Scientific Symposium will be making its debut at Labvolution.
The Scientific Symposium at Labvolution will be focusing on key issues in the life sciences. Accordingly, a high level of visitor demand is anticipated. "We are delighted that Labvolution is hosting the Scientific Symposium," said Bernd Heinold, project manager for Labvolution in the Deutsche Messe AG team. "Labvolution's mission is to be the trade fair home to both industry and science – we bring academia and industry together."

Three topics will be on the agenda: The first is molecular cell biology. The processes within a cell are highly complex and finely coordinated with each other. Everything that is understood at molecular level helps to quickly identify the causes and processes of diseases and to develop targeted drugs for prevention and cure. Topics at this session will include "High-resolution microscopy for neurodegenerative diseases" and the "Dynamics of protein folding".

The origin of all cellular processes is the genome – this applies to all life, including humans. Directly targeting the genome, for example in model organisms, helps scientists to research cellular processes, develop agricultural crops and even cure genetic diseases. Where can, may and should genome editing, with its targeted method, be used advantageously? These and other questions will be addressed in the Genome Editing part of the program.

The third part is devoted to microbiome research. In recent years, biomedical research has shown that the microbiome (all the bacteria in an organism) is of crucial importance for health and well-being. The role played by the human microbiome in the supply of nutrients, programming of the immune system and resistance to pathogenic microbes should not be underestimated. Various research approaches will be presented here as well as possible therapeutic approaches.
