Dr. Kashif Sadiq from Molecular and Cellular Modeling (MCM) group at HITS was one of the 100 speakers selected for the European Health Science Match 2016 held on 26 September 2016 in Heidelberg. Kashif talked about his work on Predictive synthetic retrovirology as a new paradigm for gene delivery.

100 distinguished European scientists presented the key findings of their research in pharma, biotech and medicine at the European Health Science Match conference. The speakers had 3 minutes each to present their work and wow the audience. Over 600 attendees listened to the “rockstars” of medicine, pharma and biotech, who presented cutting-edge science in short 3-minute-presentations.The speakers came from leading science institutes and corporations and gave a brief insight into various topics of the broad spectrum of life sciences.The speakers of each session, which were divided in the topics “Understanding Disease”, “diagnosis”, “Tools and Devices” and “Therapy”, answered the questions of the attendees at the Science Club, where new business collaborations, investment ideas and project ideas could grow.

The European Health Science Match is a cooperation between the Biotech-Cluster Rhein-Neckar (BioRN) and the Tagesspiegel.

About HITS

HITS, the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, was established in 2010 by physicist and SAP co-founder Klaus Tschira (1940-2015) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation as a private, non-profit research institute. HITS conducts basic research in the natural, mathematical, and computer sciences. Major research directions include complex simulations across scales, making sense of data, and enabling science via computational research. Application areas range from molecular biology to astrophysics. An essential characteristic of the Institute is interdisciplinarity, implemented in numerous cross-group and cross-disciplinary projects. The base funding of HITS is provided by the Klaus Tschira Foundation.
