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

Retractable Protein Nanoneedles
The ability to control the transfer of molecules through cellular membranes is an important function in synthetic biology; a new study from researchers at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and Harvard Medical School (HMS) introduces a novel mechanical method for controlling release of molecules inside cells.
Iron in the Blood Could Cause Cell Damage
Concentrations of iron similar to those delivered through standard treatments can trigger DNA damage within 10 minutes, when given to cells in the laboratory.
Advancing Synthetic Biology
Living systems rely on a dizzying variety of chemical reactions essential to development and survival. Most of these involve a specialized class of protein molecules — the enzymes.
Insights into the Function of the Main Class of Drug Targets
About thirty percent of all medical drugs such as beta-blockers or antidepressants interact with certain types of cell surface proteins called G protein coupled receptors.
Honey’s Potential to Save Lives
The healing powers of honey have been known for thousands of years.
Muscles on-a-Chip
This study may help explain why stem cell-based therapies have so far shown limited benefits for heart attack patients in clinical trials.
3-D Printed Lifelike Liver Tissue for Drug Screening
A team led by engineers at the University of California, San Diego has 3D-printed a tissue that closely mimics the human liver's sophisticated structure and function. The new model could be used for patient-specific drug screening and disease modeling.
Envigo Rat Models Proven to be Susceptible to Intra-Vaginal HSV-2 Infection and Protectable
