Biomarkers for Brain Disorders: Challenges and Opportunities - Cambridge, February 2015
The discovery and validation of biomarkers across neuroscience is an important challenge for early diagnosis of disease and for the development of therapeutics. Methodological and regulatory aspects of biomarker identification and qualification across a wide spectrum of neurodegenerative diseases will be discussed. There will also be a series of break-out sessions for in-depth discussions on cognitive and functional biomarkers, identifying the ‘gaps’ in developing therapeutics, and the analytical and clinical standards required in ‘big data’ projects.
This meeting provides an opportunity for scientists from academia and the commercial sector to discuss the current ‘state of the art’ in biomarkers and will aid future investment decisions in both sectors. We welcome abstracts relevant to the main themes of the meeting. Several oral presentations will be chosen from the abstracts submitted.
Registration and Accommodation
The no accommodation package includes registration and meals only.
Abstract and Posters
After the abstract deadline the scientific committee will assess your abstract and you will be notified whether you have been selected for a short talk or poster presentation.
