TMF-Workshop: OMICS in Medical Research 2nd edition

The workshop will address important topics from omics-based medical research, with a sideways glance at their potential relevance to clinical care. Presentations will highlight the role of omics in cardiovascular disease and oncology in particular, and will also address the emerging use of artificial intelligence in the clinic.

As a special focus, the workshop will take a look at the role of Germany in current international efforts to establish omics-based medical research as a driver of ‘next generation medicine’ (e.g. Human Cell Atlas, ICGC-ARGO, GA4GH). Distinguished speakers will present the visions underlying these initiatives and examine Germany’s readiness to meet the challenges of future medicine.
Since all the above efforts depend upon access to, and use of, high-quality clinical data, the workshop will also explore how systems medicine and bioinformatics may benefit from the ‘Medical Informatics Initiative’, a recent national funding program by BMBF. More specifically, the workshop will contour the links required between clinical data standards (HL7, LOINC etc.) and the omics world.
The workshop will also address the prerequisites to integrate and responsibly share large amounts of sensitive medical data for research. Since international cooperation is paramount for the translation of basic research into clinical practice, special attention will be paid to the legal framework of collaborative research in genetics and genomics.

Of note, the day after the workshop, the 7th National Biobanking Symposium will take place at the same venue and open under the headline “Fit for purpose – Omics and novel medical models and materials”, pinpointing the great demand for high-quality human biomaterial for omics-based research.

Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
