Designing, Constructing and Implementing Standards-Based End-to-End System for Biomarker Development
December 13-14, 2012
JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn
The inaugural NBDA workshop is the first in a series that will, over the next many months, bring together groups of experts from all sectors to specifically identify the level of evidence standards needed to support a successful biomarker development. The mission of the NBDA is to collaboratively create the NBDA Standards* required for end-to-end, systems- based biomarker development to advance precision (personalized) medicine. Although there are many on going initiatives working on pieces of this problem, assembling the standards needed to successfully move from biomarker discovery to clinical application requires organizational capabilities, multi-sector engagement, and significant resources. The NBDA will endeavor to integrate these elements into badly needed solutions.
This workshop is designed to be both an exploratory and problem solving meeting.
