It is a great pleasure to invite you to the International Workshop “Stratified and Translational Medicine - from Basic Science to Clinical Practice” organized in Kraków between 13th – 17th of April 2015. We are convinced that this conference will give the participants a unique opportunity to better understand and discuss the importance of stratified medicine, which is currently the main potential beneficiary of “-omics” technologies.
Stratification of patients to appropriately “tailored” treatments, based on genetic, metabolic and possibly other biomarkers has been providing an exceptionally powerful tools in cancer which are now extending to cardiovascular disease, immune mediated disorders and other areas such as dentistry.
Translational medicine is searching for common points between basic science and clinical medicine, aiming to efficiently translate recent basic science findings to clinical practice and use in the improvement of population health.
Therefore the main aim of our workshop is to provide participants most up-to date knowledge in the fields of Stratified and Translational Medicine. Theoretical lectures by world leading specialists and renowned scientists will be complemented by practical methods oriented course and “hands on” workshops in our Translational Medicine Laboratory.
Our International Faculty comprises of world-class scientists whose research has for many years been focused on translational aspects of their respective fields. They will teach us about the most efficient ways of designing and conducting translational studies in medical basic and clinical sciences using the examples of their own forefront research.
The Workshop will consist of 3 parts:
The broad array of issues presented within the Knowledge Exchange Programme ranging from cardiac, through immune and metabolic disorders as well as dentistry will provide a spectrum of interesting topics for a wide audience, and we believe that Krakow – one of the most magical cities in Europe – will create a unique atmosphere for exchange of ideas.
