Personalized Health Technologies 2020

A conference on personalized health tools, technologies & research in and around Switzerland

When? June 29 & 30, 2020

Where? ETH Zurich, Switzerland

Overview

The next steps in personalized health. This conference brings together experts from multiple disciplines to explore present and future directions in the field of personalized health technologies and translational research. The goal is to tackle challenges in chemical hit identification, lead development, molecular circuit analyses, clinical bioinformatics, and multivariate statistics, as well as their clinical application.

From patient samples to molecular read outs. Progress in the laboratory representation of clinical material has enabled novel possibilities for discovery and diagnostics with thus far unrivaled proximity to the patient. Advanced cell systems such as organoids allow for in-depth molecular profiling and functional studies as well as investigation of responses to chemical and therapeutic agents. Combined with high-throughput screening and chemical biology, empirical projects of very large scope have not only become conceivable but also present themselves with feasible turnaround time.

Integration of molecular modalities and global knowledge. The continuous development of next-generation sequencing and mass spectrometry measurements allow for high-resolution characterization of biomolecules derived from patient samples or mouse models of disease. While early challenges of storage and compute capacity have largely been addressed, present ones are the integration and combined analysis of multifaceted data, including public online resources.
