Exosomes and Liquid Biopsies Asia 2016

This event which will be held in Taipei, Taiwan, will focus on an exciting area of research: Liquid (biofluid) biopsy development driven by circulating biomarkers such as circulating nucleic acids, circulating extracellular vesicles (such as exosomes) and circulating tumor cells (CTCs).

Welcome to Exosomes and Liquid Biopsies Asia 2016. This conference is being held in one of the hubs of trade and commerce in Asia -- Taipei, Taiwan. Just a short flight from most business destinations in Asia and a nonstop flight from the United States and Europe, Taipei is an excellent meeting place and venue to bring together academics and industry participants from Asia, Europe and the United States to focus on an exciting area of research: Liquid (biofluid) biopsy development driven by circulating biomarkers such as circulating nucleic acids, circulating extracellular vesicles (such as exosomes) and circulating tumor cells (CTCs).

This conference brings together key opinion leaders, established researchers as well as junior investigators for oral presentations, poster presentations as well as an exhibition to bring to the researchers the most up-to-date technologies and products from companies to accelerate their research.

Academics from across Asia, Europe and the United States as well as Industry Participants from companies large and small would find this two-day conference extremely valuable as a learning and networking experience.
