Discovering, Developing and Transitioning Biomarkers: Multiple Pathways to Commercialization


As technological improvements reveal more about the genomic drivers underpinning disease, biomarkers are playing an increasingly important role in cancer care decision making. Despite the predictive and prognostic value of these markers well realised, challenges still exist with their clinical implementation, stalling the development of
therapies targeting aberrant disease pathways.

In this deep dive online event, expert speakers addressed key opportunities to refine study and assay design enabling you to carry your biomarker through all the way to commercialization.

Key Topics Included:  

  • Early validation of biomarkers and incorporation into trials
  • Successfully validated biomarker discovery processes and supporting case study evidence
  • Comprehensive tumour profiling as an effective approach to accurate multi-marker detection, analysis and interpretation
  • Current commercial assays addressing CDx mutations and supporting global distribution at launch
  • Latest advances in diagnostic technology enabling fast, efficient and effective data interpretation

Following a live Q&A, feel free to stay and mingle with key Covance executives and your precision oncology peers to converse and learn how others are addressing today’s most pressing industry challenges.

Who should attend?

This was an event for senior executives from drug development organizations looking to refine trial design, increase identification of patient responders and accelerate delivery of the next generation of targeted therapies in areas of high unmet need.
