Biomarker discovery requires highly assured identification of a biomarker with real-time quantitative information to indicate which proteins are altering to a statistically pertinent degree in response to disease. The discovery of  biomarkers has developed new strategies starting from the initial steps. In the first stage of biomarker discovery proceedings, investigation depends upon mass spectrometry techniques to make unbiased, semiquantitative analysis of changes between healthy and diseased states. The slope of probable  biomarkers generated in the discovery stage is to be further substantiated due to the high false positive rate. It is done through supplemental more targeted and quantitative mass spectrometry techniques, such as immuno affinity peptide enrichment.

The probable Molecular Biomarkers identified in discovery section need to be validated by using larger sample sets casing a broad section of patient troops. To avoid a potential bottleneck associated with taking a large number of candidates to validation, a verification step is engaged to monitor potential molecular biomarkers to ensure that only the top quality biomarkers from the discovery phase are taken into the expensive validation stage. A high throughput workflow with a minimum of sample preparation is required in the verification stage which provides both high specificity and high sensitivity. Furthermore, the confirmation that a particular methodology is suitable to be used in the biomarker validation phase is given in verification stage. These advanced strategies can be sited at molecular biomarkers conference.

Biomarker testing is a group of tests that looks for the molecular signs of health so that doctors can plan the best care. Biomarker testing can also be called as genetic testing or molecular testing. Molecular biomarkers, a foundation of precision oncology, are very important in management of breast cancer, gastro-esophageal cancer and non-small cell lung cancer. Testing practices are intensely deliberated, influencing diagnostic quality and affecting pathologists, oncologists and patients.

The ability to look at a patient individually will provide a more precise cancer diagnosis and specific treatment plan. The genetic information from individuals can then be used to effectively treat them, by finding the variations that can account for possible diseases. An individual’s genetic make-up also plays a large part in their extent of response to a certain treatment, and hence, having the knowledge of their genetic content can alter the type of treatment they receive. These approaches are intended to identify individualized patient benefits of therapies, minimize the risk of toxicity and reduce the cost of treatment.

Self-knowledge is the key ingredient in successful entrepreneurship. Molecular Biomarkers conferences aim to bring together all existing and promising bio entrepreneurs to share capabilities and present new novelties and challenges in biomarker community. Over a million companies are started in the world each year, in which about 5–10 of them are classified into high technology companies. All the Pharmaceutical and Biotech companies are majorly involved in the biomarkers production. Whirling ideas into business ventures is complex and the opportunity appreciation step is critical in new project creation. This idea in the entrepreneur's perception of the association between the invention and final product is converted into a business prototype that describes how the venture generate revenue or provide an suitable yield to the prospective investors. Clinical Research on biomarkers is multifaceted and rapidly expanding and requires an expert knowledge to comprehend the value of the advances and its competitive situation in the industry. Even though scientists are stereotypically the founders of biotech companies, studies indicate that the most effective start-ups are founded by a team which often has two to three individuals with mixed backgrounds like clinical research and Clinical Data Management along with considerable industry experience and a very strong market and product focus at establishment.
