Innovative molecular biological methods, Covid-19, the latest developments at universities and in the industry – these core themes determine the four-day MEDICA LABMED FORUM program dedicated to the diagnostic field of laboratory medicine. The latest scientific findings in the fields of virology, infectiology, immunology, microbiology and biotechnology will be presented as part of MEDICA, the world’s leading medical trade fair, which will take place in Düsseldorf, Germany from November 15 – 18, 2021. This is where the MEDICAL LABMED FORUM will offer medical professionals, health care providers and industry representatives a wide range of talks by specialists from around the globe in Hall 1. In keeping with MEDICA’s hybrid event concept, visitors with a corresponding ticket can either follow the forum’s program live at the trade fair or via a digital live stream on the www.medica-tradefair.com portal. The forum will be held in English.

On day one, top-class speakers will give short presentations and take part in interactive panel discussions that revolve around microbiology and metagenomics – with a particular focus on Covid-19. On the second day, cardiology and oncology are the focus, while the third and fourth days of the event take a closer look at the latest developments in the university field and industry. “On the whole, there are three keywords that sum up this year’s LABMED FORUM,” explains Prof. Dr Georg Hoffmann of Trillium, specialists for medical publications, who organizes the event series in cooperation with the German Heart Centre Munich. “The first is genomics, in other words, the latest molecular biological methods that look at a genome in its entirety. Secondly, we will be focusing on aspects and vaccinations related to Covid-19, and thirdly we will be taking a closer look at research and innovative projects at universities and in the industry.”

The forum’s program starts on November 15 (10:30 am) with the topics metagenomes and metabolomics, chaired by Prof. Dr. med. Beniam Ghebremedhin (Witten/Herdecke University, HELIOS Wuppertal University Clinic). This day focuses on microbiology and infectiology in relation to Covid-19.

Metagenomics and metabolomics are the two fastest progressing “omics” technologies (Note.: This is the umbrella term for molecular biological methods) and cover each end of the omics’ cascade. Metagenomics identifies the genetic potential of a community, while metabolomics deals with the actual biology that results in a phenotype. This research provides new insights into the etiology of diseases of the digestive tract and the metabolism, and now of Covid-19 as well.
