We thank our sponsors for the kind support of the e:Med Meeting:
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.
For more than 20 years, Illumina has aspired to improve human health by unlocking the power of the genome. Our initial products enabled researchers to explore DNA in an entirely new way. Now, through collaboration and innovation with scientists and lab directors, we are driving genomic breakthroughs with whole-genome and whole-exome sequencing. While the rate of progress continues to accelerate exponentially as we move towards precision medicine, we have only just begun to discover the true impact of genomics. This realization, and the discoveries we know lie ahead in microbiology, oncology, agrigenomics, complex diseases, and beyond, are what inspire us to push the boundaries of our imagination and drive innovation.
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.
