4th Annual Exosomes & Single Cell Analysis Summit

18 Sep 2014 - 19 Sep 2014 - Town and Country Resort Hotel, San Diego, United States of America



Bookmark and Share


The Exosomes and Single Cell Analysis Summit 2014 features the most up-to-date topics in this expanding field and brings together an array of leading international speakers--the only event in its class, this conference aims to present the audience with the very latest developments in the study of extracellular vesicles (EVs) as well as the analysis of cells at the single cellular level (SCA).

It has become increasingly apparent that the differences between cells in the same population can be significant, and there is therefore a need for improved methods to capture and analyze individual cells such as circulating tumor cells (CTCs), cancer stem cells (CSCs), and the study of single cells for Companion Diagnostics (CDx) development.  This coupled with new approaches for capturing Exosomes and other classes of EVs is driving the field forward vis-à-vis development of biomarker assays, diagnostics development, as well as basic research on isolated individual components.

This conference track will also present the latest technologies/products in flow cytometry, FISH, immuno-magnetic capture, and other approaches for single cell analysis and exosome research via technology spotlight presentations and exhibitors in the co-located exhibit hall.

Single-cell transcriptome analysis can quantify tumor heterogeneity and reveal stepwise clonal evolution of a tumor--this is one of the areas explored in this conference track.

Running alongside the conference will be an exhibition covering the latest technological advances and associated services from leading solution providers within this field. Registered delegates will also have access to the co-located Point-of-Care Diagnostics World Congress and Lab-on-a-Chip & Microarray World Congress, providing ample opportunities for networking and ensuring a very cost-effective trip.

As Part of Registration, Delegates Receive Access to All Three Conference Tracks so as to Mix-and-Match Tracks, Topics, and Presentations, and Maximize Networking Opportunities.

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.
