Pamela Bush, Chief Business Officer of Predictive Oncology, to discuss advancing pipelines and using patient heterogeneity with AI to solve the missing link in drug discovery
EAGAN, Minn., May 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Predictive Oncology, Inc. (NASDAQ: POAI) announced today that the company’s Chief Business Officer, Pamela Bush, Ph.D., MBA, will present at the upcoming 2023 BIO International Convention, in Boston, Massachusetts, on June 5, 2023, at 2:45 p.m. ET, Presentation Room 103. Dr. Bush will discuss the importance of addressing patient heterogeneity in drug discovery and the advantage of leveraging active machine learning in the process.
“Through our PEDAL platform, we can efficiently challenge a compound to demonstrate drug response within a set of heterogeneous tumor samples representing what the compound would encounter in a clinical trial. Thus, providing a leading indicator of clinical performance. The benefit to biopharma is that the outcome of a PEDAL campaign increases the probability of clinical success, mitigates risk and strengthens the pipeline,” said Dr. Bush.
As the first company to use primary patient samples paired with a highly developed active machine learning system to drive experimentation for more efficient drug discovery, Predictive Oncology incorporates wet-lab experiments in a CLIA-certified facility with a biobank of 150K tumor samples. Using the proprietary PEDAL platform, and tapping into the formulation and biologics capabilities in a GMP laboratory, the company is able to help small, medium and large biopharma companies make highly confident predictions that accelerate pipeline development and streamline the path from molecule to medicine.
Joining Dr. Bush will be key members of Predictive Oncology’s scientific and business leadership teams to discuss the full spectrum of the company’s powerful suite of drug discovery solutions, including biologics capabilities that streamline and optimize drug formulation. The Predictive Oncology team will be attending a number of important partnering meetings with biopharma and collaborators, and will be available for both scheduled and impromptu discussions throughout the conference.
Attendees are also invited to visit Booth 135 during BIO International’s exhibitor hospitality reception on Tuesday, June 6, from 5 to 6:30 p.m., for an opportunity to meet former NASA astronaut and current SVP of Biologics at Predictive Oncology, Larry DeLucas, Ph.D.
