The 3rd annual Circulating Biomarkers 2016 conference took place in Dundee in partnership with Edinburgh-Dundee ECMC and the Abertay Bioscience Society at Abertay University. In just the last couple of years circulating biomarkers have gained traction as a cutting edge technology for drug development and medicine. EU Policy makers and grant funding bodies have been championing the desire to break the translational bottle-neck. As researchers focus more on breaking the translational bottle neck they have started to look more closely at the kinds of biomarkers which will enable this. These circulating biomarkers such as circulating DNA (ctDNA/cfDNA/cftDNA), miRNA/microRNA, circulating tumour cells & exosomes are indeed useful and we have been covering them in the last few conferences with some great data and presentations from opinion leaders in the respective areas. We have heard from researchers about how they perform their biased and unbiased discovery on these circulating biomarkers and then validate and move them into the clinic so that the blood biopsy tests can be realized.Find out more »
The third annual NGS 2016 Nordic Conference took place at Medicon Village in Lund and was organised in partnership with the Kennedy Centre at Rigshospitalet, Odense University Hospital and Lund Cancer Centre.
The conference, which was opened by Prof Thoas Fioretos, focused on the use of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies and tools to look at human disease whether in a research or a clinical setting.Find out more »
Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) 2016 Benelux, is an annual genomics event that took place in Brussels and was held between 14th & 17th November 2016 at the Vrije Universiteit Brussels. This event was in partnership with the Brussels Inter university Genomics High Throughput core (BRIGHTcore) – the Centre for Medical Genetics of VUB – UZ Brussels & Genome Diagnostics Nijmegen. In conjunction with the conference there was a Two day Workshop that provided Next Generation Sequencing data analysis training to those working in the wetlab who want to be able to analyse the data and understand the data analysis workflows.Find out more »
