Welcome Letter from MIXiii-Biomed 2019

The Full Spectrum of Healthcare: From Prevention to Rehabilitation and Everything in

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is our honor and pleasure to invite you to participate in the 18th MIXiii-BIOMED Conference and Exhibition, to be held May 14-16, 2019 in Tel Aviv, Israel.

The common definition of Healthcare is the field concerned with the maintenance or restoration of the health of the body and mind.

Yet, for generations we have been using the term healthcare to describe “sickcare”. In the upcoming MIXiii-BIOMED 2019 conference we will expand the definition and focus on The Full Spectrum of Healthcare: From Prevention to Rehabilitation and Everything in Between.

In past conferences, we have dealt with diagnosis, monitoring and treatment domains, and we will continue to do so this year as well. However, in addition, we will expand the scope and range of topics to explore trends and innovations that are shaping the future of the healthcare system to its full extent.

In all topics we will feature Medical Device, Biopharma, Digital Health and Diagnosis where appropriate.

Fields to be included:

  • Gene Editing and Gene Therapy: The Next Frontier in Human Health
  • Transforming Medicine: Artificial Intelligence and Digital Health
  • Personalized Medicine and Digital Health: Lessons Learned and Challenges Ahead
  • Transformative Cancer Therapies
  • Tango of the Two: Academia and Industry
  • Prevention and Rehabilitation: Should the Underdog Begin Barking?
  • New Modalities of Cell Therapies: Revolutionizing the Way We Treat Diseases
  • Disruptive and Advanced Medical Devices
  • Cannabis’ Therapeutic Promise: Hope or Hype?

We are encouraged by the new trend, practiced primarily in wealthy countries, of shifting clinical care from cure to prevention. Todays, therapies and technologies often extend patients’ lives, however, without commensurate rehabilitation, quality of life is often neglected.

Evidence suggests that rehabilitation can reduce the functional difficulties associated with ageing and improve quality of life.

This year’s conference is co-organized by leading Israeli and international healthcare institutions with the objective of exposing participants to thought leaders and experts and allow local and global attendees to mix and exchange knowledge and ideas.

As the leading event of Israel’s life sciences industry, MIXiii-BIOMED has positioned itself as the main annual meeting place for both Israeli and international players. It presents a unique and exuberating occasion to participate in discussions, panel presentations, product demonstrations and networking opportunities, all paving the way for new business collaborations.

Our previous successful conferences hosted over 6,000 industry executives, scientists, doctors, engineers and investors, including approximately 1,000 international participants from over 45 countries and more than 4,500 one-on-one meetings.

Come and celebrate with us, see and be seen and propel your business forward!

We look forward to your ACTIVE support and participation at the 18th MIXiii-BIOMED, May 14-16, 2019.
