Cell Culture Technology: Recent Advances, Future Prospects

09 Mar 2012 - 09 Mar 2012 - London, UK

Venue: The Penridge Suite, 470 Bowes Road, London N11 1NL
Chair:  Dr John Davis, Chairman of the UK Branch of the European Society for Animal Cell Technology

In the last 4 decades mammalian cell culture has matured from being merely a research tool into being one of the foundations of the biopharmaceutical industry, and its use is continuing to expand rapidly. In vitro models are replacing animals in many tests and assays; its enormous potential in the fields of stem cell and regenerative medicine has hardly started to be realized; and its utility in research grows ever faster.

 
This conference will examine some of the latest applications of cell culture technology, some that are still “over the horizon”, and some of the problems that must be solved before it can reach its full potential.
This event has CPD accreditation and will have a troubleshooting panel session.
