Upcoming Webinar: What are biomarkers and why are they important?

Session Description:

On a cellular level, each lymphoma has a heterogenous expression of numerous proteins which can indicate and characterize abnormal tumor development. With the advancements of scientific technology, novel biomarkers are continually being discovered, which was greatly improved the diagnosis of lymphoma, stratification for clinical trials, and the field of personalized medicine.
