SELECTBIO's CellTech2014 will feature an integrated program of tracks designed to fully describe the latest trends in analysis of cells, cell-based assays and high-content phenotypic assays.

This three-track conference will also feature Flow Cytometry and Bioprocessing, which includes up-stream and down-stream segments.

SELECTBIO's coverage of these topics will include speakers from academic institutions, as well as commercial organisations, in a manner that brings together the basic science with the applications in these three growing market segments.


Agenda Topics:
High Content Screening & Cell Based Assays
•    Advances in Instrumentation & Screening Platforms
•    Cell Based Assays for Conventional & Unconventional Target Interrogation (GPCR, Kinase)
•    High Content Flow Cytometry
•    Phenotypic & Toxicity Cell Based Assays using High Content Approaches
•    Tool Box Availability for Image Processing & Analysis
Cellular Analysis
•    Characterisation of Circulating Tumor Cells
•    Circulating Tumor Cells as Prognostic or Predictive Biomarkers for Cancer
•    Detection, Isolation & Capture of Circulating Tumor Cells
•    Identification & Characterisation of Cancer Stem Cells
•    Role of Cancer Stem Cells in Progression of Disease and Metastasis
Cell Culture & Bioprocessing
•    3D Cell Culture
•    Applications of Cell Culture Technologies
•    Optimising Cell Line Development
•    Preventing Cell Line Cross Contamination
•    Upstream and Downstream BioProcessing for Therapeutic Monoclonal Antibodies and        Recombinant Proteins
•    Vaccine Production Approaches

Also featured will be an exhibition with vendors displaying the most-recent technologies and products in these fields.


Poster Submission Deadline is 10 January 2014

Registration is open – Check out our 2for1 offer – available for a limited time.

Common Cell Transformed into Master Heart Cell
By genetically reprogramming the most common type of cell in mammalian connective tissue, researchers at the University of Wisconsin—Madison have generated master heart cells — primitive progenitors that form the developing heart.
Improving Regenerative Medicine
Lab-created stem cells may lack key characteristics, UCLA research finds.
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.
Therapeutic Approach Gives Hope for Multiple Myeloma
A new therapeutic approach tested by a team from Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital (CIUSSS-EST, Montreal) and the University of Montreal gives promising results for the treatment of multiple myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow currently considered incurable with conventional chemotherapy and for which the average life expectancy is about 6 or 7 years.
Cat Stem Cell Therapy Gives Humans Hope
By the time Bob the cat came to the UC Davis veterinary hospital, he had used up most of his nine lives.
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.
New Biomarker to Assess Stem Cells Developed
A research team led by scientists from UCL have found a way to assess the viability of 'manufactured' stem cells known as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). The team's discovery offers a new way to fast-track screening methods used in stem cell research.
Tricked-Out Immune Cells Could Attack Cancer
New cell-engineering technique may lead to precision immunotherapies.
Edited Stem Cells Offer Hope of Precision Therapy for Blindness
Findings raise the possibility of treating blinding eye diseases using a patient's own corrected cells as replacement tissue.
