Workshop Sessions

Venue: Lecture Hall Frauenklinik (across from the CMMC Research Building)

9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

Workshop 1: Computational Methods in Biomedicine for Wet Lab Scientists.

organized by Kasia Bozek | Andreas Beyer | Philipp Antczak

Aim: In an interactive format, in this workshop we will present in detail functioning and potential applications of several computational methods in biomedical research. The content is aimed towards wet lab scientists with no computational experience.

11:00 - 11:15 a.m. - Coffee Break - CMMC Foyer

1:30 - 2:00 p.m. - Lunch Break - CMMC Foyer

11:15 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

Workshop 2: Integration and analysis of multiplex imaging technologies

organized by Nieves Peltzer | Hien Nguyen

Aim: The development of state-of-the-art imaging technologies to deeply study tissues, biopsies or other biological material has flourished in recent years. Yet, their implementation and analysis remain challenging. In this workshop we will discuss the available technologies, their power and limitations and how to make maximal use of the data. Ultimately, we aim to discuss how to benefit from these technologies and expertise on the Cologne biomedical campus.

Workshop 3: EU Grant Proposal: Linking environmental pollution to disease

organized by Philipp Antczak

Aim: This workshop will aim to establish whether Cologne researchers would like to submit a grant proposal focusing on “The Role of Environmental Pollution in Noncommunicable Diseases: Air, Noise, and Light Pollution and Hazardous Waste” for the upcoming EU Calls in September (HORIZON-HLTH-2024-ENVHLTH-02-06-two-stages). This call aims to better understand the relationship between environmental pollution and disease status in non-communicable diseases, for which several cohorts are available in Cologne. The budget for this call is €7-8 million. This project could combine the efforts of disease cohorts, cellular damage, multi-level modeling, chemistry, and social science to better understand how we as a population are affected by the chemical pollution that surrounds us.
