Glossary

  • Biotechnology is the study of all processes involving life cells or enzymes for the transformation and production of certain substances.
  • A vaccine is a preparation of dead or weakened pathogens (or of derived antigenic determinants) used to induce immunity against the pathogen.
  • Molecular means: at the level of molecules.

Agenda

On December 6th, 2016, BIOPRO Baden-Württemberg together with Alsace BioValley and the generous support of Catalent Pharma Solutions will host a Meet & Match on "Challenges in Early Drug Development and Innovation in Drug Delivery" in Karlruhe.

The event addresses companies and research institutions in the pharmaceutical industry and biotechnology. It brings together developers and users. The aim of this Meet & Match is to intensify the dialogue between the Alsace and Baden-Württemberg, initiate contacts, cooperations or business ties between the participants.

The focus of the event is innovative dosage forms and drug delivery technologies for pharmaceuticals and vaccines. In short talks companies and scientists from both regions Baden-Württemberg and the Alsace present their current research projects and technologies. The language of the event is English.

To intensify the networking between the participants, also the attendees may present their company or research group in a two- to three-minute-presentation prior to the lunch in the Short Presentation Session. The number of partcipants in this session is limited and arranged for producing, researching and developing companies and research institutions. If you want to participate in the Short Presentation Session, apply therefore in your registration.

The participation in the event is free of charge. A registration is mandatory.

Glossary

  • Biotechnology is the study of all processes involving life cells or enzymes for the transformation and production of certain substances.
  • Conjugation is a natural process referring to the temporary ‚union’ (joining of donor and host cell) of certain bacteria through which genetic information (plasmids) is exchanged. The genes involved are usually located on the plasmids.
  • A protein is a high-molecular complex made up of amino acids. The proteins perform a wide variety of activities in the cells and represent more than 50% of organic mass.
  • A vaccine is a preparation of dead or weakened pathogens (or of derived antigenic determinants) used to induce immunity against the pathogen.
  • Molecular means: at the level of molecules.
  • Biomolecules which can bind active agents are called targets. They can be receptors, enzymes or ion channels. If agent and target interact with each other the term agent-target-specific effect is used. The identification of targets is very important in biomedical and pharmaceutical research because a specific interaction can help to understand basic biomolecular processes. This is essential to identify new points of application.
