Pharmaceutical Flow Cytometry & Imaging 2014
November 19th & 20th 2014
We are happy to announce the dates for the 4th Pharmaceutical Flow Cytometry & Imaging meeting, to be held at the GSK Conference Centre, GSK Ware, UK, on the 19th & 20th November 2014. This meeting continues to be the ideal forum for users of flow cytometry & imaging systems within drug discovery and drug development to get together, share expertise and innovation, and discuss pitfalls, successes and ideas for the future.
Following on from the great success and positive feedback that our previous meetings generated, we are continuing to include topics of current interest and encourage discussion of the changing face of drug discovery. Typical attendees will be colleagues from small-to mid-sized biotech companies, contract research organisations and global pharmaceutical companies. The content of this free two day meeting will also include other industrial-based themes covering the drug development journey from discovery to clinical evaluation.
Topics over two days will include the use of flow cytometry and imaging in:
Lead Generation – high throughput / high content screening
Pharmaceutical drug development – including monoclonal antibodies and fragments
Drug attrition – safety and secondary pharmacology
Stem cells – application in discovery research and therapy
Biomarkers – method validation, clinical study support & outsourcing
New techniques and applications – novel agents, instruments and analysis
Phenotypic Screening – complex and cell based assays
Personalised Health Care – cell-based biomarkers, companion diagnostics and device development
Review : Pharmaceutical Flow Cytometry & Imaging 2014
GSK, Ware, 19th+20th November 2014
This was the 4th bi-annual event, and proved to be as popular as ever …
Close to 300 delegates registered, and the Sir David Jack Conference Centre at Ware was buzzing with activity.
33 companies were represented in the trade show, which was just about as many as we could find space for !
Some very impressive technology and products were on display, and the technology prize voted for by the delegates was hotly competed :
– however, Intellicyt scooped it with their “iQue”.
A world-class line up of speakers and presentations were complemented by 25 poster presentations, poster taster spots and vendor snapshot sessions.
Miss Poonam Shah, of GSK won the delegate vote for Best Poster.
Feedback from delegates and exhibitors was good all round, so everybody had a great time and got a great deal out of participating.
Thanks to GSK for hosting us again, and to event sponsors Eurofins and SBI2.
Thanks also to all our speakers who gave their time for free, and to the volunteer scientific committee :
– Rob Jepras GSK
– James Pilling AZ
– David Lanham Eurofins
– Ben Powney EISAI
– Jennifer Hincks Huntingdon Life Sciences
– Theo Dare GSK
