SMi’s 5th Annual Molecular Diagnostics Conference 2018 Agenda Released
SMi proudly presents its 5th annual conference on Molecular Diagnostics, taking place at the Holiday Inn Kensington Forum, London, UK on 9th and 10th July 2018, with a half-day post-conference workshops on 11th July 2018.
The conference will focus on evaluating the future of diagnostics for rapid detection and improved clinical outcomes. Event highlights include the analysis of the latest developments in companion diagnostics and discussing the new European In Vitro Diagnostics Regulations. The event will also assess opportunities and novel diagnostic technologies at the point of care, as well as exploring the role of molecular diagnosis in the development of personalised medicine.
Hugues Malonne the Director General, DG Post Autorisation at Federal Agency for Medicines and Health Products based in Belgium will be chairing for the two-day conference.
Hugues will also be giving a presentation on A National Competent Authority’s perspective on IVDR implementation, where he will be discussing what we can do to support the transition to IVDR and how we can structure ourselves to address the upcoming challenges.

Benjamin A.Garcia, PhD, an expert in quantitative proteomics and Presidential Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, has been awarded the Biemann Medal by the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS). The early-career award recognizes significant achievement in basic or applied mass spectrometry.
Targeting Epigenetic Proteins to Prevent Breast CancerNews
Researchers have discovered that epigenetic proteins promote the proliferation of mammary gland stem cells in response to the sex hormone progesterone. The study suggests that inhibiting these proteins with drugs could prevent the development of breast cancer in women at high risk of the disease.READ MORE
