Local junior researchers will present topics related to breast cancer, including how AGR2 relates to aggressive features and the relationship between tumor hypoxia and metastasis. And maybe we will learn where to find fantastic antibodies against the influenza virus?

We are very pleased to be able to meet in person, but the symposium will also be open for digital attendance. Please register within May 9th at 11.00 for those of you who want to attend in person. There is no registration deadline for digital attendance.

Datathon in Bergen / Eitri Medical Incubator 16. – 19. September

Eitri Medical Datathon 2022 is an effort to unleash the potential of data in healthcare and takes place from September 16th to 19th 2022 at Eitri in Bergen, Norway.

Leo Celi from MIT will help facilitate the workshop/datathon. Celi is best known for bringing together clinicians and data scientists to collect and analyze data routinely collected during the healthcare process.

The aim of the Eitri datathon is to utilize previously admitted patients’ data  from the emergency room to answer important clinical research questions.

“An equally important aim is to bring together clinicians, data scientist, engineers, industry, and investors for interdisciplinary collaboration aiming to provide better healthcare in the Bergen Hospital, and to the world”, says Director of Eitri, Torleif Markussen Lunde.

Key stakeholders from Haukeland Hospital, HVL, University of Bergen, Curie and Eureka student organizations, have agreed to participate. Clinicians, students, industry, and professors are invited to participate, nationally and internationally.
