Session Abstract

Session Synopsis: Liquid Biopsy continues to generate interest among scientists and physicians, being easier to use for early diagnosis or when access to tissue is difficult. Adoption of the technology is slow, and the concentration of measurable biomarkers can vary from sample to sample. This session will discuss ways of breaking through the barriers to adoption, and the potential value to be gained through liquid biopsies.
