2016 Biomax Symposium: Bringing big and complex data into clinical practice

24 June 2016, Martinsried, Germany.
Biomax announces the 2016 Biomax Symposium on "Bringing Big and Complex Data into Clinical Practice" that will take place in Martinsried (near Munich), Germany. This year's Biomax Symposium focuses on how clinical practice and patient treatment can benefit from big and complex data. It will cover the challenges and requirements that need to be addressed in a clinical setting: from gathering big data, guaranteeing data security in daily practice and fostering feedback between complex clinical data and research, to learning from the data to make better treatment decisions. In a nutshell, the symposium will cover using big and complex data to treat the individual with the knowledge of all.

Biomax has hosted this biennial event since 2012 to facilitate the discussion between clinical management and practitioners, pharma, "Big Data" researchers, health insurance payers, public health and government representatives, funding providers, as well as patient representatives. Through the symposium Biomax hopes to share their own and other experiences in implementing such programs. Past symposia have been a popular forum for these important players to learn from each other and discuss the way forward.

Invited speakers and panel discussion participants are leaders from clinical research, healthcare organizations, international research projects and government. The opening session includes presentations by:

  • Prof. Dr. Emiel Wouters, Department of Respiratory Medicine, University Medical Centre, Maastricht
  • Henning Schneider, CIO at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf
  • Prof. Dr. Hans-Werner Mewes, School of Life Sciences, Technische Universität München

The symposium is free of charge.
