EATRIS organises its third bi-annual conference on September 24-26 in Prague, Translational Medicine 2017. This event, open to a wide range of stakeholders (industry, academia, policymakers), will gather international experts to discuss the latest advancements in translational medicine.
Registrations are now open, please visit the conference’s website to register.
The theme of this third edition will be “Enhancing Predictivity in Medicines Development” and will focus on bringing together the latest approaches to increase chances of success in drug development, from novel in vitro systems to new biomarkers or clinical trial methodology for patient selection and stratification.
The conference will start on Sunday, September 24 with a series of educational workshops. The workshops will be dedicated to key topics in the field such as molecular imaging, biomarker validation and potency assays for ATMP. The plenary session on September 25 & 26 will be structured around three subthemes, introduced by keynote speakers:
Session 1: The Funder, Developer and Regulator as Partners in Innovation
Session 2: Novel approaches in clinical development
Session 3: Developing the preclinical tools to better predict success
Additional speakers will be invited based on abstract submissions. The call for abstracts will be open mid-February and close on May 15.
For more information on the preliminary programme and the call for abstacts, please visit the conference website.
Following its inaugural conference in 2013, EATRIS organised its second conference in May 2015, named “Building Bridges in Translational Medicine”. The event gathered 250 European and international stakeholders to discuss how we can better meet the challenges facing drug and diagnostic development.
