Life sciences is a growing, dynamic sector thanks to continuous scientific discoveries and the development of new analytical techniques and methods.
The life sciences sector is playing an essential role in innovation as we transition towards new horizons in medicine and health. A new approach to medical care is being enabled by experimentation and the technological transfer of ideas and results from research centres to industry, to the benefit of both medical systems and patients.
The seventh edition of the event focuses on the impact of biomedical technologies throughout life by analysing new trends and perspectives. Biomedical technologies – tools, equipment, drugs and procedures aimed at prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease and rehabilitation – can help people to live healthier and longer lives, supporting life in all its phases and conditions.
Lifelong personalised medicine requires above all a better understanding of the biological mechanisms of development, ageing and longevity. To maintain independence in daily life and support families and caregivers, we will see greater importance given to the integration of genomic data and clinical history, the continuous monitoring of functions, the use of increasingly sophisticated diagnostic tools, the availability of technologies to counter, invert and compensate for loss of function.
Maximizing the impact of research and technological innovation on the organization of the public health system will be a key challenge in coming years.
In this context, Meet in Italy for Life Sciences aims to showcase Italian excellence in the sector and provide an opportunity for discussing ideas with international partners.
