Life Science Zurich Impact Conference
THE CAUSE OF HEALTH
Monday 3 February 2020, at the Technopark Zurich

It is in human’s innate interest to stay healthy, both mentally and physically, as long as possible. However, medicine has largely focused on studying the cause of illness in search for cures. Although we have made dramatic advances in identifying specific causes of illness in individual patients, we know remarkably little how individuals stay healthy. Cause of health research differs from classical medical and clinical research since it relies on data from healthy individuals. They play a central role in this research approach since only they can aggregate their different data and authorize access for research.

The conference includes keynotes and parallel sessions as well as investor sessions and 1:1 partnering meetings.

Parallel sessions on the 4 P’s of Health – preventive, prescriptive, personalized and participatory – as well as an investor track will focus on topics such as nutrition & exercise, diagnosis and biomedical imaging, citizen science, digital health, healthy ageing and regenerative medicine.

Life Science Zurich Impact Conference
Translational Medicine in Zurich
22 January 2018, at the Technopark Zurich

The first Life Science Zurich Impact conference took place on 22 January 2018 at the Technopark Zurich. The meeting was organized by the Life Science Zurich Business Network, the Division of Business and Economic Development at the Office for Economy and Labour of the Canton of Zurich, the Bio-Technopark Schlieren, and the University of Zurich. The theme of the event – Translational Medicine – focused on the transition of new insights and discoveries from basic research and industrial development into clinical applications. Excellent and highly motivated researchers with innovative ideas often drive significant medical progress. However, they often encounter the same problem: How can they get in contact with industry, investors, and collaboration partners at an early stage of their projects to successfully orchestrate the transition from research to commercial development?
