Novel ways of meeting in life science

Novel ways of meeting in life science
 

This autumn will see novel ways of meeting, thought out by Biopeople cluster managers to engage and encourage active involvement and interaction.

High Tea and Open Space are meant to be ‘experimental events’ where knowledge sharing and matchmaking are facilitated by ways of meeting quite new to traditional academic settings in life science. These events are anything but the traditional one-way symposia, instead encouraging active involvement and interaction.

Both types of events will take place in the Maersk Tower.

Profile of the month: Flow Robotics

Profile of the month: Flow Robotics
 

New item on the website with the opening profile: Flow Robotics with answers to three questions on need, solution and what makes the company unique. Flow Robotics are creating lab pipetting robots for simpler tasks. "There are still time-consuming handheld liquid handling tasks in most laboratories, as many of these tasks either are too small or change too frequently to make it worth automating them with existing technology. Our robot can be handled by anyone. No need for programming expertise and long implementation.

10 + 11 October. In DTU's High Tech Summit within "Smart Health Care and Food", Biopeople organises a track theme called "Biomarkers - the key to personal medicine". It will show that biomarkers can be a lot more than genes, eg. proteins, electrical signals, changes in pH-value or measurement of patient activity or behavior.

Your questions on biomarkers will be answered: Why are they important, how can they be used, which technologies can be used to measure them and what innovative biomarkers do we know from research and companies. Along with examples from the practical use within treatment of eg. epilepsy, diabetes and wounds.
