This one-day online Symposium will address these issues from multiple perspectives, enhancing cross-silo discussions and knowledge sharing on ways that POC device developers are overcoming hurdles in implementation:
Accelerated growth of cross-disciplinary teams supports the intersection of biomedicine, bioengineering, biophysics, physical and biological chemistry, nanotechnology and physiology, all while leveraging broad applications in detecting, screening and monitoring diseases. Fresh data and solutions are enabling drug development, new discoveries, and advances that are inexpensive yet highly effective.
Full implementation of POC diagnostic devices has frequently been stymied by a number of factors, including the lack of a clear regulatory process, private sector interest, standards and ready means of distribution. As a result, the millions of dollars spent on research and development of these cutting edge devices rarely make it to the field where they are needed the most.
