Salzburg in Austria was the beautiful autumn setting for Tecan’s Third Symposium focusing this year on Applying Genomic Technologies.
Speakers and delegates from Europe, the US, Asia and Australia took advantage of this unique opportunity to meet and discuss their science in an informal and stimulating atmosphere. Sessions were held over two days on a number of different focal points within applied genomics, beginning with an overview of the newest technologies in development and how they might impact the whole spectrum of genomics applications. The emphasis then turned to the applications themselves, on the impact of genomics on human health, in human identification for forensic applications, and on food and the environment. A key element of the program was the significant amount of time set aside for question and answer open forums with speakers from each session.
Marc Feiglin, Chief Technology Officer of Life Sciences and the host of the Tecan Symposium in Salzburg, said: “The symposium provides Tecan with a valuable opportunity to interact with thought leaders from both academia and industry. The three days of interactions enables us to understand the cutting edge science and technology as well as the bottlenecks and problems that are encountered in applying these technologies.
Our guests appreciate the opportunity to engage not only with their peers from within their industry or area of specialty, but also from other areas and to understand the commonalities between their problems and areas of research. The hope is to stimulate cross-fertilization of ideas.’’
