The steering committee of the Translation Hub Multi-Omics is pleased to announce a call to the community to provide ideas and use cases for the implementation of new technologies into the BIH Multi-Omics Core Facilities. At the online event on 16 February 2022, the BIH Multi-Omics Core Facility leaders will pitch new technologies that meet open demands of the community and will fill technical gaps in the translational research pipeline. Scientists, clinicians and clinician scientists from BIH, Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) are invited to discuss and develop ideas for technology development in the BIH Multi-Omics Core Facilities with the respective core facility heads.

The Lecture will be held online via GoToMeeting. To participate in the Lecture, please register here. The registration will be open until maximal participant capacity is reached.
