50+ expert speakers & 200+ attendees are gathering at the worlds largest CTC meeting to discuss the impact this field is having on the clinic and in drug development.
Do you understand exactly how your organization can benefit?
With CTCs finally moving from bench to bedside, World CTC is bringing together the leading clinical minds alongside pioneering drug developers and academics to discuss progress in this field.
Join us at World CTC on November 13th - 15th to learn how you can use CTC technology to optimize drug development and clinical management of your patients.
But why is World CTC the only CTC meeting you need to attend in 2012?
1. Content like no other CTC meeting
From the lab and clinic to the front line of drug development, cutting-edge research to clinical updates, this meeting will provide you with the information you need to achieve your CTC goals.
Highlights from the Clinic
Get first-hand clinical data to discover how leading clinicians are utilizing CTCs to improve patient management decisions at Massachusetts General Hospital, Fox Chase Cancer Centre and MD Anderson.
Learn how to use CTCs as an accurate predictor of clinical outcome with results from many real world clinical studies showing statistically significant correlations between cancer patients and CTCs.
With clinical experts speaking from the top cancer institutes in the USA, including Massachusetts General Hospital, Fox Chase Cancer Centre, MD Anderson, John Hopkins, Memorial Sloan Kettering and Penn State Cancer Centre, World CTC gives you the unrivalled opportunity to network with the stakeholders who are using CTC technology with patients day to day.
With so much new work to highlight weâ€™ll be running multiple streams at the conference so you can sit in on the topics that are most important to you.
Highlights from Drug Developers
Hear for the first time success stories from drug developers using CTC technologies in clinical trials to identify the right drug for the right patient with Johnson and Johnson, Genentech and Pfizer.
The dedicated industry stream is packed with more innovative drug developers than at any other meeting, including the likes of Pfizer, Genentech, Johnson and Johnson, Novartis, Bristol Myers Squibb, EMD Serono, Eisai and OncoMed giving you the chance to see how the leaders in the field are using CTC to optimize their clinical trials and understand how you can incorporate them into your own research.
Highlights of Academia
With advances in CTC technology allowing more complex characterization of CTC, our increasing understanding of tumor cell biology and metastatic cancer as a disease is having a profound impact on our ability to predict clinical response of patients.
Leading clinicians and academics such as Stefanie Jeffrey (Stanford School of Medicine), Howard Scher (Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre), Peter Kuhns (Scripps Research Institute), Brian Kirby (Cornell University) will be on hand to answer your questions and keep you up to date with the latest research coming out of the CTC field.
2. Unrivalled networking opportunities
