Komen Scholar Dr. Bryan Schneider will discuss his work in personalized medicine — finding the right drug for the right person at the right time.
“My career is defined by a commitment to translational and clinical implementation of personalized medicine in cancer care. I am an Associate Professor of Medicine at the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center and serve as the Director of the IU Health Precision Genomics Program, which uses next generation sequencing to identify novel therapeutics for patients without standard therapeutic options. My time is devoted to caring for breast cancer patients as a Medical Oncologist and leading laboratory research work resulting in the identification of several biomarkers that predict which patients might suffer severe side effects from chemotherapy drugs before they ever receive the drug.”
