Global Cluster Biomarker Directory launched at the BIO Convention

World met in San Diego

The Council of European BioRegions launched its Global Cluster Biomarker Directory ( online and in print at a dedicated 2 hour workshop at BIO in San Diego, with over 200 profiles from companies and research groups from 40 clusters in 19 countries world-wide.

The online directory has been categorised by disease application and is also fully searchable.  Additional profiles are welcome from companies and clusters, as the programme grows in the coming years.



The BIO workshop saw more than 80 participants with presentations from DG Research regarding the important SME Instrument that can fund biomarker validation for clinical decision making, followed by 12 presentations from SMEs and clusters on biomarker activities.  All slides are available for download from a dedicated workshop page on the website here.



CEBR congratulates all the clusters that built the directory and also thanks its member clusters that sponsored the programme (Biocat, BioM, Biowin, Genopole, Health Capital Berlin Barndenburg, Luxinnovation, Technology Park Heidelberg and Stockholm-Uppsala Life Science), making the workshop possible.

The launch is just the start!  CEBR will continue to add company and research profiles and will establish a model to maintain and grow the Directory plus supporting activities to build cluster, research and business partnerships.



Visit in order to see how your cluster can be involved and bring your biomarker SMEs to a global biomarker family.
