The discovery and validation of biomarkers in neurological and neurodegenerative diseases is an important challenge for early diagnosis of disease and for the development of therapeutics.

The conference will be an opportunity for researchers and stakeholders to discuss the current latest in biomarkers and the standardisation of clinical biomarkers most likely to aid in the diagnosis and imaging-based studies in biomarker drug discovery.

This conference will  bring together leading neuroscientists from academia and industry involved in genomics, proteomics, diagnostics, imaging and regulatory affairs.

Biomarkers 2013


  • Methodological and regulatory aspects of biomarker identification and qualification across a wide spectrum of neurodevelopmental, neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric diseases will be discussed including, autism, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis and schizophrenia.
  • There will also be a series of break-out sessions for in-depth discussion on the standardization of clinical biomarkers most likely to aid diagnosis and imaging-based studies in biomarker drug discovery.
