9th Imaging in Cancer Drug Development

13 Mar 2013 - 14 Mar 2013 - London, UK



Bookmark and Share


Join SMI at the anticipated 9th annual Imaging in Cancer Drug Development conference in March 2013 that will be the ultimate opportunity to witness presentations on the current developments surrounding oncology, pre-clinical & clinical imaging, technical innovations and advancements, imaging biomarkers in cancer drug development and the future of imaging. 

With a reputation for attracting the industry’s leading figures, this year's agenda offers an unmatched opportunity for debate and resolution of key challenges and current advances in oncology imaging. 

KEY TOPICS FOR 2013 INCLUDE:

Latest developments in fluorescence and bioluminescence for drug monitoring in xenografts

Novel target identification and lead discovery in preclinical biomarkers and radiochemistry

Strengths and limitations of whole body optical imaging with X-ray micro CT and multiphoton intravital microscopy

Overcoming challenges in nuclear tracers for multiscale imaging in oncology

Current application of PET/SPET modalities and a review of PFS (progression-free survival)

Practical tools for business expansion in the current economic climate

Keeping Tumor Growth at Bay
Engineers at Washington University in St. Louis found a way to keep a cancerous tumor from growing by using nanoparticles of the main ingredient in common antacid tablets.
Cancer Cells Kill Off Healthy Neighbours
Cancer cells create space to grow by killing off surrounding healthy cells, according to UK researchers working with fruit flies.
Future of Medicine Could be Found in a Tiny Crystal Ball
A Drexel University materials scientist has discovered a way to grow a crystal ball in a lab. Not the kind that soothsayers use to predict the future, but a microscopic version that could be used to encapsulate medication in a way that would allow it to deliver its curative payload more effectively inside the body.
Bile Acid Supports Production of Blood Stem Cells
A research group at Lund University has been able to show that bile acid is transferred from the mother to the foetus via the placenta to enable the foetus to produce blood stem cells.
Chemical Used to Replace BPA is Potentially Toxic
This study is the first to examine the effects of BPA and BPS on brain cells and genes that control the growth and function of organs involved in reproduction.
A Better Model for Parkinson's
Scientists at EPFL solve a longstanding problem with modeling Parkinson’s disease in animals. Using newfound insights, they improve both cell and animal models for the disease, which can propel research and drug development.
Improving Delivery of Poorly Soluble Drugs Using Nanoparticles
A technology that could forever change the delivery of drugs is undergoing evaluation by the Technology Evaluation Consortium™ (TEC). Developed by researchers at Northeastern University, the technology is capable of creating nanoparticle structures that could deliver drugs into the bloodstream orally – despite the fact that they are normally poorly soluble.
Toxicity Testing With Cultured Liver Cells
Microreactor replaces animal testing.
Neural Networks Adapt to the Presence of a Toxic HIV Protein
HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) afflict approximately half of HIV infected patients.
Faster Drug Discovery?
Startup develops more cost-effective test for assessing how cells respond to chemicals.
