What is the Clinical Biomarkers & World CDx Europe Meeting?

Clinical Biomarkers & World CDx Europe is uniting biomarker, diagnostic and precision medicine leaders to advance clinically predictive biomarkers to proven IVDs. Improving patient outcomes and standard of care, this meeting is built for biomarkertranslationalclinicalregulatory and commercial functions to tackle end-to-end challenges and deliver successful drug-Dx products.

Following the FDA’s approval of 12 personalised medicines and 7 diagnostics in 2019, then a record number of precision oncology drugs in H1 2020,  demand is high for Dx-enabled therapies to reach the market.  Despite the added pressures of the Covid-19 pandemic, in addition to a changing regulatory and fragmented environment, we are seeing significant progresses by pharma, academia and diagnostic expertise towards expediting the development of drugs in areas of great unmet medical need. It’s now important key stakeholders come together to share successes and lessons learnt to contextualise on advances and collaborate to deliver therapeutic advances in a more time effective manner.

Over the course of two days, the 11th annual Clinical Biomarkers & CDx Europe Summit will bring all stakeholders together to fast-track precision medicine through clinically validated biomarkers and companion diagnostics partnerships in Europe. The two-tracks meeting will tackle key conversations spanning biomarker discovery through to drug-Dx market penetration, enabling you with innovation to power pipeline progression. Join to hear and learn from true trailblazers on latest tools and techniques validating biomarker utility, overcoming patient selection challenges in rare disease, key clinical case-study learnings shaping diagnostic strategy in addition to the much needed core EU focus on navigating a tricky regulatory and reimbursement landscape to prevent incoming regulations hindering the delivery of critical drugs to patients in need.

Featuring dynamic panels, 5+ hours of networking, interactive roundtables and not to mention the incredible 45+ expert speakers – You won’t want to miss this important and timely opportunity to re-connect with your global precision medicine peers at this industry leading event! 

How Will it Help You Deliver Predictive Markers & Effective Drug-Dx Products?

Built for biopharma, clinical and diagnostic teams, this meeting provides the opportunity to tackle your biggest roadblocks and uncover new opportunities in biomarker research and drug development.

You can hear from the likes of Merck KGaA, AstraZeneca, Regeneron, TÜV SÜD & many many more for 2 days of in-depth case studies, interactive panel discussions, dedicated Q&A time and highly appraised online networking opportunities to meet and learn from industry trailblazers and precision medicine pioneers.

What’s more, our streamed format gives you the opportunity to tailor attendance to suit your needs, allowing you to get the best possible return from your attendance. Check out the full event guide to see what will be discussed!
