Description:

One of key reasons for the failed clinical trials is often due to inadequate biomarkers used for outcome measurements. There have been increasing NIH-funding mechanisms toward disease biomarker studies. This session will group a team of experts who are experienced in this area and share their insights in the establishment of biomarkers in clinical studies.

Objective(s):

  • To reiterate the definition of biomarker and outcome measurements in clinical studies.

  • To discuss how to identify and validate biomarkers.

  • To discuss specific success or failure examples in biomarker studies.
