SmB Cafe October 2018
Thursday the 11th
Come over, come over, the eleventh of October: the second Thursday of the month! We'll make sure again that you can enjoy time off, while gaining knowledge about what's going on in science and business, get to know new people and maybe get inspired to start your own (or not and realise pure science is more your thing)! See you then at BioPartner 1, to be found by our brand new beachflag. See you then!
The end of passwords
As our first speaker we welcome Gulliver 2018 winner Keyn to the stage. This Leiden based startup is building an application that has found the sweet spot between security and ease-of-use.
Successes and developments in the Bio Science Park
Thijs de Kleer
General director Thijs will give us an insight into BioPartner's expansion plans, which have been developed due to the incubators' success in the Bio Science Park.
Quantitative Single-Cell Biology
We study cell-fate decision-making using embryonic stem cells as a model system. Stem cells integrate a large number of cues to direct their development into a great variety of cell types. Using single-cell transcriptomics and single-molecule microscopy in combination with machine learning and mathematical modeling we seek to unravel the dynamics of the decision making process and understand the interplay of internal factors (epigenetics, cell cycle, stochastic gene expression) and external factors (signaling molecules, cell-cell contacts, mechanical cues). We believe that the basic principles discovered through our research will be of great value for applications in regenerative medicine and the eradication of cancer stem cells.
Let us know if you'll be there!
Attendance to Science meets Business events is free of charge. However, in order to know how many seats, drinks and snacks we should provide, we would like to know how many people to expect. This is why we kindly request you register for the events if you are joining, and please let us know if you will no longer be able to attend (no hard feelings). See you soon!
