SMi is proud to present its 4th annual conference on...
Cell-Based Assays
Monday 21st and Tuesday 22nd November 2011, Marriot Hotel, Regents Park, London

Over the years, SMi has built a reputation as the leading producer of events relating to Cell-Based Assays in Europe. Now in its 4th year, the event has continued to evolve in response to the demands of our delegates and the pharmaceutical industry marketplace. The event will consist of a two day conference and two post-conference workshops, with a focus on a range of topics relating to the challenges facing those involved in using and developing cell-based assays and their importance to the strategic future of R&D in pharma.

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. A dual focus on both strategic and regulatory concerns, alongside more specific scientific and technical analysis, supported with extensive case studies, ensures a truly comprehensive treatment of the most important issues.
