Select Biosciences Exosomes and Liquid Biopsies Europe 2018 Conference brings together academic researchers, industry researchers, as well as biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies to explore the expanding and evolving field whereby circulating biomarkers of various classes are being evaluated for their potential to be developed into minimally-invasive diagnostics and liquid biopsies for cancer as well as other disease classes.

This Exosomes and Liquid Biopsies 2018 Conference focuses primarily on biofluid-based molecular biomarkers, such as circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) as well as circulating tumor cells (CTCs), protein-based circulating biomarkers, and exosomes/extracellular vesicles (EVs).  There is much interest in the potential of ctDNA and EVs for developing biological fluid-based biopsies (such as using plasma, urine, or other biofluids) and the presenters in this conference bring together the most up-to-date information and current state-of-the-field.

The conference further explores the potential of various minimally-invasive circulating biomarker classes, such as circulating-free DNA (cfDNA), CTCs, and Extracellular Vesicles (EVs), for development of novel diagnostics for early patient monitoring.

Another component of this conference is the exploration of the science behind Exosomes and Extracellular Vesicles -- Diagnostic and Therapeutic Potential.

The conference is being held in Rotterdam, The Netherlands-an excellent venue for networking with connections across The Netherlands, Europe and Worldwide. The conference includes an exhibition bringing together companies from around the world focused on developing technologies, tools, products and services serving the liquid biopsy field.

The Conference Chairman and Chief Scientific Advisor is Professor Dominique de Kleijn, Professor, University Medical Center Utrecht, The Netherlands.

Information and Local Registration Facilities for this Conference are also available in:
