XVI. Semmelweis Symposium &
VI. Conference on Cell Analysis:
Molecular Gastroenterology, Cell Analysis, Array Technology
November 15-17., 2007
Within the frameworks of Semmelweis Symposium we kindly invite you to the
Molecular Gastroenterology, Array Technology Conference. Besides presenting
research and diagnostic methods in molecular biology, it is to thematically
summarize the latest diagnostic and therapeutic results of gastroenterology
related diseases providing and exploring a cause and effect explanation.
The venue of the Symposium provides an opportunity to reveal the revolutionary
activity of our ancestors working at Semmelweis University. This way we can be
part of a unique journey in history by presenting hidden treasures, introducing
workplaces of the past, and meeting modern methods and results.
It is our honour to invite you to join us taking an active part of the past, the present
and the future of medicine and gastroenterology and in the life of Semmelweis

Purpose of the
The purpose of the Molecular Gastroenterology, Array Technology Conference is
to summarize and present the practical application possibilities of the
revolutionary new methods and results of the past few years in cell analysis and
Therefore, the Conference Program will be compiled by state of the art
presentations, hands-on demonstrations, posters presenting latest research
results, commercial exhibition and journeys in the history in this field. Our
lecturers will present the widest repertoire of molecular information, molecular
biological and array methods. We will particularly emphasize how these methods
contributed to the latest breakthrough results and findings in gastroenterology.
According to molecular biological results we have achieved a significant progress
in the detection of gastroenterological diseases' background and in understanding
its pathomechanism. At the same time, new therapies emerged (anti TNFalfa,
VEGF, EGFR), whose targets were identified with the help of cell analysis,
molecular biology and array technology. The Conference intends to summarize
the new knowledge on main diseases of the gastroenterological tract and to
introduce new aimed therapies in molecular biological context.
The venue and the date of the Conference also provide an opportunity to have a
look from the future through the present to the past. We are going to organize a
historical journey to introduce the famous characters, workplaces and instruments
of our University's Inner Clinical Block.
We wish to keep this exemplary ambience showing strength and persistence
organizing a banquet dinner in the Museum of Applied Arts. Among other
achievements of Hungarian artists and notabilities, the musical and artistic
performance of doctors of the present can make the Conference complete.
We encourage participation of every researcher, laboratory coworker and PhD
student working in the field of gastroenterology, human or animal medicine.
We await students and colleagues of the University to get acquainted with this
important part of our University, and to find strength and guidance in the historical
and artistic background for the tough workdays.
At the end of the Conference, PhD students can take a closing exam. Those who
participate in the practical demonstrations will receive further credit points.
