GTC is proud to present the 2nd Inflammatory & Immunological Biomarkers as part of our Biomarker Summit 2013, to be held on March 20-22, 2013 in San Francisco, California. This conference will discuss a wide range of issues in the biomarker field specific to inflammatory and immunological therapeutic areas. Topics such as novel approaches to biomarker discovery, enabling technologies, regulatory and reimbursement trends and the development of companion diagnostics will be discussed. Specific disease areas include cardiovascular disease, metabolic diseases, arthritis, autoimmune diseases, kidney / renal disease and inflammatory bowel disease. These areas will be addressed in an intimate and highly interactive environment with perspectives from industry, academia and the public sector. Below is an agenda outline for this conference:

Sorting Through Cellular Statistics
Aaron Dinner, professor in chemistry, and his graduate student Herman Gudjonson are trying to read the manual of life, DNA, as part of the Dinner group’s research into bioinformatics—the application of statistics to biological research.
Women’s Immune System Genes Operate Differently from Men’s
A new technology reveals that immune system genes switch on and off differently in women and men, and the source of that variation is not primarily in the DNA.
Experimental MERS Vaccine Shows Promise in Animal Studies
A two-step regimen of experimental vaccines against Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) prompted immune responses in mice and rhesus macaques, report National Institutes of Health scientists who designed the vaccines.
HIV Susceptibility Linked to Little-Understood Immune Cell Class
High levels of diversity among immune cells called natural killer cells may strongly predispose people to infection by HIV, and may be driven by prior viral exposures, according to a new study.
New Weapon in the Fight Against Blood Cancer
This strategy, which uses patients’ own immune cells, genetically engineered to target tumors, has shown significant success against multiple myeloma, a cancer of the plasma cells that is largely incurable.
Scientists Create CRISPR/Cas9 Knock-In Mutations in Human T Cells
In a project spearheaded by investigators at UC San Francisco, scientists have devised a new strategy to precisely modify human T cells using the genome-editing system known as CRISPR/Cas9.
Researchers Develop Vaccine that Protects Primates Against Ebola
A collaborative team from The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston and the National Institutes of Health have developed an inhalable vaccine that protects primates against Ebola.
