Cell Culture 2016: 2nd- 4th February 2016



Cell culture has matured to become the pivotal technology in biopharmaceutical research, development and production, and its use in this and other areas continues to expand rapidly.

This event will bring together leading researchers from many backgrounds in an informal setting, with plenty of opportunity for discussion and debate.

A late registration fee applies after December 20th 2015


This event is suited to anyone with an academic or professional interest in Cell Culture and related technologies; including researchers, senior scientists, postgraduate students, laboratory technicians, those who work in research and development of pharmaceuticals and technology.

This event has an open abstract session.  
Abstracts can be submitted on any subject related to cell culture
The Deadline for abstract submissions for oral presentation is November 10th 2015
Abstracts for poster presentation only can be submitted up to two weeks before the event
You can download the instructions for authors at

This event has  CPD accreditation
