BioTrinity 2019

30 April 2019 - 01 May 2019

BioTrinity 2019 is taking place from the 30th April – 1st May at etc.venues 155 Bishopsgate in London. Now in its 13th year, BioTrinity remains the leading Life Sciences Biopartnering and Investment conference in Europe, and generates unrivalled opportunities for life science companies, academics, investors, and major pharmaceutical players to come together to do deals and establish collaborations. BioTrinity 2019 incorporates significant improvements including a move to etc.venues 155 Bishopsgate, a central London location. This new venue allows us to keep all activity on one floor which will focus the energy and facilitate interaction, thereby maximising visibility for our sponsors, exhibitors, BioLaunchPad® presenters and creating even more opportunities for networking and informal meetings. The focus of the 2019 conference is to look at 'What’s new' in the industry, and we’ll be providing updates and insight on both technical and financial developments across a wide range of key therapeutics areas – have a look at the Draft Programme. BioTrinity is developed and organised by OBN, the not-for-profit Membership organisation supporting and bringing together the life sciences industry, their corporate partners and investors.

Advances in Cell-Based Screening 2019

22 May 2019 - 24 May 2019

The third ELRIG meeting on Advances in Cell Based Profiling in Drug Discovery will be held on the 22nd and 23rd of May 2019 at the AstraZeneca R&D premises in Gothenburg. This interactive 2-day event will host leading scientists from academia and industry to discuss current and future formats for cell based assays. This time the bi-annual meeting will be accompanied by a satellite meeting on Chemical Biology on May 24th, organized by key academic infrastructures in the Nordic countries. Our aim is to create an open and inspiring environment for networking between biologists and chemists, working towards a common view on expectations from our cell assays and their use for target identification, target validation and compound profiling purposes. Cell based assays are utilized at all stages of drug discovery to explore disease mechanisms and to identify novel molecular therapeutics. Significant advancements are being made towards cell reagents and formats that provide a more accurate biological context, aiming at improving translation to human physiology/pathophysiology. Their implementation is much needed for improving success rates in drug discovery, but there are significant challenges associated with reliable and affordable reagent supply and validation of improved translational power to justify costs. This meeting serves to explore recent advancements and to discuss their practical implementation in drug and chemical probe discovery and validation.
