Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Third Annual

PCR for Molecular Medicine

From Assay to FDA: Preparing PCR for Personalized Medicine

March 7-9, 2016 | Moscone North Convention Center | San Francisco, CA
Part of the 23rd International Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference


Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) has become increasingly cost effective, sensitive, and precise. With emphasis on personalized medicine on the rise, the need for inexpensive, reliable diagnostics will grow. Today, advances in PCR have sparked innovation, expanded research capabilities, and made the technology more clinically useful than ever. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Third Anunal 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 from assay development to FDA approval 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:

  • Technologies to drive personalized medicine
  • Longitudinal studies
  • Increasing sensitivity and specificity of assays
  • New techniques for library preparation
  • Comparison and standardization of methods
  • Optimizing input for single cell analysis
  • FDA guidance and rulings
  • Case studies on getting FDA approval
  • Translating from technology to clinically useful data
  • Clinical case studies
