Programme Information

The programme, spanning 3 days, is divided into plenary lectures and parallel sessions. The plenary lectures, by some of the worlds most distinguished speakers, takes place at the beginning and end of each day. The rest of the programme is condensed into sessions, which cover particular research areas and comprise of a series of lectures by prominent scientists.


Technology Showcases

Technology Showcases are 2-hour presentation slots that run alongside the academic sessions. They are a great way of finding out about new product developments from leading life-science companies that can enhance your research. Already registered for a technology showcase:
