2018 Business Development Course

October 29-30
Pennsylvania Convention Center
Philadelphia, PA USA

This course provides an in-depth look at Medical Diagnostics including current trends, protection for diagnostics, licensing diagnostics and regulatory considerations. Join us as we explore how medical diagnostics have become one of the leading disruptive areas for innovation in healthcare industry. New tools rapidly enter medical laboratories and physicians’ offices, appear on the shelves of convenience stores creating a new paradigm in healthcare.

Next-generation sequencing, wearable sensors, liquid biopsies, new point-of-care and companion diagnostics had a profound impact on healthcare delivery. As the medical diagnostics field develops the commercialization path for novel diagnostic technologies becomes progressively more sophisticated and complex.
