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
  • Circulating Cell-Free Nucleic Acids (cfDNA, extracellular RNAs)
  • Rare Cells in the Circulation (such as Circulating Tumor Cells/CTCs)
  • Circulating Proteins
The 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.

Call for Posters

You can also present your research on a poster while attending the meeting. Submit an abstract for consideration now!

Poster Submission Deadline: 07 March 2017
