EMBER Industry Symposium 2017

College Court Conference Centre, Leicester, UK, 01 Nov 2017

The East Midlands Breathomics Pathology Node (EMBER) is developing novel breath-based systems for molecular pathology. 

Hosted by the Leicester Precision Medicine Institute, the EMBER Industry Symposium will provide a forum for academia, practitioners from industry, and clinicians involved in breathomics and research across a wide range of clinical conditions including respiratory infections, cancers, respiratory disease such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and cardiovascular disorders such as heart failure.

The purpose of this event is to explore ideas and understand how breathomics can be used and developed as a non-invasive approach for diagnosis, phenotyping and stratifying patients.

The event will include presentations and workshops from EMBER academics and clinicians as well as key guest speakers from industry partners.

Our CEO Billy Boyle will be speaking at the event about our Breath Biopsy platform. For more information, download our free ebook Breath Biopsy - The Complete Guide.
