Life Science Zurich Impact – The Cause of Health in Zurich is a one-day multi-track meeting providing scientists from academia, clinics, and industry a platform to present their early stage life science projects to potential collaboration partners as well as investors.
Medicine has largely focused on studying the cause of illness in search for cures. Although we have made dramatic advances in identifying specific causes of illness in individual patients, we know remarkably little how individuals stay healthy. Cause of health research differs from classical medical and clinical research since it relies on data from healthy individuals. The conference will address the opportunities and challenges, which the ‘Cause of Health’ approach will offer from an ethical, research, commercial and healthcare viewpoint. There will be sessions on preventive, predictive, personalized, and participatory health, investor tracks, and 1:1 meetings. Speakers from academia, clinics, and industry will present studies on the control of pathogens, nutrition, healthy aging, public and digital health, healthcare and artificial intelligence, and they will introduce novel therapies.
