Industry News: 5th annual conference on Cell-Based Assays

09 Jul 2012

SMi’s 5th annual Cell Based Assays conference will reflect the significant change driving current development in 3D cell culture, Ion Channels as drug targets, Primary Cell Assays and Stem Cells. Cell-Based Assays is the place for senior scientists from assay development, pharmacology, screening and related fields to meet and discuss progress in the area and exchange ideas moving forward.

Ion channels are widely regarded as incredibly important therapeutic targets for treating a wide range of pathophysiologies. The expert speaker line up through day one discusses ion channels and how they can be effectively targeted. Cell-Based Assays 2012 will also focus on 3D cell culture and how recent improvements in this culture method have helped revolutionize and provide physiologically accurate pre-clinical drug research.
