Biomarker discovery: Driving technologies

28 Feb 2013 - 28 Feb 2013 - London, UK

Bookmark and Share

Biomarkers identifying biological and physiological entities associated with disease are taking an increasingly important place at the tables of drug discovery and personalised medicine. Their discovery in biosamples requires the combined use of genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics platforms. Whilst for their application, robust techniques combining exquisite sensitivity and specificity must be developed. This conference is focused on technologies that are driving advances in this area and their application at gene and expression level in solid and fluid biosamples.  As such this conference is targeted to provide leading edge information to researchers within the academic, biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors. 

We include a panel session in this event, so that delegates can discuss their work directly with a panel of experts.

This event has CPD accreditation
