Welcome to the Basel Life Science Week 2016!

The conference is an international event that brings together researchers, investors, & policy makers from industry, academia, and not-for-profit institutions. Each year, representatives from more than 45 countries participate in advancing our current understanding and applying knowledge to progress the life sciences fields.

Basel Life Science week is an open platform, with the specific goal to catalyse the innovation process amongst creative and passionate individuals. The steering and programme committees invite you to immerse yourself into the programme and help facilitate innovative exchange of ideas and make new networks. We always welcome your ideas on how to make this conference experience better for you.

The Basel Life Science Week is becoming a great magnet for life science innovation. The 2016 programme will see a convergence of many great offering – which include: The DayOne programme on Precision Medicine from BaselArea.Swiss, the ILMAC Exhibition on Laboratory Equipment, and the Medical Devices and Diagnostics conference “Medtech&Pharma” - will all take place the same week. This synergy of events will be the most amazing event in life science and health space. You can access all these programmes from links on the Basel Life Science Week homepage (www.basellife.org).

One of the new themes for the 2016 programme is developing open standards for the implementation of Precision Medicine. This year, we will host 3 Forums to ascertain best practices in genomics data analysis, research database warehousing, and long-term data storage. Digital technology is advancing the delivery of precision medicine and the “Basel Agenda” programme will look at the future of medicine. Drug discovery has always relied on innovative technologies – and the Microfluidics will be in the spotlight this year. Forums on human health (Aging and Infectious diseases); advanced technologies for drug discovery (Stem Cells, Peptide Therapeutics, Protein Production), and focused sessions on Synthetic Biology, Medicinal Chemistry, and Synergy of combination therapies will once again take place.

The MipTec Exhibition on Drug Discovery brings together over 100 vendors to showcase cutting edge technologies that help advance R&D in the life sciences. In 2016, the Product Innovation Award has been expanded to recognize outstanding achievement in the development of these technologies. The Innovation-Avenue is a platform for showcase start-ups in life sciences – and this programme has been extended to enable more start-ups to participate. The programme committee is putting together a dynamic evening for companies to network broadly with the larger community of researchers together with the ILMAC Exhibition on Laboratory Equipment.

For the community, we offer many resources to explore career and personal development. The Jumpstarting Innovations is a day long programme for budding entrepreneurs and Venture Capitalist to meet and exchange ideas. Career training workshops, by renowned Career Coaching professionals, will run before and during the main program of the conference.

The conference continues to evolve and we are in deep gratitude to the countless volunteers involved in the programme development. Our heartfelt thanks to the City of Basel, BaselArea / INet / Swiss Innovation Park, Messe Basel, and our many sponsors for their continuing support.

We look forward to meeting you at Basel Life Science Week 2016!
