Managing the Use and Dissemination of Information about Biomarkers: The Importance of Incentive Structures

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  01 January 2021

Abstract

The use of biomarkers holds great promise for the development of new therapeutics and the acceleration of clinical research. However, biomarkers must be validated — a complex and costly endeavor. Importantly, biomarker validation is meaningfully shaped by economic and policy-driven incentives.
