Welcome

International Symposium of Precision Medicine Based on Liquid Biopsies “from Detection to Dissection”


 

Dear colleagues and friends,

It is our great pleasure to inform you that we will be hosting the FIRST INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM on LIQUID BIOPSIES 2016 (ISLB).The ISLB-2016 will take place on September 15th-16th, 2016 in the city of Granada, Spain.

Over the past few years, liquid biopsies have grown in importance as they can be used for genetic and phenotypic characterization of cancer tissues. In addition, their non-invasive nature allows repeat sampling to monitor genetic changes over time during tumor progression and treatments. The ISLB-2016 will provide a platform for presentations, discussions and planning across all aspects of cancer monitoring, progression and clinical management.

Researchers, public health practitioners, clinicians and life science professionals should not miss this opportunity to discuss, debate and address key issues which have an impact on cancer.

We invite you to submit your abstract to be considered by our Advisory Committee for presentation at the ISLB-2016. Many experts in this field, all over the world, have already accepted to participate and share their points of view and experience on this very hot topic in Cancer Research.

Covering a two-day span, the GRANADA-ISLB 2016 includes a plenary session plus six sessions divided by topics and 3 mini-sessions, as well as a visit to GENYO (please see the Preliminary Program for details).

Finally, we should not finish this invitation without mentioning our city, Granada; this is one of the most visited places in the world with beautiful monuments as the Alhambra, the Cathedral or the Albayzin neighbourhood, not to mention the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the Alpujarra or the Mediterranean coast and beaches.

We look forward to welcoming you all,
