Welcome Address


Speakers Introduction & Memento Presentation

Session 1: Journey from Cancer Biomarkers Research to Commercial Products


Colvera™, A ctDNA Liquid Biopsy Assay for Colorectal Cancer. Our Journey from Discovery to the Clinic
Jason Ross, Sr Research Scientist And Team Leader, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, Australia

The speaker will discuss the journey that he and their collaborators undertook: from biomarker discovery and validation, to assay design and then to clinical trials and the launch of a commercial lab test.


Nanostring TechnologiesnCounter Analysis System: Moving from Genomic Discovery to Translational Research
Jay Manikandan, Field Application Scientist, Nanostring Technologies


Q/A Discussion


Beckman CoulterTechnology Spotlight:
Technological Advancements in Single Cell Analysis, helping in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Immunophenotyping and Circulating Tumor Cells Studies
Amitav Mohanty, Manager Market Development, Beckman Coulter


Coffee Break and Networking in Exhibition Area

Session 2: Prognostic, Predictive and POC: Biomarkers from Research to Clinic- I


Aurora A kinase, a Biomarker and a Target for Cancer Research
Claude Prigent, Professor, University of Rennes School of Medicine, France

The presenter will cover the role of Aurora A kinase with Tumour which made it a priority target to develop Inhibitors. Further, it will also explain how Aurora A kinase acted as tumor suppressor. The talk will highlight the dual function of Aurora-A and will discuss various identified inhibitors.


Mining the Urinary Proteome for Non-invasive Cancer Biomarkers
Roopali Roy, Research Scientist, Boston Children’s Hospital; Instructor, Harvard Medical School, United States of America

This presentation will review a sampling of representative non-invasive, urinary cancer biomarkers. The speaker will discuss their strategies for the development of point of care devices for the use of our biomarkers as clinical tests in resource-poor settings.

Plenary Presentation


Networked and Portable DNA Analysers - The Future of Disease Surveillance and Management
Jonathan O'Halloran, Chief Scientific Officer/Co Founder, QuantuMDx Group Ltd, United Kingdom

With the widely reported threat of antibiotic resistance, and the ongoing global battle against drug-resistant tuberculosis, the need for rapid, accurate and actionable diagnostics is ever more acute. Jonathan will present QuantuMDx’s portable, sample-to-result DNA analyser that will deliver referral laboratory-standard results in 20 minutes by the patient’s side.

Coffee Break and Networking in Exhibition Area

Session 4: Biomarkers based Diagnostic Devices for Infectious Diseases


Rapid Pathogen-Biomarker Based Universal Diagnostics of Bacterial Infection at the Point of Care
Harshini Mukundan, Principal Investigator, Los Alamos National Laboratory, United States of America

The talk will highlight how they have developed a suite of patented methods for the rapid detection of pathogen signatures, and will discuss its feasibility of application in diagnosis of infection associated with gram-positive, negative and indeterminate pathogens in blinded clinical samples for which the presenter used novel sensor technology developed at the Los Alamos National Laboratory.It will then show how their technologies are now on the verge of market development, and how transition plans are being developed and executed to ensure commercial transition.
