SmB Cafe April 2019 (CANCELED)

Thursday the 11th

The April weather may be unpredictable, and apparently the number of sign-ups as well. For the first time in the history of SmB we have decided to cancel the cafe due to too few sign-ups... We didn't like it and we're very sorry, but our speakers as well as our audience deserve more impact through our events, so they will be coming back another time! In the meanwhile, check out the May Cafe!

PROGRAMME

Making Life Science programmable with microfluidics

Federico Muffatto (CEO)

Digi.Bio harnesses the power of Digital Microfluidics to rapidly and precisely manipulate droplets on a microscale. This technology is based on electrowetting (EWOD), a technique of microfluidics which allows control of fluid flow and shape using electrical signals applied over a planar electrode array.

Much-needed novel antimicrobials

Leonie de Best (CBO)

Madam Therapeutics, in collaboration with the LUMC and AMC, is developing antibiotics with a new mechanism of action to contribute to the increasing issue of antimicrobial resistance to traditional antibiotics. The lead compound SAAP-148 is currently being developed for the treatment of for example wound infections and is nearing the end of the pre-clinical fase. The first clinical study is expected to kick-off end of 2019. Madam would in the near future also like to develop other SAAPs for (semi-) systemic infections.

Complex statistics of surgical performance

Stéphanie van der Pas (PhD)

How do you assess whether the performance of transplantation surgeons is “good enough”? And how do you do so fairly, without penalizing doctors for treating patients who are especially at risk? I’ll discuss the LUMC’s initiative to use Cumulative Sum charts to monitor surgeon performance.How do you assess whether the performance of transplantation surgeons is “good enough”?

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!
