Join us at the 5th Annual COMPANION DIAGNOSTICS FORUM. During the five short years after the launch of the Precision Medicine program, the need for companion diagnostics has grown rapidly to keep pace with novel developments in pharma. Consequently, support areas have had to accelerate to catch up with technical breakthroughs, including education, regulations, and adoption in clinical applications. At this year’s forum, speakers will address how these various areas are meshing to bring better healthcare to patients.
COVID-19 Note: We currently expect to have an on-site event at NJHA on October 27-28, but we have a full parallel Virtual environment for this event, including Presentation streams and an Exhibit Hall. You may purchase an on-site Attendee pass or attend on-line. If we are forced to a pure on-line event, on-site Attendee passes will be converted to on-line passes and you will receive a refund of the difference in fees.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Each year welcomes increasing numbers of drugs and biologics supported by assays designed to indicate the safety and/or efficacy for specified populations. While this is a positive sign for precision diagnostics and therapeutics in general, several issues have arisen in the course of testing drugs and assays, e.g., finding more precise biomarkers, developing drugs for unmet needs. Solutions are being discovered, but the “elephant in the room” continues to be why only a percent of any population responds to any given therapy. And, what can be done for those patients with unmet needs? So lots left to do! Moving to the next level will take advocating for an organization-wide, systemic adoption of precision medicine to realize the full potential of this paradigm. Subsequent success requires building broad alliances in this space and making the case for market-driven uptake. For this year’s Forum, we are calling for abstracts that consider scientific, technical, and organizational solutions to issues relating to the uptake and use of precision medicine. Come join us!
We look forward to your abstracts and participation. Event topics this year include:
- Biomarkers – Discovery and Clinical Development
- Precision Medicine
- Business Models and Partnerships
- Regulatory Issues
- Drug and Diagnostics Pricing Transparency
