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. www.FASTcongress.com

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 www.FASTcongress.com

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.
Mitochondria Shown to Trigger Cell Ageing
An international team of scientists has for the first time shown that mitochondria, the batteries of the cells, are essential for ageing.
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.
Editing of Embryos Approved in the UK
The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) has approved a research application from the Francis Crick Institute to use new "gene editing" techniques on human embryos.
Microbes Take Their Vitamins
Scientists exploit organisms' needs in order to track 'vitamin mimics' in bacteria.
Machine Learning Uncovers Unknown Bacterial Features
Technique robustly identified characteristic gene expression patterns in response to antibiotics, low oxygen conditions.
CRISPR-Cas9 Gene Editing Advances Again
UC Berkeley researchers have made a major improvement in CRISPR-Cas9 technology that achieves an unprecedented success rate of 60 percent when replacing a short stretch of DNA with another.
Disrupting Cell’s Supply Chain Freezes Cancer Virus
When the cancer-causing Epstein-Barr virus moves into a B-cell of the human immune system, it tricks the cell into rapidly making more copies of itself, each of which will carry the virus.
Why Do Some Infections Persist?
In preparing for the possibility of an antibiotic onslaught, some bacterial cultures adopt an all-for-one/one-for-all strategy that would make a socialist proud, University of Vermont researchers have found.
ASCB: A CELLebration of Cell Biology
The last major congress of the year, ASCB is less a platform for launching new products, but one for confirming and consolidating the trends that have emerged over the past 12 months.
