Molecular Diagnostics and Therapeutics

Molecular diagnostics and therapeutics is becoming a driving force in drug development. Applications have spread from identifying infections to include screening for cancer, hepatitis, and a variety of genetic disorders, and even tissue screening to minimise the risks of tissue rejection. This conference will discuss recent developments on next-generation sequencing, wearable sensors, liquid biopsies, direct-to-consumer testing and early cancer detection that are having a profound impact on healthcare delivery.
