Life Science Technology Event

26 Nov 2013
09:00 to 16:00
Holiday Inn, Leiden

FHI and DTL are organizing the 1st Dutch Life Science Technology event to present the Dutch strength to apply advanced technologies in life science research and development. The aim of the event is to exchange the latest developments and trends in technology application among technology suppliers, developers, and life scientists. The focus will be on the latest developments in technology areas such as next generation sequencing, metabolic profiling and proteome analysis; and –of course - the integration and interpretation of the big data that evolve from the application of these technologies.

The programme offers a selection of collaborative projects between academia and industry; gives insight in the technological needs of principal investigators; and demonstrates the promises of the latest technologies applied in scientific research projects. In two parallel sessions the programme will zoom in on exemplary projects in the Health and Nutrition sectors, both with speakers from academia, medical centres and companies.

Confirmed speakers

  • Joris Veltman, UMC St Radboud
  • Thomas Hankemeier, Leiden University
  • Ron Kerkhoven, Nederlands Kanker Instituut
  • Robert Hall, WUR
  • Peter van der Spek, Erasmus MC
  • Michael Muller, Wageningen UR
  • Ben van Ommen, TNO
