In conjunction with the ATTC network, a team from the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Newcastle In Vitro Diagnostics Co-operative (NIHR Newcastle MIC) presented  their work  on supporting the development of companion diagnostics.

Advanced therapies often have a very personalised treatment nature to them and therefore lend themselves to a companion diagnostic, but many companies don’t know the regulatory pathway for these tests. Topics covered in this talk include why  there is a need for companion diagnostics to be co-developed with a treatment, the steps of the development pathway as well as the support that the NIHR Newcastle MIC  can offer to partners who are developing these tests.

This presentation will be of interest to anyone who is developing advanced therapies and considering the generation of a companion diagnostic test.
