From August 20-22, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill, diagnostic professionals will have the opportunity to choose from 13 short courses and 7 concurrent tracks covering:

Point-of-Care Diagnostics

Cancer Molecular Markers to Guide Therapy

Molecular Diagnostics for Infectious Disease

Companion Diagnostics: From Biomarker Validation to Regulatory Approval

Commercialization of Molecular Diagnostics

Companion Diagnostics: Advancing Technologies and Winning Reimbursement

Molecular Profiling of Circulating Tumor Cells

This year's plenary keynote session will feature a discussion on perspectives on evaluating novel diagnostics for reimbursement.  The panel will be moderated by Andrew Fish of AdvaMedDx and will feature Elaine Jeter of Palmetto GBA, Aaron Bossler of University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics/AMP Economic Affairs Committee, Dwight Denham of Beckman Coulter, and Lee Newcomer of United Healthcare.

Attendees will also hear presentations from Dr. William Dalton of H.
