Next-gen single-cell omics workshop 2024

(Anglais uniquement) Are you ready to explore the cutting-edge of single-cell technologies and their applications in biomedicine? Then join us for our next-gen single-cell omics workshop! A one-day, single-track event bringing together decision makers from the pharma and biotech industries, clinicians, start-ups, regulatory experts, and research organizations.

Event banner - Nextgen Cell omics

You will have the opportunity to network, learn, and collaborate with the best in the business: from decision makers in the pharma and biotech industries to clinicians, start-ups, regulatory experts, and research organizations.

Whether you are interested in discovering new solutions, developing new products, or overcoming new challenges, this workshop is for you. You will learn how single-cell technologies are transforming complex 3D models and tissue studies, enabling a deeper understanding of cell behaviour and function in drug testing, regenerative medicine, and clinical diagnostics. And how to:

  • Accelerate the translation of emerging solutions into clinical and therapeutical development applications
  • Develop innovative products or services based on groundbreaking technologies
  • Overcome barriers associated with the adoption of new methods and technologies in a regulated environment
