Smarticles: A New Class of Molecular Diagnostic
When: Tuesday, February 9, 2016 at 6 pm
Where: Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati – 650 Page Mill Road, Palo Alto, CA 94304
Multi-drug resistant organisms (MDROs) threaten modern medicine’s progress by making common infections fatal and dramatically increasing the risk of complications for many medical procedures such as surgery, transplants, and chemotherapy. To solve this problem a global call has been issued to develop new diagnostics that detect MDROs and measure antibiotic effectiveness fast enough to make time-critical clinical decisions. GeneWEAVE is using Smarticles(TM) technology to develop fast, simple, and smart diagnostics to aid healthcare providers in the fight against drug-resistant bacteria by enabling impactful surveillance programs, early therapy guidance, and successful antibiotic stewardship. This talk describes the Smarticles technology and tells the story behind GeneWEAVE.
