Technology Networks Sponsors Poster Prize at AMT 2006
Building on the success of AMT 2005, (London, UK), Select Biosciences assembled a world class list of influential speakers in Amsterdam last week for their 2nd annual Advances in Microarray Technology conference and exhibition.
Over 240 attendees enjoyed presentations from over 25 leading experts from academia and industry. The three day agenda covered topics including microfluidics, DNA microarrays and protein microarrays
Keynote presentations were given by:
- Dolores Cahill, Professor of Translational Science, University College Dublin, “Recent Applications of Protein Arrays: Discovery of Candidate Disease Biomarkers”
- Michael Pawlak, Head Protein Profiling, Natural and Medical Sciences Institute, “Making it Small: Protein Profiling Using Novel Reverse Phase Arrays”
- Ulf Landegren, Professor of Molecular Medicine, Uppsala University and Rudbeck Laboratory, “Tools to Probe Genes, Proteins, and their Interactions”
- Alvis Brazma, Head of Microarray Informatics Group, European Bioinformatics Institute, “High Throughput Data Management for Biomedical Research”
AMT 2006 also provided attendees with plenty of networking opportunities as well as time to explore the exhibition where 28 companies presented their latest products and technologies.
The meeting also featured 52 posters presenting research from both academia and industry. The award for the best poster presented at the summit was sponsored by the publishers of Lab-on-a-Chip.com and GenomicsProteomics.com, Technology Networks.
The review board decided that the poster entitled “A novel array-based assay for the detection of IgG-mediated food intolerance.” presented by Andrew Macdonald, Head of Microarray Technology at Genesis Diagnostics was most deserving of the award.
Select Biosciences have announced that they hope to build on the success of this year’s event with AMT 2007 which will be held in Edinburgh (15 – 16 May).
