Knowledge for Growth - 18 May 2017

VUB with TTO Flanders at Knowledge for Growth

This is the 13th edition of Europe's finest life sciences conference Knowledge for Growth organised by Flanders Bio. At the booth of TTO Flanders, VUB will highlight a new generation of radio-immunotherapeutic drugs for cancer patients. The technology based on the unique characteristics of the Camelid immune system was developed by VUB research group Molecular Imaging and UZ Brussel and resulted in a spin-off: Camel-IDS.

Jens De Vos, co-founder Camel-IDS, will pitch at Knowledge for Growth as well as Johan Devenyns of VUB spin-off PharmaFluidics and prof. Thierry VandenDriessche specialised in gene therapy. Dirk Reyn, CEO of eTheRNA, is chair of the breakout session TEST. Two more founders of VUB spin-offs -Bart Landuyt of Cellsine and Liesbeth Van Oeffelen of BiosenSource- pitch in the afternoon.

The 5 Flemish universities will not only showcase specific innovative technologies, but also other licensing opportunities in biotech.

Join us in between conferences for a TTO TeaTime with regional delicacies from each university city! Booth 58 & 59. Not to miss!
