Translational Medicine 2017

Translational Medicine 2017 is the third bi-annual conference organized by EATRIS. This event, open to a wide range of stakeholders (pharma industry, academia, research funders), will bring together experts and key actors in translational research, to discuss current approaches and future perspectives in the eld.

The theme of this third edition will be “Enhancing Predictivity in Medicines Development” and will focus on bringing together the latest approaches to increase chances of success in drug development, from novel in vitro systems to new biomarkers or clinical trial methodology for patient selection and stratification. The conference will start on Sunday, September 24 with a series of educational workshops. The workshops will be dedicated to key topics in the field such as molecular imaging, biomarker validation and potency assays for ATMP. The plenary session on September 25 & 26 will be structured around three subthemes:

Session 1: The Funder, Developer and Regulator as Partners in Innovation

Session 2: Novel approaches in clinical development

Session 3: Developing more predictive preclinical tools to better reach proof of concept
