Select Biosciences Fifth Annual Circulating Biomarkers World Congress 2018 brings together the most up-to-date technologies and advances in this expanding and evolving field.  Our coverage in this conference track focuses on the various classes of circulating nucleic acid biomarkers:
  • Circulating Nucleic Acids: Circulating Cell-Free DNA (cfDNA)
  • Circulating RNAs such as microRNAs in Biofluids
This conference features speakers from academia as well as industry addressing the following topic areas:
  • Technologies for Isolation and Characterization from Various Biofluids
  • Role in Cancer and Various Other Disease Classes (such as Cardiovascular Disease, CNS Disease and Beyond)
  • Biomarker Potential for Diagnostics Development
Registered delegates receive access to the co-located concurrent conference tracks, the co-located exhibit hall featuring companies providing tools and technologies address the circulating biomarkers field, as well as round-table discussions facilitating networking in specific topic areas.
