Inail participates for the second year at the European Biotech Week (Ebw), a week of events and meetings around the world to illustrate biotechnology to a wide and diverse audience, coordinated and promoted nationally by Assobiotec-Federchimica.
The event, which focuses on the key role that biotech plays in improving the quality of life, was launched in Canada in 2003 and arrived in Europe in 2013. Since 2016, the event has been organized in different continents, creating a real “Global Biotech Week”, demonstrating how biotechnology is a boundless resource, able to offer solutions to the great challenges facing society worldwide.
If you want to find more details about the European Biotech Week and what are the main subjects to be discussed by the companies taking part in the event, download for free the Born2Invest mobile app. Our companion app brings you the latest financial headlines in the world and the most important discoveries in the biotech sector.
The “emerging” themes of the Biotech sector
The event taking place on October 1st and 2nd is organized by the Department of Technological Innovations and Safety of Plants, Products, and Human Settlements. The aim of the event is to raise awareness among teachers and students of Higher Education Institutes on the issues of the biotech sector, considered “emerging” and therefore requiring more attention, individual responsibility, and awareness on opportunities and new risks.
Epigenomics and correct lifestyles; the new homic sciences and artificial intelligence
Companies taking part at the event will talk about epigenetics and correct lifestyles, in order to raise awareness of the importance of adopting correct behaviors and lifestyles promoting awareness of their choices, a topic of particular importance in this time of pandemic.
Another topic discussed will be that of circadian regulation of genes that, if altered, can have a negative impact on different physiological functions and determine a predisposition to developing cancer, cardiovascular and metabolic diseases including obesity and diabetes. Particularly interesting is the topic of new biotech techniques in relation to safety in the food industry. Finally, it will be discussed about artificial intelligence as a useful tool for the interpretation of the large amount of data produced by biotechnological research.
Safety and biotech: from the laboratory to clinical trials, at the time of the pandemic
The Italian biotech world is the protagonist of an extraordinary development, due to the undisputed excellence of academic and industrial research. Biotech applications in the biomedical field currently represent the sector in which biotechnology has made the most significant contribution, both in terms of therapeutic products and research and development.
The experts will also address the issue of safety and regulation in the biotech field: from laboratory handling to clinical trials, for the development of vaccines against Sars-Cov-2. In conclusion, it will be discussed how the new discoveries of neuroscience can shed new light on the many different aspects that affect the way of learning, an important issue for safety training activities.
The event organized on the occasion of the scientific divulgation event European Biotech Week (Ebw) at the DCOD Inail headquarters in Rome will also be live-streamed.
