From Molecule to Business; Drug Discovery re-invented!

Date: September 30th, 2021
Time: 13:30-17:00 hrs (doors open at 13:00)
Location: Pivot Park, Oss
The Covid-pandemic has shown that the development of new techniques are important for drug discovery. A good example is the recent development of RNA-based vaccine. But every few years a fundamentally new technique will be on the market to improve discovery and development. In this years edition of the From Molecule to Business event we will discuss the re-invention of drug discovery
Chair: Christian van Munster (HCM Medical)
Key notes:
Anneke Post (ROCHE); Genomic profiling
Ruud Couwmans (Byondis); Antibody-Drug Conjugates: Guided Missiles in the Fight Against Cancer
Novel Techniques
During this round table discussion we will address the importance of new techniques like novel RNA techniques, Nano technologies and CRISPR Cas. These techniques increasingly allow us to design molecules with a pre-determined function & use instead of time consuming trial & error.
Host: Christian van Munster (HCM Medical).
Confirmed names: Rut Besseling (InProcessLSP), Sander van Asbeck (RIBOPRO) and Rick Wansink (Radboudumc)
Novel Technologies
Jos Oomen from HFML/FELIX will explain how with advanced technologies we are able to determine the precise structure of molecular structures of for example biomarkers and how this data can be used to optimise drugs discovery. Venture Challenge winner Fall 2019 BIMINI Biotech (Maurits van den Nieuwboer) will explain their novel approach to limit the growth of cancer cells.
Hybrid event
We expect the RIVM guidelines will allow us to host a physical meeting at Pivot Park in Oss with networking/drinks/snacks afterwards. The event will be streamed online as well. We will wait for the latest update from the upcoming press conference on September 20 and will contact you afterwards to check your preference (live/online).
Good to know
Presentations are in English & the entrance is free (registration upfront is needed though). We welcome new guests, so please feel free to pass on this invitation to relevant people in your network!
We look forward to meeting you!

New start-up Patholyt will bring AI research into pathology diagnostics

Patholyt is on a mission to accelerate the adoption of artificial intelligence in pathology diagnostics and improve the chances of cancer patients worldwide. Patholyt is a spin-off from Radboudumc, a frontrunner in computational pathology research.

Pathology is pivotal in the diagnostic process of many diseases such as cancer. For more than 100 years pathologists have been using the optical microscope for tissue examination. The field of pathology is now challenged by the world’s shortage of pathologists, and the growing requirements for efficiency and consistent quality.

A revolution in the field

Recent progress in artificial intelligence, imaging, and high-performance computing has unlocked a revolution in the field: AI-powered Computational Pathology. Patholyt will bring research algorithms into clinical practice to both speed up and improve the quality of pathology diagnostics.

Groot AI-project ontvangt ruim 95 miljoen voor 10 jaar publiek-privaat onderzoek.

Radboudumc met medische AI belangrijke kartrekker in het project.

NWO gaat twee consortia financieren met een looptijd van tien jaar. Het Radboudumc neemt deel aan het ROBUST-consortium, dat bestaat uit 17 AI-labs waarvan er 8 zijn gericht op de gezondheidszorg. Het Radboudumc leidt 5 van deze 8 labs. “Een unieke kans om onze internationale toppositie in AI voor de gezondheidszorg in Nijmegen verder uit te bouwen”, zegt Bram van Ginneken, hoogleraar AI in het Radboudumc.

17:00 Wrap-up & announcements by Martijn Kriens
Formal goodbye John Schalken
John Schalken
We would also like to take a moment for a formal goodbye for our valued colleague John Schalken, who retired in January 2021. We will create a cosy spot in the meeting room (and afterwards outside on the green) where you can find John & Sophie both before and after the event.
Live Event
We are so glad that the current RIVM guidelines allow us to organize a live meeting at Novio Tech Campus Nijmegen with networking/drinks/snacks afterwards. Taking into account 1,5 meter distance, there is a limit to the number of participants that we can receive at NTC (40 persons). We will also provide a live stream of the event for those who cannot make it to Nijmegen. Contact Marion if you prefer to join online.

Crowdhelix – Find partners for collaborative projects on the Crowdhelix platform

To support researchers with finding European partners and creating a network around Horizon Europe calls, Radboudumc and Radboud University have joined the Crowdhelix community. The Crowdhelix platform offers researchers to share their expertise and get in touch with European colleagues that share their interests.

Are you, or do you know, someone that is interested in participating in European collaborative projects but not yet has the network to start? Then joining the Crowdhelix platform is the perfect way to meet researchers and companies that are looking for the same thing. You can find more information on the Grant Support Office intranetsite and email with questions.

Join the webinar: Networking with Crowdhelix on 9 September, 10 – 11 a.m. Click here for more information.
