All those interested in learning more about biomarkers in psychiatry are invited to join.
Dr. Lombard will present a session about the importance of biomarkers in psychiatry, and the clinical application and benefits provided by Genomind's Genecept Assay. The Assay is a simple to use, saliva-based test which analyzes a patient's genetic make-up to help inform clinician treatment decisions for difficult to treat patients with psychiatric diagnoses. Dr. Lombard will discuss the proprietary 10 gene panel, and share the results from recent case studies to show how other clinicians are using the Assay in their practices.
A hallmark of Genomind's commitment to discovery, product development, and improvement of patient outcomes is education. This webinar will not only update clinicians on the latest research in their field, but also give them the information they need to implement the Genecept Assay into their own practices.
