SELECTBIO's 3rd Annual Advances in Automation & Robotics  conference will cover robotics in biobanking, drug discovery & development and aspects of compound management.

With a demand in biobanking for high quality specimens, part of this track will explore preparation techniques of extracted cellular material and human biological specimens in order to obtain accurate, reliable and standardised data. An important part of drug discovery is managing compound libraries efficiently, with ever increasing costs and challenges in sample storage, this conference will discuss problems and highlight solutions. Also, we will present the most up-to-date approaches for robotics as well as automation as they are being deployed in the drug discovery and development organizations worldwide. The presentations in this conference track will complement the exhibits showcasing relevant vendors and products in this space.

Running alongside the Advances in Automation & Robotics conference will be the ELA exhibition, covering the latest technological advances and associated services from leading solution providers within this field. Registered delegates will also have access to the following co-located conference tracks, ensuring a cost effective trip: Advances in NGS & Big Data, High Content Analysis, Advances in Cellular Assays & Cell Culture and Advances in qPCR & dPCR.


Agenda Topics:
•    Automated Systems for Compound Storage & Management
•    Automation and Robotics in Analytical Laboratories
•    Robotics in Biobanking & Beyond
•    Robotics in Drug Discovery & Development

You can also present your research on a poster while attending the meeting. Submit an abstract for consideration now!
Poster Submission Deadline: 02 May 2014

Early Bird – register by 2 April 2014

Promising Class of New Cancer Drugs Cause Memory Loss in Mice
New findings from The Rockefeller University suggest that the original version of BET inhibitors causes molecular changes in mouse neurons, and can lead to memory loss in mice that receive it.
Electrical Control of Cancer Cells
Research led by scientists at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) has revealed a new electrical mechanism that can control these switches.
Signature of Microbiomes Linked to Schizophrenia
Studying microbiomes in throat may help identify causes and treatments of brain disorder.
Inflammation Linked to Colon Cancer Metastasis
A new Arizona State University research study led by Biodesign Institute executive director Raymond DuBois has identified for the first time the details of how inflammation triggers colon cancer cells to spread to other organs, or metastasize.
Structural Discoveries Could Aid in Better Drug Design
Scientists have uncovered the structural details of how some proteins interact to turn two different signals into a single integrated output.
Determining the Age of Fingerprints
Watch the imprint of a tire track in soft mud, and it will slowly blur, the ridges of the pattern gradually flowing into the valleys. Researchers have tested the theory that a similar effect could be used to give forensic scientists a way to date fingerprints.
Genetic Overlapping in Multiple Autoimmune Diseases May Suggest Common Therapies
CHOP genomics expert leads analysis of genetic architecture, with eye on repurposing existing drugs.
Surprising Mechanism Behind Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria Uncovered
Now, scientists at TSRI have discovered that the important human pathogen Staphylococcus aureus, develops resistance to this drug by “switching on” a previously uncharacterized set of genes.
Tissue Bank Pays Dividends for Brain Cancer Research
Checking what’s in the bank – the Brisbane Breast Bank, that is – has paid dividends for UQ cancer researchers.
Researchers Publish Landmark “Basket Study”
Researchers from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) have announced results from the first published basket study, a new form of clinical trial design that explores responses to drugs based on the specific mutations in patients’ tumors rather than where their cancer originated.
