The SSIEM Annual Symposium 2022, Freiburg, Germany, 30/08/2022-02/09/2022 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 19 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

Environment meets Metabolism

How do environmental factors influence health and disease, what role does the microbiome play and shouldn’t we prescribe exercise in metabolic patients?

Technology meets Metabolism

Single cell RNA sequencing, mechanistic modeling of human metabolism and the hot topics of big data and artificial intelligence in medicine will be addressed.

Ethics meets Genetics

The opportunities and challenges as well as the ethical aspects of whole genome screening will be explored. A lifetime’s knowledge at birth? What do we actually want to know? A plenary discussion with all speakers will end the session.

Reality meets Genetics

In this session, we want to measure what matters to rare disease patients and will focus on academia-driven medicine developments as well as on challenges and opportunities for social entrepreneurs. Sophie Hauenherm will introduce with a dance into the topic: Behind human understanding!

Metabolism meets Genetics

We will explore how genetics changed the face of mitochondrial disease and want to understand variant pathogenicity using multi-omic pipelines. Metabolism is also influenced by the epigenetic clock, a new approach.

Epigenetics meets Genetics

We will learn about clinical epigenomics in metabolic diseases. Is epigenetics the 3rd dimension of phenotypic variation and disease risk? In addition a human Mendelian disorder of the DNA demethylation machinery will be introduced to us.
