Biomarkers to track down disease


The European Medicines Agency hopes that biomarkers will eventually contribute to faster public access to new medicines and has been taking various measures to help make this vision a reality, while research keeps moving forward. With this edition of the Research*EU magazine, the CORDIS editorial team wanted to highlight the potential of biomarkers by presenting some of the latest FP7 project results in this field. Early results from some Horizon 2020 projects funded under an SME Instrument call, specifically dedicated to the clinical validation of existing biomarkers and/or diagnostic devices, are presented.

This special feature is followed by eight sections providing insights into biology and medicine, social sciences and humanities, energy and transport, the environment, IT and telecommunications, industrial technologies, food and agriculture and physics and mathematics, along with a list of upcoming events hosted by or involving EU-funded research projects.
