Emerging Genomic Biomarkers: Impact on Drug Discovery and Clinical Practice
joint with The Molecular and Integrative Basis for Toxic Responses
Organizer(s): Stephen H. Friend, Lawrence J. Lesko and Daniel K. Burns
Date: May 07 - 11, 2006
Location: Fairmont Empress Victoria / Victoria Conference Centre, Victoria, BC, Canada
Summary of Meeting:
This conference will focus on bringing together the developers of genomic technologies with the clinicians expecting to use them, and the regulators charged with ensuring their appropriate usage. We will focus on two themes. The first theme will be to exemplify how diverse methods to track DNA, RNA, and protein changes have come to rely on sophisticated techniques of pattern recognition bringing up questions of how best to validate these methods. The second theme is to contrast the strategies needed to develop disease phenotyping marker from those needed for intermediate response markers and from other markers such as predictive markers.
