Science for health presents: Peter Peumans
Science for health features several high-level keynote speakers. In addition to Carl June, a pioneer of CAR-T therapy, Peter Peumans from imec will share the power of chip technology. He heads the life sciences technology program at imec, a world leader in the R&D of nanoelectronics and digital technologies. Several imec projects have the potential to greatly impact cell therapy. With the first prototypes available, these disruptive technologies are ready to contribute to the success of innovative therapies like CAR-T.
In treatments where a single cell is enough to kill or cure you, a precise cell selection process is essential. Imec’s micro-chips make it possible to screen large numbers of cells, before and after engineering, to select the most potent ones. This will have the benefit of both lowering the required dose and reducing the weeks-long manufacturing process to mere days.
Get a sneak peek into how microchips can benefit cell therapy in the latest BioVox article, and join us on September 11 in Brussels to learn all about imec’s new tools.
Science for health: creating research connections
Health science is about the patient; about preventing illness and saving lives. Collaboration and out-of-the-box thinking accelerate progress. Science for health is a brand-new yearly event, connecting researchers and clinicians, promoting inspired solutions to health challenges. The first edition will focus on cell therapy, for which Belgium presents a leading international hub.
Get inspired by our speakers! Meet other senior scientists, executives and business developers from academia, research institutes, biotechnology companies and pharma: get connected and join forces.
The first edition of ‘Science for Health’, will take place in SQUARE on September 11, 2019. This venue is located in the heart of Brussels, within walking distance from the Central Station, and the car park Albertine. Doors open at 9:30am. This one-day conference focuses on Cell Therapy and features international and Belgian Cell Therapy pioneers.
