This session will discuss current topics presented by experts in their fields of research and practice. Placed in the context of molecular cellular pathology presentations will explore disease mechanisms, clinical advances and latest technology breakthroughs.
Day 2: Developments in immunohistochemistry for diagnostic cellular pathology Developments in Immunohistochemistry (IHC) techniques and technology to aid the improvements needed to boost and strengthen the use of IHC in future diagnostic pathology practice will be discussed
Biomarkers identifying biological and physiological entities associated with disease are taking an increasingly important place at the tables of drug discovery and personalised medicine. Their discovery in biosamples requires the combined use of genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics platforms. Whilst for their application, robust techniques combining exquisite sensitivity and specificity must be developed. This conference is focused on technologies that are driving advances in this area and their application at gene and expression level in solid and fluid biosamples. As such this session is targeted to provide leading edge information to researchers within the academic, biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors.
