SELECTBIO welcomes you to its 2nd. Annual Circulating Biomarkers Conference.  This conference held in the city of Boston close to world-leading research institutions and hospitals seeks to bring together academic researchers, clinician-scientists, as well as researchers from companies all focusing on various classes of biomarkers.  Also, this event is an excellent meeting place for business development and marketing professionals from companies seeking to network with top-tier researchers from world-leading institutions.

Our goal in this conference is to facilitate learning, exchange of information, foster collaborations, partnering, and networking, as well as bring together the vendors offering products and services to this research field; this conference includes an exhibit hall integrated with the conference sessions allowing vendors to connect with and reach effectively the target customers.

Finally, we will host "Exosome Night" yet again with beer, wine, and hors d'oeuvres--an excellent opportunity to network with your peers and forge partnerships, and for exhibits to connect with researchers and discuss their science and the new products in this space.
