AGORA Workshop "MULTIMODAL IMAGING: in life sciences and cancer research"

02.02.2023 08:30 - 17:00

Auditorium PATERNOT AGORA Rue du Bugnon 25A, 1011 Lausanne


Breakthroughs in imaging technologies have been a driving force for new discoveries in biology. Indeed, the ability to visualize events occurring in the living organism is essential for understanding biomedical processes. Today, in vivo imaging provides crucial observations of cell dynamics, and allows for assessment and manipulation of cells at the molecular level. It is also possible to combine different imaging modalities to analyze life at different resolutions and scales.

To advance knowledge and networking in this area, this one-day workshop will explore intravital microscopy, light-triggered functional interventions, macroscopic imaging techniques (e.g. PET-CT, MRI), and new tools for visualization, targeting, labeling and manipulation of cells in vivo. We will also discuss the combination of imaging modalities, and image analysis and the use of AI in this area. We will mostly focus on the application of these techniques to cancer research.

- Meeting organizers: Alexandre Benechet, Susan Gasser, Mikael Pittet

Chères et chers collègues,

C'est avec plaisir que nous vous accueillons pour parler des lésions à long terme du périnée. En effet les points de vue sur l'accouchement par voie basse varient selon que l'on s'adresse à un obstétricien ou à un urogynécologue. C'est donc l'occasion de poser la question au premier concerné : le périnée.

Sous ce titre un peu provocateur, nous souhaitons faire le point sur les traitements actuels de l'incontinence et du prolapsus génital après les années de polémiques sur les prothèses vaginales.

Chers Collègues,
Chers Amis,

L’unité de médecine de la fertilité et endocrinologie gynécologique organise le premier colloque de 2023 dédié à mieux comprendre et traiter l’adénomyose.

L’adénomyose est une pathologie utérine fréquente et très sous-estimée en terme de prévalence. Sa physiopathologie et sa sémiologie diagnostique sont de mieux en mieux connues. De plus, les conséquences potentielles de cette pathologie sur la fertilité, la PMA et le déroulement des grossesses commencent aussi à être bien étudiées. La présence d’un désir de grossesse, la volonté de conserver l’utérus et la sévérité de l’adénomyose font partie des paramètres de choix du traitement.

A cette occasion, nous avons le plaisir d’accueillir plusieurs experts nationaux et internationaux, venus nous parler du diagnostic et des conséquences de l’adénomyose dans la vie fertile de nos patientes.

Nous espérons vous y rencontrer nombreuses et nombreux.

Medical education and common cardiovascular issues in neonatology

 Dear colleagues and friends,

We are delighted to welcome you all to the 2023 Annual Meeting of the Swiss Society of Neonatology in Aarau. This year’s edition is created around topics that were selected by our members, based on a survey conducted to strengthen the impact of all members on proceedings and meetings of The Society.

As you can see from the program, the main sessions are all related to real-world, practical questions in education of future neonatologists and management of cardiovascular problems frequently occurring in clinical care. These topics are not only relevant to neonatologists, paediatricians, nursing staff and allied health care specialists working in the intensive care setting, but also to many colleagues from intermediate and special care units.

We do hope you will enjoy the meeting and we would like to encourage you to contribute to the lively discussions and networking opportunities at the congress. We would also be very happy if you would leave us some feedback and help us with suggestions and topics for upcoming meetings, in order to provide The Society with the best possible meeting, addressing areas of current interest that are relevant to its members.

Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen,
Liebe Freunde des Women's Health-Kongresses,

Bern im Januar ... das klingt ungemütlich, kalt und potentiell glatt auf den Strassen. Aber das sollte Sie auf keinen Fall daran hindern nach Bern zu kommen.

Der Women's Health Kongress findet an diesen beiden Tagen im schönen, warmen Ettore Rossi des Inselspitals in Bern statt. Am 11.1.2023 dominiert die Reproduktionsmedizin und am 12.1.2023 die Gynäkologische Endokrinologie und Menopausenmedizin. Und wir haben für Sie wieder ein sehr schönes Programm zusammengestellt.

Des Weiteren:
Es ist ein besonderer Kongress : Bei diesem Kongress übergeben beide Kongresspräsidenten den Staffelstab des Präsidentenamtes der SGEM und der SGRM an ihre Nachfolger. Und diese wollen wir natürlich mit möglichst vielen Kollegen und Kolleginnen begrüssen.

Somit freuen wir uns also jetzt schon, Sie im Januar in Bern begrüssen zu dürfen!

Spatial resolved transcriptomics and multiplexing of antibodies aim to detect mRNAs or/and proteins of a single cell in the context of tissue environment. This spatial context is crucial for understanding key mechanisms in cell biology, neurobiology or tumor biology like cell-cell interactions. Many technologies based on different methods (microdissection, in situ hybridization, in situ sequencing, in situ capturing and cyclic immunodetection) have been developed to fulfill this need. Many of those procedures are still under development, difficult to implement in a lab or come with high investment.

This workshop is a great opportunity to advance your knowledge about the existing technologies, your network and discuss with the industry.


Applications in research:

Which technologies for my research projects?
How to apply spatial-omics in human medical diagnostic?
Data analysis and integration:
How to interpret and integrate data from multi-omics procedures?

We look forward to welcoming you at this exciting meeting in Lausanne !

20th Annual Meeting of the Swiss Transplantation Society

26.01.2023 13:00 - 27.01.2023 17:00

Thun, Congress Hotel Seepark



Dear Colleagues, dear Friends

It is with great pleasure that I invite you, on behalf of the Swiss Transplantation Society, to join us at the 20th Annual Congress on January 26 and 27, 2023 at the Congress Hotel Seepark, in Thun.

For this annual meeting, our scientific committee, chaired by Patrizia Amico and assisted by Aurelia Schnyder, has prepared a very attractive program, covering very timely topics and relevant issues, both for transplant patients and for transplant specialists.

On Thursday, after the traditional and always very informative reports of Swiss Transplant and the STCS, our program will start with a keynote lecture on equity in accessibility to transplantation. This will be followed by an update on the strategies regarding CMV issues in solid organ and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. You don't want then to miss our also now traditional coordinators' corner, and very important, please come to cheer our young colleagues who will present, during the STS award competition session, the 6 best papers published in 2022 as selected by our scientific committee. The prizes will be awarded the same evening during our networking dinner.

The Friday programs will start with an interesting patient's perspective on organ living donation. Immunosuppression in young versus elder recipients, management of cancer after transplantation, and the role of the microbiome in transplantation will then be the topics presented during the day.

Our program will end up with the ceremony of the STS Excellence and Innovation awards 2022, and a final session on the challenges the various organ specialists are currently facing in transplantation.

I would like now to thank our sponsors for their very essential participation and of course our colleagues at meeting.com for their faithful, efficient and friendly support.

The Board of our Society, the Scientific Committee and myself are very much looking forward to seeing you soon in Thun and wish you all a very pleasant and fruitful congress.

Prof. Hendrik Tevaearai Stahel
President of the STS
