1st European Conference on Translational Bioinformatics



The 1st European Conference on Translational Bioinformatics will present speakers addressing:

  • Big biomedical data approaches converting health data to clinically relevant information
  • Health data capture and curation
  • Phenotypic data and metadata
  • Precision medicine
  • Data integration and analytics combining molecular biomarker data with clinical data
  • Secure private cloud technology for person-sensitive data
  • The future of sustainable healthcare models
  • Ethics and data protection  in the context of medical informatics

The conference will be relevant for researchers and other actors with interest across the domains of bioinformatics, systems biology, chemoinformatics, medical informatics, biology and medicine.

A poster session will be organised to give participants the opportunity to present individual papers. The conference organization encourages authors to prepare research abstracts of excellent quality in all areas related to translational bioinformatics. All abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific committee for the quality and originality of their research, scientific content, and presentation. More details and deadlines will be provided soon.

The conference will bring together world-leading scientists in the area and aims to give the participants a unique experience and a forum for discussing fresh scientific results in the translational domain.

The Conference is organized by the “Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research” at the University of Copenhagen and supported by the Horizon 2020 MedBioinformatics project. MedBioinformatics aims to develop bioinformatics tools and applications of relevance for analysing the huge amount of data and knowledge generated in healthcare and biomedical research with the further aim of facilitating translational research and precision medicine.
