Event description

Description

Welcome to the Advanced Tumor Diagnostics Discovery Day! This is a unique opportunity for discovery and dialogue between Alberta innovators, researchers and the health system, including patients, clinicians and administrators. This full day event is aimed at increasing the awareness of innovative solutions being developed in Alberta for advanced tumor diagnostics to improve patient care.

The event will provide members of Alberta Health Services' Cancer Strategic Clinical Network, along with other health system leaders and stakeholders to increase their understanding of diagnostic tools that are currently being researched or in the process of being commercialized. Tools that could accelerate early Cancer diagnosis.

This event also provides innovators and researchers the opportunity to gain feedback from a panel of investment, health system, legal and business advisors about how to progress their business plan and commercialization efforts.



Event Overview:
