DSMOME afholder symposium sammen med Biopeople og Bioneer: Biomarkers and the implementation of personalized Medicine to the Clinic

1st Danish Symposium on Biomarkers and the Implementation of Personalized Medicine to the Clinic

On January 13th, 2015 the 1st Danish Symposium on Biomarkers and the Implementation of Personalized Medicine to the Clinic is taking place at the Panum Institute in Copenhagen. The symposium is co-hosted by the Danish Society of Molecular Medicine, Biopeople, and Bioneer and the speakers will discuss a range of disciplines within the area of translational medicine.

“With this symposium we are looking to establish a discussion forum on where we are lacking biomarkers to improve patient stratification and how we can use existing technologies and new platforms in the future both to implement personalized medicine in the clinic but also to aid in future drug development and drug/diagnostic co-development. Through the Biomarker Network Initiation following up on this symposium we will define workshops dealing with these challenges,” explains Kim Holmstrøm, R&D Manager, Molecular Detection, Bioneer.
