BIOTEK2021-Bioteknologi for verdiskaping

3rd International NTNU Symposium on Clinical Biomarkers of Cancer

Awarded: NOK 99,999

In June 2021, we will organize the third conference in a series devoted to clinical biomarkers of cancer. The conference was scheduled for 2020, but unfortunately had to be postponed due to the pandemic. The two previous meetings in 2016 and 2018 were highly successful with outstanding international participation and with a lasting effect on cooperation between Norwegian and international scientists within this field. This year we will organize a digital meeting, again due to current pandemic. Our speakers will attend through virtual media (Zoom), with either live or pre-recorded talks. We have invited 24 speakers who have confirmed their attendance. They are affiliated with outstanding institutions in countries like the US, France, Italy, Germany and Australia and are leading experts within the field. The event will last from 15th - 17th of June and will be composed of presentations by the invited faculty. They will cover topics like early detection, screening and precision diagnostics, immunotherapy and biomarkers, toxicity, including financial toxicity and novel predictive biomarkers. The patient perspective will be highlighted as well through former patient and actress, Coby Omvlee, presenting her personal story.
