Images de Science

We are working hard to put together another exciting program! The complete 2023 scientific program will be available soon!

Four topics will be discussed during the symposium highlighted by keynote lecturers, experts in their field.


Lance Liotta, Microgenomics 2016
  • Methodological Approaches & Instruments
  • Solid-tissue Analysis & Spatial Omics
  • Circulating Biomarkers, EV & Single Cells
  • Integrative analysis from Omics to Bioinformatics
