“Life Sciences and Biomedical Technologies” conference on the health of Mediterranean countries on October 5 and 6 in Palermo

The populations of European countries such as Italy are faced with economic, demographic and therefore epidemiological changes. The peoples of the countries on the southern and eastern shores of the Mediterranean want to get better conditions of life and health, hence the dramatic phenomenon of migration. Added to this is the aging of the population and related chronic diseases. This entails new needs and a new health care. In addition to socio-economic development, it is therefore necessary to have adequate health care, diagnostic and therapeutic devices, drugs and methods of prevention and medical treatment. But it also requires training and information in the health acknowledgemt to both citizens and health professionals in their respective countries.

Life sciences and infobiomedical technologies, such as bioinformatics and telemedicine, can greatly contribute to better treatments and care, allowing rapid access to diagnostic methods and therapeutic procedures used in many hospitals, centers of excellence present in Italy and also located in the south and in Sicily. Thanks to the increasingly powerful and accessible telecommunication media, it is possible to carry out an ever increasing number of telediagnosis and clinical teleconsultation activities (teleradiology, telepathology teleoncology, telecardiology, teleophthalmology, etc.), telemonitoring of chronic diseases and teleriabilitaziome of people with disabilities.

There are several cooperation projects  between Italian and Mediterranean health units: active initiatives both at central and regional level (single universities, hospitals, research centers, voluntary associations and NGOs).

These and other topics will be addressed during the conference entitled “Life Sciences and Biomedical Technologies” which will take place in Palermo on October 5th and 6th.

The conference is going to focus the evolution of life sciences and health technologies (research and innovation in the biomedical field), on various research projects, applications and experiences of cooperation in this part of the world characterized in its millennial history of many cultural, scientific and technological processes and developments.

The final objective is the creation of a Mediterranean Health Technology Observatory
