The Personalized Medicine Insider - 2015 Industry Highlights
The year kicked off with the U.S. Presidential announcement on the Precision Medicine Initiative, which promises to provide further support to our clients in their effort to improve patient care and quality of life. We have also seen several new immunotherapy drugs that use the power of the immune system to battle cancer, and other serious diseases, get approved. Big data, genomics and healthcare IT have had yet another year of exponential growth with improved treatment, more precise medicine, increased profit margins, and reduced costs and inefficiencies.
This year, our mission to "change the future of medicine" has not only been applied to the relationships we have with our clients, but has greatly extended to the community at large. We are proud to announce that our team has raised over $40k this year to fight Breast Cancer, ALS and other healthcare initiatives!
All of our collective efforts are making a significant impact as shown in the 2016 California Life Sciences Association Report. The report highlights the industry as an economic engine that is "alive and well" and "thriving through collaboration, innovation, investment and access to resources in academia and the workforce."
As we close out 2015, we feel incredibly fortunate to have worked with innovators every day in solving some of the biggest issues in healthcare. From all of us at Toft Group Executive Search, we wish you happy holidays and warm wishes in the new year.
President & CEO, Toft Group Executive Search
