Biomarker-based companion diagnostics (CDx), designed to identify treatment responsive patients, lie at the heart of the emerging personalized, precision medicine movement. This 2-day conference will discuss research, financial, and regulatory strategies to facilitate CDx development and integration. Presentations will analyze diverse therapeutic target areas beyond cancer such as inflammatory, infectious, cardiovascular, metabolic, and neurodegenerative diseases; evaluate emerging applications of technologies such as epigenetics, bioinformatics, and nanotechnology; illustrate successes and failures via case studies; recognize regulatory hurdles; and formulate solutions to better improve public health with CDx and personalized medicine.
