Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Eighth Annual
Molecular Diagnostics for Infectious Disease
August 24-25, 2016 | Grand Hyatt Washington | Washington, DC
Novel molecular technologies continue to evolve and improve, helping cut the time it takes to diagnose and treat infectious disease. The Molecular Diagnostics for Infectious Disease conference, now in its 8th year in Washington, D.C., will continue to showcase emerging technologies presented from both the clinical and research perspectives. The development of point-of-care molecular assays for the detection of infectious diseases will be featured along with the advancement of molecular testing for respiratory diseases, in the management of sepsis and for emerging and re-emerging human viral diseases. Technologies, including NGS for detection of ID will be highlighted as well as the important role played by clinical and healthcare outcome data in the evaluation of molecular diagnostic tests. Novel diagnostics to detect resistance mechanisms and to guide definitive therapeutic decisions have the potential to significantly improve antibiotic use. Several talks will cover antibiotic stewardship.
The meeting will cover a range of topics including:
- Point-of-care testing for ID
- Rapid testing for respiratory, viral diseases
- Management of sepsis
- Antibiotic stewardship
- NGS for the detection of ID
