Screening Europe

SELECTBIO is delighted to announce that Screening Europe is back.   The conference will be covering many subjects, with the first session being Phenotypic Screening. We are pleased to welcome our Keynote Speakers in this area: David Swinney from the Institute for Rare and Neglected Diseases Drug Discovery.  David will discuss applying phenotypic screening to drug discovery and its value.  Gerardo Tucatti from the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne will present on label-free cellular imaging applications and their integration in the screening strategy.  Our third and final Keynote Speaker, Lorenz Mayr, AstraZeneca, will be talking in the Cell Based Models for HCA session; his talk will centre around AstraZeneca’s use of cell lines derived from human embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells in drug discovery.

The conference will also focus on academic drug discovery, novel approaches to imaging and data analysis for high content screening and RNAi screening; we will hear from experts in their various fields and where their research has led them.

Other Speakers:

  • Jens Peter von Kries, Head of Screening, FMP/Leibniz Institute for Molecular Pharmacology
  • Jani Saarela, Operational Manager, Screening Unit, Institute for Molecular Medicine Finland
  • Kamyar Hadian, Head, Assay Development and Screening Platform, HelmholtzZentrum München
