The focus was set on drug development in oncology, cardiovascular diseases and infectious diseases.

Latest research results in oncogenomics, functional genomics and epigenetics as well as novel approaches for drug development were discussed.  Cooperation models in drug discovery and translational research showed opportunities for collaboration of pharma, biotech, science and clinical research. The development of new compound classes, e.g. HDAC-inhibitors, anti-thrombic compounds or antibodies against bacterial infections was presented.
