Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Fourth Annual

PCR & NGS-Based Molecular Diagnostics

From Assay to FDA: Preparing PCR for Personalized Medicine

February 20-22, 2017 | Moscone North Convention Center | San Francisco, CA
Part of the 24th International Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference


Advances in molecular diagnostics technologies have sparked innovation, expanded research capabilities, and enhanced clinical diagnostics. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Fourth Annual PCR and NGS-Based Diagnostics puts an emphasis on the technologies that drive personalized medicine, from PCR and NGS to microarrays, and showcases how they are being used to alter clinical outcomes. This event will provide a comprehensive look at integrating molecular diagnostics solutions for biomarker discovery and development, point-of-care, companion diagnostics, and infectious disease. Molecular technologies will be compared and evaluated and case studies on getting regulatory approval will be shared. Overall, this event provides insight into advanced techniques and tools for effective disease diagnosis.

Who should attend: Vice Presidents, Directors, Managers, CEOs, CSOs, Professors and Scientists from Large Pharma, Biotechs and Academia working in fields such as Diagnostics, Business Development, R&D, Chemistry, Clinical Research, Personalized Healthcare, Process Development, and Oncology.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Technologies to drive personalized medicine
    • PCR, qPCR, dPCR
    • Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS)
    • Microarray

  • Comparison and standardization of methods
  • FDA guidance and rulings
  • Case studies on getting FDA approval
  • Molecular-based POC tests
  • Companion diagnostics
  • Cancer molecular markers
  • Antimicrobial susceptibility testing
