Cell Based Assays

05 Nov 2012 - 06 Nov 2012 - London, UK

Bookmark and Share

SMi’s 5th annual ‘Cell-Based Assays’ conference  will reflect the significant change driving current development in 3D cell culture, Ion Channels as drug targets, Primary Cell Assays and Stem Cells.. Cell-Based Assays is the place for senior scientists from assay development, pharmacology, screening and related fields to meet and discuss progress in the area and exchange ideas moving forward. 

Ion channels are widely regarded as incredibly important therapeutic targets for treating a wide range of pathophysiologies. Our expert speaker line up through day one discusses ion channels and how they can be effectively targeted. Cell-Based Assays 2012 will also focus on 3D cell culture and how recent improvements in this culture method have helped revolutionise and provide physiologically accurate pre-clinical drug research.

Key Reasons to Attend

Explore the latest drug targets and how they are being therapeutically targeted. 

Listen to the latest technologies and processes being utilised in cell based assays, including the most up to date 3D cell culture methods.

Discuss how to best utilise stem cells in preclinical drug research
