A world without any diseases – science fiction or a reality? One thing is certain – we are getting closer to it and it starts in the lab with the scientists using the latest cutting edge technologies.
In 1900, the average life expectancy in Sweden was around 53. Today some claim that we shortly live to be 150. Researchers at Karolinska Institutet have recently found a new method for finding substances that prevent aging. The method has created a new way to interpret the cell’s own information in the transcriptome.
The latest research findings made by scientists at Umeå University shows that some severe cancers can be predicted by biomarkers through a simple blood-test up to 25 years before the disease debuts. Prediction of any disease before symptoms occur, by detecting bio-markers or using next generation gene-sequencing, are two key-factors for creating a world free from any illness. However life style factors are still of great significance for a healthy life.
The latest in cell biology, synthetic biology, precision medicine, gene-edtiting/genomics, proteomics and the latest of ”omics” – metabolomics are some of the topics that will be highlighted at the 7th edition of our scientific international partnering event Bioscience – Research through Innovative Technologies taking place in Stockholm at Karolinska Institutet in beautiful Aula Medica.
Date: November 10th 2020
Time: 8:30 – 17:00
Venue: Aula Medica, Karolinska Institutet, Nobels väg 6, 171 65 Solna
The one-on-one meeting system will open 2 weeks prior to the event and is free of charge. Make sure you are registered for such meetings well in advance!
Important target groups are researchers, PI’s, and professors but also lab technicians, biomedical analysts, lab equipment procurement officers and pharmaceutical industry staff. Some 300 visitors and 25 exhibitors are expected and the meeting will be covered by the media. The event is free of charge for delegates and lunch will be offered thanks to our partners.
The conference will be moderated by:
Sarah Lidé, Senior Strategy and Project Manager, Medicon Valley Alliance
