Mission

CIB promotes scientific communication between academics and companies with interests in biotechnologies and instrumentations.

CIB Objectives

Create a platform and an opportunity for scientists, clinicians and researchers to communicate about topics in advanced biotechnologies and instrumentations for application to clinical research.
Act as a bridge between academics and companies to understand the development of advanced biotechnologies instrumentations, and their potential for commercialization and clinical application.
Strengthen and enhance academic dialogue and information exchange between biotechnology companies, industries and manufacturers, thereby facilitating the development of collaborative projects or partnerships.

Discuss the use of new instrumentations and devices in clinical practice and feed back experience of the instrumentations and devices to the manufacturers

Focuses

1.    Cyto-pharmacology, metabolism, efficacy and survival
2.    The use of clinical proteomic technologies, tissue imaging proteomics, antibody microarray and biomarkers for diagnosis, therapy and prognosis of disease
3.    Clinical gene microarray technologies in diagnosis of disease
4.    Cellular mathematics, biophysics, bioinformatics and computational biology
5.    Functional and molecular imaging, cellular imaging, tissue imaging and in vivo imaging
6.    Flow cytometry, cellomics, metabomics, and stem cell biology
7.    Organ functional measurements
8.    Laser capture microdissection, molecular pathologies, tissue microarray, digital imaging analysis and morphometric systems
9.    Experimental magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), thermography, and ultrasound imaging technologies
10.   Tissue bioengineering technologies

Audience and participants

Scientists, clinicians, researchers and students from universities, institutes, hospitals, and companies working on medical biotechnologies and instrumentations.

Scientific News
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.
Hacking the Programs of Cancer Stem Cells
All tumor cells are the offspring of a single, aberrant cell, but they are not all alike.
Newfound Strength in Regenerative Medicine
A promising new approach uses direct mechanical stimulation to repair severely damaged skeletal muscles.
