XPOMET Event Podcast

Taros’ CEO invited to speak on the exclusive Podcast of the XPOMET© Medicinale in Berlin, 10 – 12 Oct 2019

Dortmund, September 2019 ++++

As modern medicine becomes increasingly complex and data-driven, traditional healthcare is being transformed into a dynamic, multi-layered and highly connected global ecosystem. In that sense the XPOMET© Medicinale inspires with the latest developments in healthcare, bringing together professionals and decision makers to discuss new collaborative models and products. As a serial biotech entrepreneur and co-leader of the collaborative innovation drug discovery platform European Lead Factory (ELF), Taros’ CEO Dr. Dimitrios Tzalis has been invited to the few selected speakers to contribute his expert opinion to the high level discussion on pioneering medicines, open innovation and future directions in drug discovery.

In the light of Dimitrios’ presenation at the XPOMET© Medicinale, he was invited to give a pre-talk about his opinion on the transformation of the drug discovery process and his activities to contribute to that ambitious mission.
