Thank you to all who made this year’s Future Diagnostics conference a great success. 


 This 2 day meeting was held at the University of California, Irvine campus was sponsored and hosted by the Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of California, Irvine and Cambridge Healthtech Institute.  The delegation was made up of over 150 delegates from the diagnostics industry and leading academic institutions that are developing novel methods that can be used for future diagnostic platforms.  This conference has proven to be the place to hear about early stage technologies and platforms that can be commercialized for innovative diagnostics.  It will be expanded next year to 3 days, and will include future therapeutics.  If you would like to be a part of next year’s event, contact Christina Lingham at clingham@healthtech.com.
