European Pharma Days

April 25 - 26, 2023, Mannheim, Germany

Join us for the European Pharma Days

Join Bruker for the annual European Pharma Meeting taking place on April 25th - 26th 2023 in Mannheim, Germany, organized by Bruker, M2Aind and CeMOS – Center for Mass Spectrometry and Optical Spectroscopy.

In this exciting 2-day in-person event we have speakers from the pharmaceutical industry and academia discussing with you their strategies in Drug Targeting Approaches (day 1) and Biomarker Discovery & Characterization (day 2). 

Emerging topics in the field of Targeted Protein Degraders, SpatialOMx®, and MALDI Imaging will be presented by Bruker customers: we welcome Prof. Dr. Martina Marchetti-Deschmann (Technical University Vienna), Prof. Dr. Rob Vreeken (Janssen Pharmaceutica), Dr. Oliver Klein (BIH Center for Regenerative Therapies, Charité), Dr. Uli Ohmayer (NEOsphere), Dr. Nicolas Pythoud (Novartis), Dr. Yasemin Uçal, Dr. Alexandra Iakab (CeMOS), Dr. Stefan Linehan (TissueVision), and Stephane Chevrier (Navignostics) who will be presenting their state-of-the-art scientific research.

Curious about newest insights in the field of biomarker discovery with innovative proteomics, immunopeptidomics, metabolomics and lipidomics approaches? Then you cannot miss the presentations of Prof. Dr. Stefan Tenzer (University Medical Center Mainz), Dr. Carla Newman (GSK), Dr. Laura Bindila (University Medical Center Mainz), Dr. Jasjot Singh (Merck Group), Prof. Dr. Carsten Hopf (CeMOS), Dr. Marco Hennrich (GSK), Prof. Dr. Nicola Ternette (Oxford University), and Dr. Yuehan Feng (Biognosys).

The 2-day in-person event is held in a safe, comfortable environment where you can meet and learn from the leading scientist in the pharmaceutical industry and academia.
