3rd Inflammatory & Immunological Biomarkers

The 3rd Inflammatory & Immunological Biomarkers Conference is one of three conferences part of the Biomarker Summit 2014 to be held on March 19-21, 2014 in San Diego, CA. As the name suggests, this conference will cover both inflammatory and immunological biomarkers in a wide variety of disease areas including cardiovascular disease and cancer. The conference will also focus on the discussion of the unmet medical needs in autoimmune diseases, respiratory diseases, kidney disease, lupus, IBD and other inflammatory diseases. Presentations and case studies from both industry and academia will cover predictive biomarkers, surrogate endpoints and improving clinical trials as it relates to both drug and diagnostic development.
