Biomarkers are employed in the diagnosis and management of endocrine diseases, in risk assessment for disease development/progression and evaluation of risks forcomplications. The symposium ‘Translating biomarkers into clinical endocrinology – analytes, assays and algorithms’ brings together clinical practitioners, clinician-researchers, and basic as well as translational scientists engaged in the improvement of diagnostic assays, and in the identification of novel biomarkers in endocrinology. Furthermore, the symposium has a focus on supporting cross-disciplinary collaborations and facilitating research into the implementation of novel biomarkers and biomarker panels in clinical practice.


Date: 2-3 May 2023
Place: Medicon Valley Alliance, Ørestaden, Copenhagen  


The symposium is intended for and expected to be of interest to clinical practitioners, clinician-researchers, and basic as well as translational research scientists at all career levels and working within any field of endocrinology and metabolism or having an interdisciplinary research profile.

We encourage the submission of abstracts for short talks and poster sessions. Participants will be selected based on the quality and relevance of their work.

Please note that you are not guaranteed a seat if you do not meet the target group requirements. Priority is given to participants employed at Danish or Swedish research and health institutions or life science industry, but a number of seats are reserved for participants employed at research and health institutions or in the life science industry abroad. If the event is overbooked, the DDEA reserves its right to select participants based on the defined requirements.


This symposium supports the meeting of biochemists, molecular biologists, clinicians and clinical scientists, promotes collaboration and facilitates further research within biomarker translation to enhance clinical endocrinology for the benefit of patients.

The talks will cover several aspects of biomarker translation: biochemical and molecular analytes,    assays employed for the measurements of these, as well as how machine learning algorithms may improve the combination of measured analytes.

The symposium has a clear educational purpose and integrates early-career scientists by offering them the opportunity to present their research. These short presentations will be selected based on the submission of abstracts. In addition, the symposium invites selected companies, within diagnostics relevant to endocrinology, for short presentations of novel assays and methodologies.
