Over the two days, the conference will cover over 15 leading industry case studies, detailing how you can validate and apply biomarkers for better-informed decision-making and considering the challenges, costs and benefits involved in developing, discovering and integrating biomarker applications.

Through a series of case studies, presentations and interactive panel discussion sessions, the conference programme will address a series of issues arising from the discovery and integration of biomarker technologies within discovery, development and the preclinical to clinical phases, including:

- Strategy: Biomarkers as a means of empowering decision-making, reducing costs and increasing productivity
- Technologies: Imaging biomarkers and molecular biomarkers
- Biomarkers as markers of activity and surrogate endpoints
- Regulation: Constraints and challenges
- Biomarkers in the preclinical phase
- Efficacy models
- Metabolomic, genomic and proteomic applications
- Clinical validation of biomarkers
- Toxicity biomarkers: safety, validation and efficacy testing
