Aims, contents and method of the course

In this lecture, primarily clinical biomarkers are presented and the importance of stratification markers which allow individualized therapies. First, basic questions will be answered: What is a biomarker, what are biomarkers used for, what is a “good” biomarker, how such biomarkers are validated, and how good are established ones? Furthermore, the kind of problems that are encountered when a new biomarker shall be determined – especially in the field of cancer research – will be discussed.
