‘Where science meets business’ sessions complete the programme. An international group of speakers, representing major pharmaceutical and drug discovery companies, will examine the latest advances.
As well as the conference presentations and poster programme, there will be ample networking opportunities and a trade exhibition.
In treating inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), physicians can have a hard time telling which newly diagnosed patients have a high risk of severe inflammation or what therapies will be most effective. Now researchers report finding an epigenetic signature in patient cells that appears to predict inflammation risk in a serious type of IBD called Crohn’s disease.
