SELECTBIO is pleased to invite you to attend the first of our innovative online conferences; Drug Discovery & Development (DDD 2014). Using a pioneering new platform especially developed for scientific events, this event will be broadcast to your PC or mobile device on 17th-18th June 2014.

During this event, the hottest topics in Drug Discovery will be addressed in a webinar-style auditorium with the opportunity for live Q&A at the end of each talk. Featuring an array of leading international speakers, this event aims to provide you with an insight into the latest developments in the design and development of drugs. Focus will be given to current developments in screening design, assay technology and compound management, as well as the emerging use of nanotechnology for drug delivery. Presentations will also highlight the increasing importance that academic centres play in drug discovery efforts, including drug repurposing and drug discovery for orphan diseases.
   
Benefits of attending this online event:

-    Opportunity to view posters, including an interactive session with the poster presenters.
-    Access to a virtual exhibit hall, enabling you to catch up with the latest technological developments in the industry via video, downloadable applications, brochures and interaction with booth staff.
-    View others in attendance and chat with them privately or in open forums.
-    No costs! No expensive flights, hotels or delegate fees.
-    Come & go as you please to fit around your busy life - you can attend at home or work using a PC or mobile device.

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.
