Event Overview:

In the discovery and investigation of novel biomarkers, tissue immunohistochemistry (IHC) studies are critical. The important question has been how to translate the technology into the clinical laboratory for patient testing once a biomarker target has been identified.

Dr. Nan Zhang, VP of Global Central Lab Services at Frontage Laboratories Inc., will provide a valuable update on the application of Tissue IHC in new biomarker development, selection between different types of IHC, and validation of the methodology to be used for patient testing in clinical trials.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Application of Tissue IHC in new biomarker development
  • IHCs Validation in a Clinical Laboratory
  • Selection between different types of IHCs

Who Should Attend:

  • Clinical Trial Study Sponsor Operation Leaders
  • Pharmaceutical R&D
  • Laboratory R&D
  • Laboratory Staff and Leaders
