Organizer

Associate Professor Parisa Gazerani, Center for Sensory Motor Interaction, Aalborg University, Denmark

Program

Please see https://smi.hst.aau.dk/events/therapeutic-development/

Description

Biomarkers are essential elements in translational medicine and play an important role in therapeutic discovery and development. Biomarker selection, validation, and application are critical for several steps, such as target validation, assessments of safety and efficacy, pharmacodynamic or pharmacokinetic responses, patient selection, clinical endpoints, and understanding of the mechanism of disease progression and therapeutic intervention during the course of therapeutic developments. Successful application of validated biomarkers is the key strategy to improve the drug discovery and development towards new medical entities.

Form and presentations

The course is arranged over three days, and speakers are national and international key scientists from academia and pharmaceutical industries actively engaged in the field.

Target audiences and expected outcome

The seminar is designed to attract both clinicians and researchers in the field. PhD students, residents, clinical fellows, and graduate students are encouraged to participate.

Prerequisites

Basic understanding of drug development phases and principles of preclinical evaluations
