Stem Cell Congress – London
Discounted Attendee Passes Available for a Limited Time
Experts predict that the stem cell industry will be worth over $5 billion by 2014, reflecting the enormous potential of stem cell technologies in the pharmaceutical industry. In the light of this Oxford Global Conferences are proud to present our Stem Cell Congress, to be held on the 4th & 5th November 2013 at the Copthorne Tara, London Kensington.
Over this two day conference our esteemed experts will offer invaluable insights into the latest stem cell applications in translational research as well as exploring advances in bioprocessing and engineering technologies.
Day 1 – Stem Cells as a Tool in Discovery and Development
- Improving drug screening efficiency with stem cell models
- High-content and high-throughput screening tools for stem cell research
- Stem cells for toxicity and safety studies
- Application of iPSC in translational research
- The use of pluripotent stem cells in disease modeling
- Stem cell based systems for gene expression profiling
- Collaborative methods to accelerate iPSC research
Day 2 – Stem Cell & iPSC Bioprocessing and Manufacturing
- Cell manufacturing: meeting quality, quantity and safety requirements
- Overcoming upstream and downstream process challenges
- Stem cell engineering: ensuring automation and validation
- Reprogramming and transdifferentiation techniques
- Ensuring controlled growth and differentiation
- Cell banking to preserve stem cell lines
- Developing 3D tissue culture technology
Co-located with our 2nd Annual Cell Culture & Bioprocessing Congress, this event will attract over 200 senior attendees from leading pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, biotechnology, diagnostics, academics, CRO and solution provider companies including senior VPs, directors, & managers.
You will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with leading solution providers and senior-level industry peers through a series of formal and informal networking opportunities.
