9th Annual Biomarkers Congress 2014

  • Conference Call
  • Oxford Global Con­fer­ences Ltd are proud to present the 9th Annual Bio­mark­ers Con­gress 2014, tak­ing place on 25 & 26 Feb­ru­ary 2014 in Man­ches­ter, United King­dom.

    The increas­ing inter­est in bio­marker dis­cov­ery in recent years has pushed bio­marker research into the fore­ground of the mod­ern phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal indus­try. New iden­ti­fi­ca­tion tech­nolo­gies have both widened the scope of bio­marker research and under­lined the need for robust val­i­da­tion, improved pre­dic­tive value and the clear demon­stra­tion of clin­i­cal relevance.

    The Bio­mark­ers Con­gress will cover the lat­est advances in bio­marker dis­cov­ery and ver­i­fi­ca­tion, includ­ing mass cytom­e­try, selected reac­tion mon­i­tor­ing and chem­i­cal genetics.

    Our expert speak­ers will also dis­cuss efforts to increase bio­marker sen­si­tiv­ity and speci­ficity through genomic analy­sis, infor­mat­ics approaches and bet­ter sam­ple man­age­ment. In the Com­pan­ion Diag­nos­tics stream, pre­sen­ta­tions will cover emerg­ing tech­nolo­gies, opti­mi­sa­tion of exist­ing plat­forms and strate­gies to improve strate­gic partnerships.

    To build on the clin­i­cal case stud­ies shared at last year’s event, we are pleased to intro­duce the co-​located “Bio­mark­ers in Clin­i­cal Devel­op­ment Con­gress”, focus­ing on the role of bio­mark­ers in clin­i­cal deci­sion mak­ing, drug effi­cacy pre­dic­tion and clin­i­cal safety. Key deci­sion mak­ers in per­son­alised med­i­cine will com­ple­ment these dis­cus­sions with their insights into phar­ma­coge­nomics, strat­i­fi­ca­tion mark­ers and pre­ci­sion medicine.

    Con­gress Topics

    In keep­ing with Oxford Global’s highly suc­cess­ful life sci­ences series, an expert panel of over 50 speak­ers will present a full con­fer­ence pro­gramme cov­er­ing the top­ics out­lined below:
