10 + 11 October. In DTU's High Tech Summit within "Smart Health Care and Food", Biopeople organises a track theme called "Biomarkers - the key to personal medicine". It will show that biomarkers can be a lot more than genes, eg. proteins, electrical signals, changes in pH-value or measurement of patient activity or behavior.

Your questions on biomarkers will be answered: Why are they important, how can they be used, which technologies can be used to measure them and what innovative biomarkers do we know from research and companies. Along with examples from the practical use within treatment of eg. epilepsy, diabetes and wounds.
