VANCOUVER, WA--(Marketwired - October 19, 2016) - Oasis Diagnostics®, an innovative biotechnology company focused on developing cutting edge tools for saliva sample acquisition and testing, announced that it will be co-hosting the annual North American Saliva Symposium (NASS) with the prestigious New York University College of Dentistry, in New York City, from December 9
This marks the 3
The annual North American Saliva Symposium was a long time concept turned reality in 2014 when CEO Dr. Paul Slowey (Oasis Diagnostics®) was introduced to the idea by neonatologist Jill Maron, MD, MPH (Associate Professor, Tufts University School of Medicine). This initial discussion led the pair to initiate a process that would blossom into a full-fledged meeting that would attract the finest minds in the fields of diagnostics, dentistry, medicine, and other fields. Plenary speaker Dr. David Wong, DMD, DMSc (University of California, Los Angeles), had this to say of the first NASS Conference. "Wonderful to see the academic science, basic and translational, as well as a strong industrial presence and interests in the clinical maturation of oral fluids for personalized/precision medicine."
Dr. Wong will be returning in 2016 to discuss one of the hottest topics in the diagnostic world: liquid biopsy. Liquid biopsy is a term coined to describe the analysis of bodily fluids for components that can be used as simple and viable alternatives to traditional tissue biopsy testing for the diagnosis of diseases, including cancers, diabetes, and others. While many have turned to blood samples for their liquid biopsy, Dr. Wong instead uses saliva for its multitude of advantages including rapid collection, simple storage and transportation, cost effectiveness, and, most importantly, clinical performance.
The North American Saliva Symposium will see Dr. Wong joined by a cadre of impressive researchers studying Zika Fever (Dr. Walter Siqueira, University of Western Ontario), Programmable Digital Biological Diagnostics (Dr. John McDevitt, NYU College of Dentistry), Metabolic Syndrome in Children and Adolescents (Dr. Phil Stashenko, Forsyth Institute), and many more.
The Conference will also feature a poster / abstract session and opportunities for sponsorship from interested organizations in the field.
