Pathologists and clinical lab executives will hear perspectives from 80 speakers at the upcoming Executive War College on Lab and Pathology Management

For any pathologist or clinical laboratory executive interested in the future of the lab testing industry, there will be plenty of insights at the upcoming 15th Annual Executive War College on Laboratory and Pathology Management April 27-28 at the New Orleans Sheraton Hotel.  Leading a line-up of 80 speakers are David King, CEO of Laboratory Corporation of America (NYSE: LH) and Thomas Grogan, M.D., Founder and Chief Scientific Advisor of Roche Ventana Medical Systems.

There’s lots of optimism about the future of laboratory testing. That’s because genetic and molecular testing is giving pathologists new tools to more precisely diagnose disease and determine appropriate therapies. LabCorp’s David King, will speak to how lab test data is the linchpin in the drive to more tightly integrate clinical care in ways to lift patient outcomes.

Executive War College 2010 will have over 80 presenters.

On the topics of personalized medicine and companion diagnostics Ventana Medical’s Thomas Grogan, M.D., will discuss the likely shapes and forms of next generation genetic testing and molecular diagnostics. Expect insights about how the pharmaceutical industry may stake out a position in biomarkers to control companion diagnostics that are linked to their therapeutic drugs.

Following King and Grogan during this same session will be Ajit Singh, Ph.D., CEO of BioImagene, Inc., the digital pathology company based in Sunnyvale, California. Singh will address how the combination of digital imaging and genetic testing will transform anatomic pathology. Closing out this special session is Mark Chandler, Ph.D., CEO of BioPhysical Corporation of Austin, Texas. Chandler’s forte is multiplex testing technologies and he will have plenty to say on how multi-analyte diagnostics will “bend the care curve,” contributing to improved diagnostic precision at dramatically lower cost.

Complementing this special session on the future for pathology and clinical laboratory testing will be more than 80 presentations by laboratory professionals, IVD executives, consultants, and healthcare thought leaders. Topics range from best practices in laboratory automation and new histology work flow solutions to latest developments in managed care contracting for lab testing and first details about how the new federal health law will affect the laboratory testing industry. Clinical Laboratory professionals from more than 10 countries are already registered to attend this year’s Executive War College.
