Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) and the Bavarian Academic Center for Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe (BAYHOST) are organizing a Bavarian-Russian Conference “Chemistry meets Biomedicine” on September 19-21, 2019 in Skoltech, Moscow.
The goal of the meeting is to enhance Bavarian-Russian scientific relations at the chemistry-biomedicine interface devoted to basic research and development of breakthrough technologies. The conference is open to researchers from all countries.
Last year the first meeting was performed in FAU, Erlangen (https://www.chemie.nat.fau.de/ak-mokhir/chemistry-in-live-cells/chemistry-meets-biomedicine/) and now an evolved conference is held in Skoltech, Moscow.
Skoltech (www.skoltech.ru) is located in the innovation and technology ecosystem Skolkovo near Moscow. It is a private English language graduate research institute that was established in 2011 in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Skoltech puts particular emphasis on entrepreneurship and innovation. Several Centers for Research, Education and Innovation (CREIs) address critical challenges in Data Science & Artificial Intelligence, Life Sciences and Biomedicine, Cutting-edge Engineering & Advanced Materials, Energy Efficiency, Quantum Technologies, and Advanced Studies. They are the key building blocks in the effort to develop a graduate university that combines education, research and innovation seamlessly. Skoltech offers master’s programs and PhD programs in English language in these areas. Stipends are available.
Apart from MIT, Moscow State University, Technical University of Munich (TUM), Waseda University (Tokyo) and companies like Siemens, Boeing, AstraZeneca and Cisco are among the international partners of Skoltech. Skoltech is interested in increasing the exchange of students and academics as well as research cooperation with partner institutions in Germany and all over the world.
