Biomarkers for
Patient Stratification

November 5-6, 2013 | Boston Marriott Cambridge | Cambridge, MA

Drug discovery is a long, costly process with a high attrition rate, and a personalized medicine strategy is needed to improve clinical outcomes. Identifying the subclass of patients who is likely to respond to drugs and developing biomarkers for patient stratification before recruitment for clinical trials would improve efficacy and response rates. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Inaugural Biomarkers for Patient Stratification meeting will explore the integration of biomarkers and companion diagnostics into drug development, case studies of using biomarkers to guide clinical decision making, molecular profiling approaches and their impact on clinical development, as well as personalized medicine initiatives at big pharma.

Topics Include: 

  • Molecular profiling of tumor heterogeneity
  • Personalized medicine at big pharma
  • Incorporating molecular diagnostics into drug development
  • Biomarkers to guide therapy
