New York, NY (PRWEB) December 14, 2012

As high tech and medical research converge, game changing developments in genomics are transforming cancer treatment forever.

A leader paving the way to this significant healthcare development through his work with DNA sequencing is Ronnie Andrews, President, Medical Sciences for Life Technologies. Attendees of the Digital Health Summit at the 2013 International CES® will have the unique opportunity to hear from Andrews, who will deliver the Keynote Luncheon Session: Cancer Treatment: The Next Frontier, at12:50 p.m. on Wednesday, January 9, at the LVCC North Hall, N250. Owned and produced by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the 2013 CES will occur January 8-11, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“Personalized medicine is here,” said Jill Gilbert, Digital Health Summit Producer. “Not only will it let us create a treatment tailored to your specific genetic composition, but it will soon expand beyond oncology and the Digital Health Summit is the ideal forum to showcase that significant impact.”

“The entire face of cancer is changing with this reality,” said Andrews. “Cancer is not just one disease; each case is unique. We want to treat an individual´s cancer at the molecular level. We are rapidly making progress to ultimately create the Google map of the cell, allowing us to identify the key molecular drivers of an individual cancer and prescribe treatments accordingly, ultimately leading to significantly improved patient care.”

Moving from body to brain, following Andrews is Dr. Gregory Bayer, CEO, Brain Resource. Dr. Bayer will present a keynote: This Is Your Brain on Tech, at 2:05 p.m. on Wednesday, January 9. He will discuss the new generation of online technologies and methodologies that are transforming brain health: from improving cognitive function and reducing stress to the management of ADHD and the prediction of effective treatment for Depression.

“Our proprietary international brain database, the largest of its kind in the world, has enabled us to develop scalable products, such as MyBrainSolutions.com, that are at the forefront of the Digital Health Industry,” said Bayer.
