Biomarker Summit 2017

20–22 March 2017
San Diego, United States

Dear Colleague,

The Biomarker Summit 2017, to be held on March 20-22, 2017 in San Diego, CA at the Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa, 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. 

A wide variety of important topics will be covered including 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. Through scientific presentations, case studies and panel discussions, these areas will be addressed in an intimate and highly interactive environment with perspectives from industry, academia and the public sector. 

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 four major therapeutic areas, formally organized in the following tracks:
