The Inaugural Biomarker Discovery Conference (BDC 2010)
To be held from Monday December 6 - Friday December 10, 2010, in the Shoal Bay Resort and Spa, beachfront on magnificent Shoal Bay, Port Stephens NSW Australia.
The 21st century has seen a revolution in biology and medicine that will radically change the way we monitor health and diagnose disease. Central to this revolution: a multidisciplinary approach to the evolving science of biomarker discovery and identification. BDC 2010 showcases the latest innovations in Biomarker Discovery using genomic, proteomic and metabolomic tools and methods.
Join us at the inaugural meeting and be part of a group of people who will drive the innovation of this research area and clinical practice. Attendees will network with world leaders in novel data analytic techniques for biomarker identification from high-throughput technologies. With cross disciplinary speakers we anticipate envigorating and mutually informing interdisciplinary discussions, new collaborations and an excellent opportunity to be inspired for the approaching grant-writing season!
