Medicine-related Research: From molecules to bodies

Postponed to Autumn 2020

May 25th to 26th, 2020 at the HZB campus in Berlin-Adlershof

This Medicine-related Research workshop is a part of the series of HZB foresight workshops.

In this series HZB fosters discussions of future projects and research activities in strong interaction with current and future users from universities, research institutes, and industry.

To date 38 measuring stations are arranged around the synchrotron storage ring BESSY II@HZB, providing excellent experimental conditions to a wide and versatile scientific community. In addition to solving major challenges in energy, earth & environment, matter, and key technologies, many of them serve medicine-related research, too.

Together with universities, research centres and industrial partners, highly important medical topics will be in the focus as major topics of the workshop:

However, this Foresight Workshop will not only show the current medical research and experimental possibilities at BESSY II@HZB and other synchrotron sources; in a vivid dialog about future science in this field, it is rather dedicated to develop perspectives as well as to formulate expectations and requirements for successful experiments at our facility in the near future and in preparation of the successor source BESSY III.

A brainstorming, idea-development session addresses current and - equally important – future synchrotron users, by showing actual possibilities and by taking up their suggestions for cutting edge infrastructures and scientific environments. The discussion shall foster collaborations and will substantiate the complementarity of laboratory experiments and investigations at the different light sources in Europe. In this context it will elaborate recommendations for BESSY III.

HZB kindly invite you to join this workshop on Medicine-related Research and to start or intensify a vivid dialogue with us about future science as well as your expectations and requirements for successful experiments at our facility.

Participation in the workshop on Medicine-related Research: From molecules to bodies is free of charge.
The registration deadline is on May 4th.
