The Biomarkers Consortium is a public-private biomedical research partnership managed by the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) that endeavors to discover, develop and seek regulatory approval for biological markers (biomarkers) to support new drug development, preventative medicine and medical diagnostics.


The Biomarkers Consortium is helping create a new era of precision medicine, with more highly predictive markers that have an impact during a patient's illness or lifespan. Its goal is to combine the forces of the public and private sectors to accelerate the development of biomarker-based technologies, medicines and therapies for prevention, early detection, diagnosis and treatment of disease.
