    • Martin Shaw
      Business Development Manager at AroCell AB
      Biography
        Between 1994-2015 he worked at EKF Diagnostics in Wales (formerly Argutus Medical) where he introduced and promoted a wide range of novel kidney and liver tests, including important biomarkers that are now being evaluated by the IMI (Innovative Medicines Initiative) and FDA as qualified for use in toxicological testing. He developed strong relationships with hospitals, clinical research organizations and pharmaceutical companies, including AstraZeneca, Sanofi Aventis, Pfizer, Novartis, Merck, Glaxo Smith Kline and Johnson and Johnson. From 1975-1992 Martin Shaw filled many technical and marketing roles at Pharmacia Diagnostics (now Thermo-Fisher). He and his coworkers developed and introduced the first commercial tests for neonatal hypothyroidism, celiac disease, and a range of novel biomarkers to monitor allergy and inflammation. Bringing testing close to the patient is important and Martin brings this experience from being Marketing Manager at Magnasense Technologies, Finland, where he introduced and promoted a novel point-of-care test system based on magnetically labelled antibodies. Martin has published several peer-reviewed articles on biomarkers and presented at many scientific congresses, including being guest speaker at the FDA.

      Drug Discovery 2018
      14 7 1340

      Despite the rapid pace of scientific advances that garner a better understanding of a myriad of diseases on their molecular level, modern drug discovery is a long, complex process. While on the one side, new medicines offer more manageable side effects, fewer hospitalizations, and increased productivity, each new drug is up against the scientific, technical, and regulatory challenges related to drug development

      As to be expected, the course of action for researching and developing new medicines is growing in difficulty and length. It can take anywhere from 10 or more years for a drug to reach the marketplace, toting a price tag of an estimated $2.6 billion. It is in this landscape that LabRoots is proud to announce its newest addition to the virtual event line up – Drug Discovery 2018!

      Industry leaders from around the world will join together and discuss the advancements, challenges and successes of discovery and developing new medicines during this free, two-day event. Topics to be discussed include:

      • GPCR Drug Discovery     

      • Biomarkers in early-stage drug development

      • Pharmacogenomics and Personalized Medicine     

      • Emerging Trends
