The Companion Diagnostics Summit Europe has been designed by industry leading biomarker and companion diagnostics specialists. With input and participation from Roche, Novartis, Johnson & Johnson, Bayer, AstraZeneca, Pfizer, NICE, EMA and CRUK among others. The agenda will assist you in turning biomarker research into successful patient stratification and to deliver better, safer drugs to market with drug-diagnostic co-development.

This meeting steps away from the larger, more generic biomarker or personalised medicine conferences. The aim is to discuss the opportunities and challenges specifically focused around companion diagnostic development. Because that's the next crucial step to master if we are going to achieve patient stratification.

What's on the agenda?

How do you identify predictive biomarkers, in early research, that are really going to deliver substantial clinical benefit?
When do you commit to a biomarker program and how do you translate your biomarker research into the clinic to produce a robust biomarker assay?
What is the right clinical strategy when trying to simultaneously achieve validation of a drug and diagnostic?
What does the regulatory landscape look like and how can you change your development approach to pass the regulatory hurdles?
How do you ensure commercial return on companion diagnostics?
How do you acquire all the resources you need to facilitate companion diagnostic development and how do we best deliver on personalised medicine through partnerships?
Why attend?

Every presentation and contact will help you improve your research and business aims - everyone at the meeting is here to discuss how to achieve patient stratification and the targeting of drugs to specific patient populations by turning predictive biomarkers into robust diagnostic tests.

Don't just listen to speakers and attendees - meet them and discuss your work in our intimate and informal conference setting. Plus, we'll make sure you meet everybody you want to in our dedicated speed networking session.

Receive tailored guidance on drug-diagnostic co-development - our pre-conference workshops are a fantastic opportunity to get the information and contacts you need to achieve your research and business aims (over and above the inside information you will gain from the meeting itself).
