Topic: Organoids in Human Medicine
Rapid developments in human stem cell research have recently made it possible to create organoids, organ-like structures, de novo to analyse the development, function and organ diseases from outside the body. In my talk, I will present the application of organoid technology for diabetes cell therapy.

Topic: Omegametrix’ Fatty acid analysis – a significant leap forward

The conventional nutritional research utilises methods such as dietary questionnaires, which yield data with a plausibility of 50% and employ outdated methods. We invented, designed and developed the Omegametrix-method to determine a person‘s status of fatty acids. This is a strictly standardized analysis of the respective percentage of 26 fatty acids in erythrocytes, which approximately 420 publications are based on. In the course of the talk, I will present this analytical method and explain how we have opened a new chapter in fatty acid research.
