Life Science Live 2019

Life Science Live is an international event organized at Turku Fair and Congress Center (Finland) May 15–16, 2019. The new generation fair will bring together professionals and decision makers in biotechnology, pharmaceutical industry, as well as health and medical branches.

Turku region is host to a substantial biomedical cluster with over 100 big and small companies, two medicine and biotech oriented universities and a productive research & development scene.  More than 20 innovations have gone global from Turku. Now we need an international event to match.

The first ever Life Science Live will take place at Turku Fair and Congress center in May 2019. The event is designed to meet the needs of companies, professionals, researchers and students as well as buyers and investors.

Life Science Live seminars and presenters provide insight to the most recent trends in science and business. The hot topic of 2019 is artificial intelligence and its potential in healthcare and biotech. Preparations for a matchmaking event are also underway.

About program

Life Science Live is organized at the Turku Fair Center in cooperation with University of Turku, Åbo Akademi, Turku University of Applied Sciences. The event takes place simultaneously with the HealthBIO seminar organized by Health Turku. Healthtech Finland is one of the conference organizers of Life Science Live. This event includes also two-day long i-HD Conference (Improved Health Data).

Dipak Kalra, Laura Elo, Mocef Gabbouj and Olli Raitakari have confirmed their attendance to perform in the event.

Esiintyjät

Dipak Kalra, PhD, FRCGP, FBCS, is President of the European Institute for Innovation through Health Data. He plays a leading international role in research and development of electronic health record interoperability standards, data and privacy protection, interoperability business models and the reuse of EHRs for research. He has led multiple European projects in these areas, including Horizon 2020 and the IMI programme alongside pharma companies, hospitals and ICT companies.

Laura Elo, PhD, is Research Director  in Bioinformatics and Group Leader in Computational Biomedicine at Turku Centre for Biotechnology (University of Turku and Åbo Akademi University). Her multidisciplinary research group of more than 30 specialists develops computational tools and mathematical modelling methods for analyzing and interpreting data generated by modern high-throughput biotechnologies in a number of national and international research projects (e.g. Horizon 2020 and European Research Council ERC). The ultimate goal is to improve the diagnosis and treatment of complex diseases, such as diabetes and cancer.

Dr. Gabbouj is a Professor of Signal Processing at the Department of Signal Processing, Tampere University of Technology, Tampere, Finland, where he leads the Multimedia Research Group. Dr. Gabbouj is a Fellow of the IEEE, a member of the European Academy and the Finnish Academy of Science and Letters.

Professor Olli Raitakari is currently the Professor in Cardiovascular Medicine, Director of the Turku University Research Centre of Applied and Preventive Cardiovascular Medicine. He is coordinating two large Finnish studies into cardiovascular risk. In addition, he is currently the Principal Investigator of the STRIP Study housed at the University of Turku. Professor Raitakari has introduced the vascular epidemiology, the genetic epidemiology and the population metabolonomics approaches in these studies. His work has allowed the development, modification and validation of the techniques involved in the measurement of subclinical atherosclerotic changes in the vasculature. The techniques have included work on heart and arterial structure/function using a variety of non-invasive imaging methods. The research has contributed to the understanding of pre-clinical development of atherosclerosis in children and young adults, including the effects of diet, life-style, psychological traits, metabolic risk factors, inflammation, hormones and genetic markers.
