Black Forest Nanopore Meeting

BFNM 2023

The meeting will bring together scientists and engineers from multiple disciplines who are engaged in exploiting the huge potential of nanopore technologies. A special focus is dedicated to advancing approaches in single molecule protein sequencing, the analysis of epigenetic modifications, and their prospective integration into diagnostic workflows relevant to personalized and precision medicine. The BFNM 2023 is intended to foster early interaction between the multiple disciplines required for successful transition of these approaches into clinical practice. Scientific talks and posters are completed by an industrial forum reflecting the state of the commercial activities emanating from the field.

The conference takes place in the "Friedrichsbau" in the heart of Freiburg and is organized by the cluster nanodiag BW.

The historical city of Freiburg serves as stage of several social events as e.g. festive conference dinner and guided tours to discover the historical town and its lovely vineyards.
