Demonstrate Clinical Utility. Impact Patient Care.

The 5th Annual World CTC Summit enables oncology drug developers and biomarker researchers to discover cutting edge data, industry-defining strategies and expand their network to gain exclusive insight into the future of circulating biomarker research.

Through an interactive and solution-led conference agenda, attendees will fully understand how to best harness circulating biomarkers as powerful diagnostic tools to overcome tumour heterogeneity and drive forward real time clinical development of targeted cancer therapies.

Why Attend World CTC?

  1. Be the first to discover unpublished data from the latest cutting edge CTC culturing research coming out of Mass Gen, Stanford University and Baylor College of Medicine
  2. Gain the latest insights on advanced molecular characterization techniques to yield untold information about the metastatic process with results from MD Anderson Cancer Centre and Weill, Cornell Medical College
  3. Understand the dynamic process of EMT and the impact for your CTC research going forward with ground-breaking research from Mass Gen
  4. Learn how MD Anderson and MIT are pioneering best practises for developing chemosensitivity assays and how you can use this knowledge to better predict treatment responses
  5. Get unrivalled access to the latest clinical trial results months before they are released and get the unique opportunity to directly quiz the drug developers in our question and answer sessions
  6. Critically compare and evaluate the latest techniques in capture and characterization with our new live technology demonstrations with all of the most innovative technology providers under one roof
  7. Make an impact on patient diagnosis and prognosis by learning how to effectively use exosomes, cfDNA, and miRNA with an entire track packed with the latest advances in circulating biomarker research

Success within the circulating biomarker industry centers around effective collaboration and trusting partnerships between drug developers and specialist technology providers. As such, gone are the days of repetitive powerpoint presentations as the World CTC Summit agenda promotes interaction and audience engagement via:

  • Keynote interviews & formal debates
  • Question Time panel discussions
  • Breakout Roundtables
  • Practical Workshops
  • Mastermind Sessions
  • Formal Networking Lunches
  • Speakers corner
