Mentoring Day

Date: Sunday 15th September

Time: 8:30am – 3:30pm

Venue: Hall E1, Adelaide Convention Centre, Adelaide, Australia

There is nothing like good advice from people who share your career path. Whether you’re just join the lab or have been with the same professor for many years, sometimes you just need advice, or maybe you need to hear how someone else dealt with a similar work problem or solved an issue. During the Mentoring Day we provide a positive environment, creates a learning culture and promote personal and professional development. Let’s us coach you to manage more effectively, speak more articulately, and how to market yourself through networking and do not forget about work/life balance and self-perception. Please join us and see yourself.

Cancer Biomarkers: The Things You Should Consider When Working on Biomarkers

Date: Sunday 15th September

Time: 12:30pm - 3:30pm

Venue: Riverbank Room 5, Adelaide Convention Centre, Adelaide, Australia

Registration: No charge, however, registration is required.

Biomarker research requires a knowledge-driven environment, in which investigators generate, contribute, manage and analyze data available from a variety of sources and technological platforms. Discovering cancer biomarkers is a relatively easy process as judged by the number of papers published; more than 45,000 publications in 2019, and 5000 when limited to cancer biomarkers and early detection. However, translating these discoveries into useful clinical assays continues to be difficult. To date, less than 24 cancer biomarkers have been approved by the FDA and most of these are for monitoring the response to therapy. The learning objective of the workshop would be to understand issues related to biospecimens, statistical designs, experimental plan and data interpretation toward robust and reproducible biomarkers that can meet regulatory requirements.
