InFLAMES Corporate Corner – Novel Technologies to Improve Human Health

Welcome to the InFLAMES Research Flagship’s Corporate Corner titled Novel Technologies to Improve Human Health on Thursday May 11th, 2023 at 11:45–16:00. The event will be held in Cave Theatre, Visitor and Innovation Centre Joki, Lemminkäisenkatu 12b, Turku. The event starts with lunch at 11:45 and you are welcome to the networking event at Sokos Hotel Kupittaa after the official programme from 16:00.

In recent years, various novel technologies have shown their potential as powerful tools in the quest to improve human health. These technologies have the ability to revolutionise the way we diagnose, treat, and prevent diseases, allowing us to unlock new insights into the complexities of the human body and develop more effective therapies for a wide range of illnesses. As such, the exploration and development of these novel technologies remain at the forefront of efforts to advance human health and well-being. The InFLAMES Corporate Corner delves into this subject and presents different solutions from our speakers in this area. We have a great list of speakers from InFLAMES, Brinter, Finnadvance, Finnish Red Cross Blood Service, Gilead, ImaginAb, and Olink.

All interested parties are welcome. SING UP HERE! (closes on May 3)
