The Bio-IT space right now is rife with hype. Blockchain, AI, machine learning, data science, deep learning, edge, IoT, and more are being touted as panaceas, sure to at least facilitate a cure for what ails you. There are some legitimately cool technologies maturing in our space, but there is also plenty of smoke and mirrors designed to conceal the tech growing pains. At Bio-IT World we strive to clear the air with in-depth technical presentations in 17 tracks, education opportunities at 14 workshops, three expert-judged awards programs, and countless face-to-face conversations with the people you want to meet. When 3,400+ attendees from 40+ countries come together at the 2019 Bio-IT World Conference & Expo, it won’t be a conversation you can afford to miss.
The 1st Microbiome Movement – Maternal & Infant Health Summit brings together large pharma, biotech companies, research institutes, and technology experts to harness the causality of maternal-infant microbiome and translate it into therapeutic, nutritional, and preventative solutions for early life health outcomes. Key topics include discovering causal relationships between the maternal-infant microbiome and disease onset and exploring different therapeutic products that restore the infant microbiome, as well as treat and prevent disease. Attendess can expect to learn about study design for investigation of the microbiome in maternal and pediatric settings; the role of the maternal microbiome in preterm birth and infant health outcomes; how to integrate omics data with novel preclinical modelling to generate clinically meaningful results; regulatory processes for IND-approved products targeting maternal and infant populations; and public health, economic, and educational considerations for commercializing microbiome- based products for mothers and infants. This new conference promises to unlock the full potential of preventative, therapeutic and nutritional solutions in the key window of opportunity of the first 1000 days of life.

Cambridge Healthtec Institute’s Biomarker World Congress is now a part of World Pharma Week. Now in its 15th year, Congress is the longest-running event dedicated to all areas of biomarker research and development spanning the pharmaceutical and diagnostic pipelines. With the promising developments in immuno-oncology, significant biomarker R&D has shifted to discovery and development of predictive biomarkers for immunotherapy patient stratification, using biomarker or mechanism data to choose rational combination immunotherapy, and applying immune profiling to predict response to immunotherapy. Advances in clinical and translational biomarkers will also be covered, including patient selection and predicting response to therapy, liquid biopsy and cell free DNA, companion diagnostics and personalized medicine, biomarker assay development and validation, and biomarker-based clinical trials.
Next Generation Dx Summit attracts more than 800 international diagnostic professionals for the latest develops in the industry ranging from biomarker identification and clinical diagnostic development to precision medicine and business strategy. Celebrating its 11th year, the conference spans point-of-care testing, infectious disease diagnostics, companion diagnostics, liquid biopsy, digital pathology and AI, immuno-oncology, insurance coverage and reimbursement, and commercialization of diagnostics. Short course topics during the conference include technologies, applications and commercialization of POC Dx, tumor mutation burden, and data-driven process development in the clinical laboratory, among others.
