Boost Seminar – "Science after Hours"

Medicon Valley Alliance in collaboration with ICON plc invites you to join leading industry experts on biomarker research for a unique, dynamic and interactive evening.
Science after Hours is a “moving round table” networking event where you can learn and engage with leading biomarker experts and industry colleagues about compelling scientific insights on the use of biomarkers to inform and accelerate your early drug development.
Round tables will be led by key leaders in biomarker development and analysis, for provocative discussions with colleagues on the latest industry trends and challenges. Topics range from imaging biomarkers and the early use of human pharmacodynamic models of disease state, to new and automated laboratory platforms, companion diagnostics and regulatory expectations. In addition, therapeutic areas of focus will include Cognition, Pain, Oncology, and Inflammation.
Participants will be given their choice of three of the four round table discussion to select in advance of the event. A selection of drinks and canapés will be served.
