Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Second Annual

PCR for Molecular Medicine

Integrating Approaches for Clinical Success

February 15-18, 2015 | Moscone North Convention Center | San Francisco, CA


Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a staple in diagnostic labs worldwide with applications ranging from cancer to infectious diseases. Today, advances in PCR have sparked innovation, expanded research capabilities, and made the technology more clinically useful than ever. Cambridge Healthtech Institute's Second Annual PCR for Molecular Medicine will emphasize integrated approaches for PCR, from traditional to digital, as well as next-generation sequencing. PCR for Molecular Medicine will provide a comprehensive look at PCR in both the research and clinical setting as well as insight into advanced techniques and tools for effective disease diagnosis.

Who Should Attend: VPs, 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 will include, but are not limited to:

  • Improvements to qPCR
  • High resolution melting
  • Liquid biopsy
  • Analysis of circulating biomarkers
  • Viral load testing and pathogen detection
  • Minority target detection
  • Copy number variation
  • Absolute quantification
  • Residual disease detection
  • Using PCR for patient stratification
  • Case studies showcasing integrated approaches across technologies
  • FDA approvals of qPCR assays
  • Novel applications for clinical diagnostics
  • Applications in high burden disease countries
