Symposium Spotlight: Biomarkers in MND – improving drug development and clinical trial design

Reading Time: 4 minutes Diagnosing disease faster, accurately predicting disease progression, assessing the ability of a new drug to reach its target – I think we’d all agree that these three things are essential requirements for treating all diseases. But how can we achieve this? The answer may lie in biomarkers. In his plenary talk at last year’s International…
