Methods for Evaluating Medical Tests and Biomarkers

19 July 2016 Wolfson Centre, Medical School, University of Birmingham, Edgbaston, Birmingham B15 2TT

This international symposium attracts researchers actively involved in the development, evaluation or regulation of biomarkers, diagnostic modalities or other medical tests. The symposium provides a forum for disseminating knowledge at the forefront of current research, and for stimulating dialogue that will propel future thought and endeavours to tackle the methodological and practical complexities facing the medical diagnostics field today. 

The 2016 event is specifically aimed at bringing together researchers from the diverse reaches of test evaluation, from in vitro test developers, industry and regulatory representatives, through to methodologists, guideline developers and practising clinicians, in the hope of improving current understanding through knowledge exchange, and forging our diverse experiences and perspectives to delineate the future direction of diagnostic test research. 

Taking place over two days, the symposium takes the form of thematic plenary sessions. Each session will be introduced by an invited speaker who is a leading international expert in the field, followed by several submitted oral presentations.
