Roadblocks to Biomarker Development

Biotech Connection Singapore Panel Discussion Event

In partnership with ETPL


Tremendous progress has been made in the search for reliable biomarkers that could facilitate early detection of diseases and treatment selection. This has also attracted the interests of companies towards companion diagnostics to help evaluate the efficacy of therapies. Despite the myriad of biomarkers that holds promises for ‘personalized medicine’, very few have been successfully implemented in clinical practice. Issues such as patient heterogeneity, biomarker specificity, and regulation have provided roadblocks to biomarker development. Ultimately, organised efforts by interdisciplinary and cross-institutional teams will spur the advancement of novel biomarkers.

Please join us as BCS brings you an exciting dialogue with our expert panel to exchange perspectives on the clinical and commercialisation challenges in translating biomarkers from lab to market.
