In June 2015 we launched Stem Cells in Drug Discovery in Cambridge, United Kingdom to a great response! Featuring presentations from Lorenz Mayr, Joseph Wu and Chris Ward, over 90 people attended, from 9 different countries, including PhD students, Professors, Group Leaders, Directors, Global Heads and VPs of some of the world’s leading stem cell research centres.

We are looking to build the event for 2016 with an additional track, entitled Organ-on-a-Chip Europe, there will be even more talks, attendees and discussions. With human stem cells presenting a more accurate model for pre-clinical testing, this year’s agenda provides in depth insight into how stem cells are revolutionising in vitro disease models, assay development, toxicology studies and lead generation in drug discovery.

Agenda Topics

  • 3D Cell Based Models
  • Cellular Reproducibility and Robustness
  • Disease Modeling
  • Scale Up and Quality Control
  • Screening and Drug Discovery Assays
