SAN FRANCISCO (GenomeWeb) – At Cambridge Healthtech Institute's Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference here this week, a pair of Boston-based researchers presented novel approaches for the detection of circulating nucleic acid biomarkers for potential use in cancer diagnosis and disease monitoring.

The scientists — Chen Song, a research fellow with Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School, and Leonora Balaj, a research fellow at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School — discussed their methods in the "PCR for Molecular Medicine" track on Monday.
