The Business and Economic Development of the Canton of Zurich and the Life Science Zurich Business Network are happy to announce the Life Science Zurich Impact Conference – “The Cause of Health” on February 3, 2020, at the Technopark Zurich

Registration will open in October, 2019.


AIM OF THE CONFERENCE
Life Science Zurich Impact - The Cause of Health in Zurich is a one-day multi-track meeting providing scientists from academia and industry a platform to present their life science projects to potential collaboration partners as well as investors.

THE CAUSE OF HEALTH
Medicine has largely focused on studying the cause of illness in search for cures. Although we have made dramatic advances in identifying specific causes of illness in individual patients, we know remarkably little how individuals stay healthy. Cause of health research differs from classical medical and clinical research since it relies on data from healthy individuals. The conference will address the opportunities and challenges which the ‘Cause of Health’ approach will offer from an ethical, research,commercial and healthcare viewpoint.

FORMAT
The conference includes keynotes, parallel sessions as well as an investor track and 1:1 partnering meetings.
Parallel sessions on the 4 P’s of Health – preventive, prescriptive, personalized and participatory – will focus on topics such as nutrition & exercise, diagnosis and biomedical imaging, citizen science, digital health, healty ageing and regenerative medicine.

HOW YOU CAN ACTIVELY PARTICIPATE AS A SPEAKER
Parallel sessions are aiming at speakers who are interested in finding partners for collaborations.
Investor sessions are aiming at speakers who are interested in finding an investor.
A startup company can participate at the investor and the parallel sessions.
