The latest episode of the free DDW podcast is out, “Precision medicine in the era of artificial intelligence”. It covers one narrated article of the same title written for DDW and read aloud by Megan Thomas.
It was written by Dr Lofti Chouchane and Dr Javaid Sheikh. Dr Chouchane is a professor in the departments of genetic medicine, and microbiology and immunology at Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar. Dr Sheikh is the Dean of Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar.
Precision medicine is an emerging model for the next generation of clinical care that will capitalise on the dynamic interaction between individual biology, lifestyle, behaviour, and environment. It holds huge promise for healthcare and the drug discovery sector in particular.
The two doctors discuss the value of biobanks, artificial intelligence and machine learning, as well as the challenges associated and what’s next for these technologies and processes.
