Oncology Leaders' Forum

05 Nov 2012 - 07 Nov 2012 - Boston, USA

Bookmark and Share

The Oncology Leaders Forum 2012 (5-7 November, at The Seaport, Boston, MA) will bring together senior level decision makers spearheading the pathway of novel cancer therapeutics.  Make sure you are present to benefit from the experiences of those in the know discussing issues including:

Biomarkers – why is it difficult to identify and validate predictive biomarkers

Companion diagnostics – how to stratify populations with a prototype diagnostic?

Novel clinical end points – Using biomarkers to define statistical end points

Haematological oncology – are there lessons to be learnt between solid tumour and haematological cancers?
