Translational biomarkers & precision medicine seminar

Are you interested in learning more about state-of-the-art advanced biomarker discovery strategies?


04.09.2020 kl. 12.30 - 16.00



Translational Biomarkers are potential prognostic, diagnostic, and treatment indicators. Despite their increasing potential for precision medicine, their development and validation remain challenging. Translational studies benefit from fundamental studies in well suited models  using pig to human studies. In this seminar we will highlight a range of timely topics and translational  research for post-genomics biomarker development and disease  pathophysiology for improved precision medicine.
