The dynamic landscape of biomarker validation


The use of biomarkers in clinical research is finally coming of age, with an ever-increasing importance in clinical studies, patient stratification, diagnosis and therapeutic monitoring, and requires a ‘fit-for-purpose’ validation approach. Instead of validation guidance becoming more unified and transparent with time, the continuum of fit-for-purpose validation is becoming more dynamic as the utilization of biomarkers broadens. Eurofins Pharma Bioanalytics Services provides specialized biomarker services and validation consultation to clients ranging from pre-clinical animal studies, as well as pharmaceutical clinical trials and therapeutic monitoring. We will share our guidelines in providing highly individualized fit-for-purpose biomarker testing and validation services, ensuring that a biomarker is scientifically and clinically meaningful for its specified purposes.

What will you learn?

  • Explore the continuum of early exploratory biomarker analysis from FDA GLP and CLIA GLP guidelines
  • What applications people currently use for biomarker validation
  • Latest techniques and guidelines to provide an individualized plan for biomarker validation services

Who may this interest?

  • Bioanalytical scientists
  • Clinical scientists/chemists
  • Tranlational scientists in Pharma and Biotech
  • Research scientists in Pharma and Biotech
