Personalize My Medicine is proud to announce a partnership with Raremark!

Personalize My Medicine is partnerning with Raremark!
Raremark keeps families updated with the latest research and treatments in development, and enables them to share their valuable experience to help others. We also help people affected by a rare disease be heard by the people developing new treatments. Our aim is to bring the voice of the community into the development of new medicines, so they are produced with families in mind. Find out more at www.raremark.com
 
New Tool!
In a recent survey conducted by Raremark with people affected by a rare disease, 94% of participants said they would share their data to help others. Raremark has built a new tool that helps families share their valuable real-world experience which can help to speed up drug development. To sign up and start sharing your experience in rare disease in on of our nine rare disease communities, click here. We are adding new communities every month.

Biomarkers form a pivotal role in drug development today and as biomarkers become integrated into drug development and clinical trials, quality assurance and in particular assay validation becomes essential. There is a need for standardised guidelines for analytical methods used in biomarker measurements. Also, new biomarkers used for both the development and use of therapeutics are dependent on the establishment of a solid validation process that addresses technology integration and method validation as well as regulatory pathways for efficient biomarker development. The webinar focuses on the scientific and regulatory considerations for the analytical validation of assays in clinical trials. It will also address recent regulatory updates and the standardisation of validation procedures for efficient biomarker development.

Benefits to attending the webinar:

  • Advance your knowledge on Scientific and Regulatory Considerations for Biomarker validation
  • Boost your understanding of Analytical Validation of Assays Used in the Clinical Qualification of Biomarkers

Personalize My Medicine is proud to be partnering with FindACure!

Personalize My Medicine is partnering with FindACure!

 

Findacure is a UK charity that builds the rare diseases community to drive research and develop treatments.
Rare diseases are defined in the EU as conditions affecting less than 1 in 2000 people — though they come much rarer than this. Because of their small patient populations, rare diseases are often assumed to be unimportant. This leads to a lack of support for patients and families, neglect by the medical profession, and little ongoing research into treatments. Findacure is here to help. We empower rare disease patient groups through a series of training programmes, and encourage collaboration between rare disease stakeholders to advance research.
