A recording is now available of the Scientific Liaison Coalition (SLC) Industry Perspective on Biomarkers Webinar that aired live on October 28, 2015.
This webinar features Eugene E. Marcantonio, MD, PhD, Associate Vice President, Translational Pharmacology at Merck Research Laboratories (MRL) and provides an overview of how biomarkers are used in clinical trials in the pharmaceutical industry. Most of the discussion focuses on fit for purpose biomarkers that have been developed in order to make critical decisions in early drug development. Dr. Marcantonio joined MRL in 2007 and has been involved in the early clinical development of a number of compounds in multiple disease areas and now is the lead for Infectious Diseases and Vaccines as well as for Immunology.
The recording of this webinar is posted on BDR Connection in the Educational Webinars File file, which houses several recordings of past webinars, including previous SLC Biomarker webinars.
