Heidelberg Engineering will offer a preview of its cataract and refractive imaging platform* during this year’s Congress of the ESCRS in Barcelona.The platform is based on an upgradable, modular design, which allows to configure each product to the specific diagnostic workflow in a practice or clinic.
We explore three ways of defining gene sets, including a novel way based on the notion of a fully coupled flux related to metabolic pathways. Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg We demonstrate a set-level approach to the integration of multiple platform gene expression data for predictive classification and show its utility for boosting classification performance when single- platform samples are rare.Standard Operating Procedures exist among others for the following procedures: The Heidelberg Lung Biobank has a long standing expertise in high quality TNM documentation of lung cancer handling about 1000 new cases each year.The biobank is operated on the basis of quality assured data management that is largely embedded in the clinical IT system.Esther Herpel (Head of NCT-Tissue Bank), Intstitute of Pathology, Heidelberg University Hospital Contact: Dr.
Thomas Muley Sektion Translationale Forschung (STF)Thoraxklinik am Universitätsklinikum Heidelberg Amalienstr. Biobanking is regarded as a key resource for modern molecular medical research – the TMF operates the German Biobank Registry. Muley, Head of Heidelberg Lung Biobank, Translational Research Unit, Thoraxklinik at Heidelberg University Hospital, Co-coordinator of DZL-Biobank Platform Co-Investigators Dr.The European Union Biobanking and Biomolecular Resources Research Infrastructure (BBMRI) has grown into a 54-member consortium with more than 225 associated organisations (largely biobanks) from over 30 countries, making it one of the largest research infrastructure projects in Europe. Michael Meister, Translational Research Unit, Thoraxklinik at Heidelberg University Hospital Dr.The main objective of this Project is to study the role of the lipogenic pathway and Rho GTPases in lung and pancreatic cancer with the ultimate goal of improving patient survival by using a multidisciplinary approach, focused in these two pathways that are likely to be universally altered in cancer and that are mechanistically linked.The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) is a comprehensive and coordinated effort to accelerate our understanding of the molecular basis of cancer through the application of genome analysis technologies, including large-scale genome sequencing.The NCT Tissue Bank functions as a central resource and technology platform for the Heidelberg campus and provides access to frozen and paraffin-embedded normal and tumor tissues, related clinical data, high-end tissue-technology and comprehensive project management.
