires gastroenterologists to work together to accumulate data to analyze on a large scale, said Ms. Aspinall in this video interview from the AGA Tech Summit, which is sponsored by the AGA Center for GI Innovation and Technology.
