Welcome Note

Dear colleagues,

It is our pleasure to welcome you to Europe’s leading event for Drug Discovery and Life Sciences Research, MipTec’s organized Basel Life Sciences Week 2014.

The 2014 conference theme is “Translating Science into Drugs”.

Discovering and developing new and better drugs for patients requires the collaboration of an extraordinary number of specialists across many disciplines and organizations. MipTec 2014 introduces new topical forums to cover an even broader range of these disciplines: Infectious diseases, drug discovery information management, and clinical development.

As a global hub of pharmaceutical research and development, Basel offers the perfect setting to bridge the gap between the academic life sciences, early drug discovery, and clinical drug development. MipTec 2014 aims to achieve this by providing a platform for networking and scientific exchange for academic and industrial scientists.

With more than 100 exhibitors presenting state-of-the-art equipment and services to advance biomedical research, more than 100 scientific presentations, and more than 100 poster exhibitors, delegates will get expert insights into most recent developments and experiences in all dimensions of drug discovery.  Delegates will also have the opportunity to discuss strategic and business oriented issues and learn about career options in many of the exceptional satellite focused sessions.

On behalf of all organizers, sponsors, contributors and volunteers, we are looking forward to welcome you in Basel – home of the world’s leading life sciences community.
