Bookmark and Share


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:
