HMG’s vision - "enabling physicians to prescribe the appropriate drug with the right dose at the right time for the right patient. Fast, easy and mobile"
HMG Systems Engineering GmbH (Fürth, Germany) is a SME focused on IT-based innovations. Business activities range from comprehensive IT based systems engineering services for well-known international companies to our medical decision support system - the PGXperts Platform. Our Platform aims to bring "precision medicine" into the every day clinical practice. With the “InteraktionsCheck” including pharmacogenetics, physicians are able to decide who needs a pharmacogenetics test, increasing safety in pharmacotherapy. The report PerforM (personalized information for medication) presents the individual patient’s pharmacogenetics profile with its clinical consequences, and a drug interaction check. Our PGXperts Platform was placed second at the PerMediCon, December 2016 and a clinical pilot (100 patients) has been performed in 2016/2017.
LIFE & BRAIN GmbH is a biomedical and neurscientific technology platform founded in 2002 by the University of Bonn and Bonn Medical Center.
LIFE & BRAIN’s mission is to close the gap between academic research and business to develop new strategies for the diagnosis and therapy of nervous system disorders. As an innovation center in the field of biomedicine, LIFE & BRAIN brings together expertise in genomic research, transgenic animals, stem cell biology and neurocognition to deliver novel products for disease modeling, early diagnosis, compound development and tissue regeneration.
The National Institute for Science Communication (NaWik) is a non‐profit company, established in 2012. NaWik stakeholders are the Klaus Tschira Foundation and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, KIT.
Science is an important part of our culture and scientific findings influence the future development of society. The vision of NaWik is to improve the information flow from academic research to the public with the goal of a more scientifically literate society. For that purpose, the NaWik trains scientists to communicate their intentions, findings and issues to a wider audience and engage with society for a dialog.
NaWik seminars are one or two day long attendance courses. Participants work in small groups with emphasis on hands‐on‐exercises and a high level of practical relevance. The seminars are led by experienced science journalists and communicators and can be booked nationwide. In addition to our presence seminars, we offer workshops, talks and e‐learning courses.
