Advances in Cell Engineering, Imaging and Screening

A VIB Tools & Technologies Conference

VIB’s Tools and Technologies meetings provide a forum for top academic speakers and scientists from both established and emerging companies to present their latest scientific achievements and exciting technological solutions.

The first edition of Advances in Cell Engineering, Imaging and Screening will bring together some of the most highly regarded Academics and Companies in the field. The conference will focus on novel technologies through presentations in several sessions:

  • New imaging and microscopy tools
  • Super-resolution Imaging
  • IPS and cell reprogramming
  • 3D cell culture and organoids
  • Cell manipulation
  • In vivo cell-based assays
  • Cytometry
  • High Content Screening.

In addition to a great scientific and technology program, the conference will provide ample opportunities to network during the breaks, poster sessions, the conference dinner @ 'The Faculty Club' and our ‘Meet the Expert’ session!

Meet the Expert session with: ‘Prof. Christine Mummery - Leiden University Medical Center, NL’

We offer all junior researchers the opportunity to join our ‘Meet the Expert' session with Prof. Christine Mummery. During an informal round table discussion on the 17th of November, PhD students and postdocs will have the exclusive opportunity to ask any question/advise related to their research and careers. If you are interested in joining the session, then send an e-mail to conferences@vib.be. Seating is very limited so make sure to reserve a spot soon.
