Growing an ear in a petri dish, customizing drug treatments thanks to personalized genetic information, acquiring precise information on tumor size, location and composition and many more things are now possible thanks to advanced methodologies in molecular biology, genetics, tissue and computer engineering. But what is behind these fancy news, how is the research in life sciences actually done, and how do we handle new information and knowledge?
In the Intellectual Tool on Life Sciences, we will discuss the fundamentals of molecular biology, personalized medicine and tissue engineering and will apply these concepts in case studies. The program also includes a practical couse in molecular biology and guided tours through lab facilities at the University of Zurich. The keynote lecture is held by Prof. Dr. Stefan Weber from the ARTORG Center for Biomedical Engineering Research at the University of Bern. He will share his experience in clinical applications of image guided therapy.
The goal of this IT tool is to give you an overview of the life sciences field and to enable you to engage in future debates on related topics.
