Welcome to the Select Biosciences, Inc. Fourth Annual Circulating Biomarkers World Congress 2017.  This annual event brings together the key opinion leaders from academia as well as industry focusing on the research and clinical applications of the various circulating biomarker classes.

In 2017, we will focus on the following circulating biomarker classes:
  • Exosomes and Various Extracellular Vesicle (EV) Classes: Research, Biomarker Potential and Therapeutics Applications
  • Circulating Cell-Free Nucleic Acids (cfDNA, extracellular RNAs)
  • Rare Cells in the Circulation (such as Circulating Tumor Cells/CTCs)
  • Circulating Proteins

The overall congress focuses on basic research presentations complemented by applications-focused as well as technology development presentations, exhibits presenting the latest product offerings in the field, plus posters for late-breaking research in the field.

The Exosomes/EV track focuses on the following topic areas covering the complete progression of the field:

  • Life Science Research
  • Diagnostics Potential Afforded by these Circulating Biomarkers Found in Biofluids
  • Therapeutic Potential of Exosomes/EVs

Agenda Topics

  • Extracellular Vesicle-based Biomarkers: Exosomes and Microvesicles in Biological Fluids
    • Biomarker Cargo (Large RNAs, Small RNAs, DNA)
    • Potential as Delivery Shuttles for Therapeutics Applications
  • Extracellular Vesicles (EVs): Exosomes and Microvesicles as Circulating Biomarker Carriers
  • Extracellular Vesicles as Biomarker Carriers in Various Disease Classes
    • Cancer, Cardiovascular Disease, CNS Disease, Pregnancy & Reproductive Health
  • Research Methodologies and Workflow: Isolation, Capture, Biomarker Cargo Analysis
