GPC Genomic Databases Initiative Addresses Recommendations of Academy’s Biomarkers Report

A new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine aims to reduce key barriers to the development and clinical adoption of biomarker tests for molecularly targeted therapies. Included in the report are recommendations designed to facilitate rapid learning from patient experience through enhanced data-collection and data-sharing in one or more large public repositories that should be created. This would include the capture of biomarker test results linked with molecularly targeted therapies and clinical patient outcomes data in electronic health records.
