Science Breakfast

Begin of page section: Contents:

On the first Wednesday of every month during the lecture term, BioTechMed-Graz organizes a Science Breakfast at the University of Graz (SZ 15.21, RESOWI Centre, Building A, 2nd floor).


Next Event:

The next BioTechMed-Graz Science Breakfast takes place on Wednesday, October 2, 2024 at 8.30 a.m. Dr. Susanne Sattler from the Department of Pharmacology at the Medical University of Graz will give a talk to "Growing up in Science. Taking a peek behind the CV of Susanne Sattler", she will provide an insight into her scientific career and talk about the challenges and obstacles that have arisen in her professional career.

Registration until September 30, 2024


Past Events:

The last BioTechMed-Graz Science Breakfast before summer break took place on Wednesday, May 8, 2024 at 8.30 a.m. Alexander Loder, PhD from the Performance and Quality Management at the University of Graz will give a lecture on the topic “Data Storytelling”.

The more data-driven research and society gets, the more important become data presentation skills. Alexander Loder gave insights, why you cannot trust your brain, how (not) to lie with numbers and statistics,what a good plot needs and the communication and presentation skills you should be training. Most importantly, data storytelling can and should be fun, for both researchers and recipients. (Digest - German only)

The next BioTechMed-Graz Science Breakfast took place on Wednesday, April 10, 2024 at 8.30 a.m. Assoz. Prof. Martin Holler from the Department of Mathematics and Scientific Computing at the University of Graz gave a lecture at the BioTechMed-Graz Science Breakfast on Wednesday, April 10, 2024 on the topic “How to deal with the black box - uncertainty quantification for AI-based image reconstruction methods”.

In the past decade, machine learning has revolutionized the field of computational imaging, leading to unprecedented results in image quality across applications such as image super resolution or text-to-image generation. While in particular the latter has received a lot of media attention recently, the influence of machine learning also extends to classical image reconstruction problems in biomedical imaging, including MR, PET, or CT. Taking MR imaging as an example, in this talk Martin Holler will explain the main principles of successful machine-learning-based image reconstruction methods. He will then address the risks and shortcomings of these methods and discuss how they can be controlled using techniques from uncertainty quantification. (Digest - German only)

The first BioTechMed-Graz Science Breakfast in 2024 took place on Wednesday, March 6, 2024 at 8.30 a.m. Gernot Plank from the MedUni Graz gave a lecture on the topic “Digital Medicine – Medicine of the Future”.

Digital medicine is an interdisciplinary field that uses advanced digital technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), big data analytics, and mobile health platforms to improve patient care. These digital technologies hold high promise to revolutionize medicine by making medical treatments more precise, efficient personalized and accessible, but they also pose various risks such as privacy concerns, diagnostic and therapeutic malpractice and related liability issues. Prof. Planks talk aimed to provide a big picture view on these important trends, with a more detailed glimpse into the specific application of using “digital twins” of patients for stratification and therapy planning. (Digest - German only)
