48 Clinical OMICs May/June 201 Industry Events Biomarkers and Immuno-Oncology World Congress June 17–20, Boston Now in its 15th year, the Biomarkers and Immuno-Oncol- ogy World Congress—part or World Pharma Week longest running conference and event encompassing both pharmaceutical and diagnostic developmen development in immuno-oncology, a signific biomarker R&D has shifted to biomarkers for apy patient stratification, using biomark data to choose rational combination immunotherapy, and applying immune profiling to predict respo notherapy. Latest advances in clinical a biomarkers will also be covered, including patient selection and predicting response to therapy, liquid biopsy and cell free DNA, companion diagnostics and personalized medi- cine, biomarker assay development and validation, and bio- marker-based clinical trials. And as digit impact on drug and diagnostic development, the conference will explore emerging digital biomarkers and their utility in clinical trials, advances in biosensors and wearables as clin- ical endpoints, integration of mobile health into drug devel- opment, and the latest applications of Internet of Things (IoT), and smartphones in point-of-care testing and remote patient monit UK Biobank Scientific Conference June 19, London The UK Biobank Scientific Conference will be held at the QEII Conference Centre, London and is open researchers, industry, charities, and anyone interested in making best use of this this extensive research resource, both in the U.K. and around the world.
