The ACI Biomarker Utilisation & Commercialisation conference will take place on the 10th & 11th September in London. The event will explore the value of biomarkers from both a clinical and commercial perspective.

The aim of the event is to help end-users to develop a comprehensive strategy for biomarker discovery, development, application and analysis in clinical trials.
Attendees will get to meet renowned experts in biomarkers to discuss and debate key issues. All this takes place in a friendly environment designed to encourage networking between participants.

Topics on the agenda:
Benefit from an instructive two-day programme that explores a range of clinical and commercial factors affecting decision-makers in the world of biomarkers, combined with the opportunity for interaction with key opinion leaders.

Presentation Topics Include:
* Creating and Capturing Value with Biomarkers.
* Innovative Commercialisation of Companion Diagnostic Solutions 
* The Use of Human Genetics to Identify Novel Biomarkers for Clinical Trials
* Biomarker Discovery to Diagnostic Development: What are the Challenges? 
* Applying Imaging Biomarkers to Reduce Risk in Drug Development 
* Intellectual Property Protection for Biomarker Utilisation 
* Biomarkers in Personalised Medicine: From Discovery to Repositioning 
* Statistical Innovations in Biomarker Utilisation

Confirmed speaker companies include:
* Teva * Pfizer * Bayer Schering Pharma * Roche Diagnostics * Actelion * Comprehensive Biomarker Center GmbH * TNO * Biogerontology Research Foundation * Eisai * Westminster Genomic Services * Harrison Goddard Foote LLP * Cambridge Consultants * University College Dublin * Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA) * Medimmune * University College Dublin * Imanova *

‘Smelling’ Prostate Cancer
A research team from the University of Liverpool and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) has reached an important milestone towards creating a urine diagnostic test for prostate cancer that could mean that invasive diagnostic procedures that men currently undergo eventually become a thing of the past.
Criminal Justice Alcohol Program Linked to Decreased Mortality
Institute has announced that in the criminal justice alcohol program deaths dropped by 4.2 percent over six years.
Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism
Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.
Individuals' Medical Histories Predicted by their Noncoding Genomes
Researchers have found that analyzing mutations in regions of the genome that control genes can predict medical conditions such as hypertension, narcolepsy and heart problems.
'Molecular Movie' Opens Door to New Cancer Treatments
An international team of scientists led by the University of Liverpool has produced a 'structural movie' revealing the step-by-step creation of an important naturally occurring chemical in the body that plays a role in some cancers.
Advancing Synthetic Biology
Living systems rely on a dizzying variety of chemical reactions essential to development and survival. Most of these involve a specialized class of protein molecules — the enzymes.
Preparing for Potential Zika Outbreaks
Experts at the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID) are developing tools to monitor the spread of the Zika virus and are conducting research to gather more solid data to better assess the risks associated with the infection.
What do Banana Peels and Human Skin Have in Common?
Human skin and banana peels have something in common: they produce the same enzyme when attacked. By studying fruit, researchers have come up with an accurate method for diagnosing the stages of this form of skin cancer.
Biomarker for Recurring HPV-Linked Oropharyngeal Cancers
A look-back analysis of HPV infection antibodies in patients treated for oropharyngeal (mouth and throat) cancers linked to HPV infection suggests at least one of the antibodies could be useful in identifying those at risk for a recurrence of the cancer, say scientists at the Johns Hopkins University.
Counting Cancer-busting Oxygen Molecules
Researchers from the Centre for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP), an Australian Research Centre of Excellence, have shown that nanoparticles used in combination with X-rays, are a viable method for killing cancer cells deep within the living body.
