Circulating Biomarkers 2014 Dundee

In an effort to strengthen the link between emerging knowledge and technologies and personalized healthcare decision points, this conference brings together experts in the area of circulating biomarkers.
Experts will be speaking in the areas of:
- circulating tumour cells (CTCs)
- circulating micro-RNA (miRNA)
- circulating free DNA (cfDNA)
and how biomarkers can be used for better patient healthcare decisions.
