GTC biomarker summit 2016

The Biomarker Summit 2016, to be held 21-23 March 2016 in San Diego, CA at the Westin San Diego Hotel, is a meeting place for leaders in the field to discuss the issues and challenges scientists and researchers face in all aspects of the biomarker and diagnostic development process from discovery to translation to commercialization.

Topics to be covered include biomarker identification, validation, and translation strategies, bioinformatics and systems biology approaches to personalized medicine, big data analytics and management, regulatory and reimbursement trends, companion diagnostics development, and much more. Assembling leading scientists, researchers, decision-makers and other players across the industry spectrum, the Summit provides a unique opportunity to gain the latest biomarker developments in three major therapeutic areas, formally organized in the following tracks:
