AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Does data from deep sequencing tumors (personalized medicine) allow for targeted treatment and better survival of patients?

1. Divide "cancer" into multiple classes (ie breast, lung, pancreatic, etc.) and sequence tumors from 50-100 patients undergoing treatment. As with breast cancer, identify markers aligning with specific treatments and outcomes.

2. Perform the "clinical" trial. Use the deep sequencing as a diagnostic to aid in planning the treatment for a set of 50-100 patients for a given type of cancer. Track the outcomes: survival time, length of remission, effectiveness of treatment, etc. Use data to revise.
