Molecular Diagnostics (MD2011)
|Event Date/Time: Mar 07, 2011||End Date/Time: Mar 08, 2011|
The field of Molecular Diagnostics is more than the testing and tools to better diagnose and treat disease; rather, the goal for innovative technologies and discoveries in the diagnostics field is to treat the right patient with the right therapeutic with the right tools. The pharmaceutical industry has identified the need to develop diagnostic tools alongside the development of therapies to improve the usefulness and cost effectiveness of newly discovered drugs. As the healthcare industry makes advances towards personalized medicine, the rules and guidelines continue to change and adapt making product approval challenging.
Come and join the discussion at GTCbio`s Molecular Diagnostics Conference to be held in Philadelphia, PA on March 7-8, 2011. Network with colleagues in academia, industry, and healthcare to share and learn about the latest technologies and novel discoveries in the diagnostics field. Gain insight into the issues and challenges facing the healthcare industry and hear success stories from industry leaders.
