Biomarkers in research and clinical practice
This one day course is part of Nowgen’s Stratified Medicine themed training programme.
This is an introductory level course suitable for delegates in the pharmaceutical industry, healthcare sector or research that require an understanding of biomarkers in research, drug development and clinical practice. The course will include an open discussion session for delegates to discuss their areas of specific interest.
