On 26 and 27 April 2016 Mette Dahl Bendtsen, Anna Schönherz, Karen Dybkær, Hans Erik Johnsen, Lasse Hjort Jakobsen, Rasmus Froberg Brøndum and Martin Bøgsted participated in the 1st European Conference on Translational Bioinformatics.
At the conference there were lectures by some of the world’s leading experts in translating bioinformatics and systems biology for clinical use.
The conference was very inspiring and emphasized the potential of the relapse project.
At the conference, we presented 3 posters concerning the relapse project, NEXT bioinformatics and hemaclass.org.
On 15 March 2016 Professor Karen Dybkær, Consultant Haematologist Tarec El-Galaly, and Professor Martin Bøgsted visited Professor Dr. Wolfram Klapper, University of Kiel.
The purpose of the visit was to discuss a possible collaboration. It was a very fruitful meeting, and a number of specific projects were planned.
Besides the scientific meeting, they also saw the teaching archive of lymphoma cases collected by Karl Lennart, who was the father of the famous Kiel Classification for Lymphoma, from which the B-cell associated gene signature classifier from our group has its origin.
