The Institute for Molecular Medicine Finland (FIMM) has for several years been spearheading Pharma collaborations from the University of Helsinki. The “FIMM meets Pharma” webinar series aims to showcase the current scientific frameworks and technological capabilities of FIMM and spark interest with pharmaceutical partners to initiate new projects and collaborations. The webinar series will showcase some examples of successful research collaboration between our research community and Finnish and international companies.
During this September webinar, we will focus on how genomic data can support drug development and medical discoveries.
