Attend CHI’s 2nd Annual FAST: Functional Analysis & Screening Technologies Congress, Nov. 17-19, 2014, Boston, MA, to improve in vitro cell models and phenotypic screening to advance drug discovery and development.

Cambridge Healthtech Institute (CHI) presents its 2nd Annual FAST: Functional Analysis & Screening Technologies Congress on November 17-19, 2014 in Boston, MA. Join our community of 250+ biologists, screening managers, assay developers, engineers and pharmacologists dedicated to improving in vitro cell models and phenotypic screening to advance drug discovery and development at 6 conferences:

  • Phenotypic Drug Discovery (Part I & II)
  • Engineering Functional 3D Models
  • Organotypic Culture Models for Toxicology 
  • Screening and Functional Analysis of 3D Models
  • Physiologically-Relevant Cellular Tumor Models for Drug Discovery

Plus! Choose to attend multiple short courses and view exhibits and posters. Register and view full details at
