CHI's 13th Annual World Pharma Congress Westin Boston Waterfront, Boston, MA 5/21/2014 12:00:00 AM

CHI's 13th Annual World Pharma Congress 

May 21-23, 2014
Westin Boston Waterfront
Boston, Massachusetts 

After spending 12 years in Philadelphia Cambridge Healthtech Institute's 13th Annual World Pharma Congress is moving to Boston –taking place May 21-23, 2014 at the Westin Boston Waterfront hotel in Boston, MA. This year’s event is is buzzing with new findings and technologies that can potentially revolutionize the way in which traditional preclinical drug discovery is done. World Pharma Congress 2014 provides a forum for scientists and clinicians to meet to exchange ideas and launch collaborations.   

In recent years the World Pharma Congress has built its niche in effectively covering the latest preclinical strategies and technologies for driving better predictions early in the drug discovery process. This year the event will continue its coverage on novel preclinical models for tackling oncology and pain, while discussing ways to improve drug safety screening, formulations and drug delivery and process chemistry. 

This year we intend to make “Tackling Translational Challenges” an underlying theme for all our presentations and discussions and solicit the participation of attendees and exhibitors involved in preclinical work to join forces in identifying what should be done EARLY to ensure success along the drug development pipeline. We invite all scientists- chemists, biologists, pharmacologists, toxicologists and formulation experts- to help turn this event into a collaborative forum where knowledge is shared, ideas exchanged and collaborations cemented. We hope you can join the World Pharma Congress community and help shape the future of preclinical work being done in the pharmaceutical/biotechnology industry.

Get with the Beat! An In Vitro Assay for Cardiotox and Contractility in Human Cells

Originally aired March 20, 2013 

During this webinar, Andrew Bruening-Wright, PhD, Principal Scientist at ChanTest, provides a comprehensive overview on the evaluation of contractile activity of stem cell-derived human cardiomyocytes using impedance analysis, and Dinah Misner, PhD, from Genentech, presents a case study highlighting the use of ACEA Bioscience’s xCELLigence system in a new assay from ChanTest measuring contractility and cardiotoxicity.

Molecular Med Tri-Con 2014 San Francisco, CA 2/9/2014 12:00:00 AM

The 21st International Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference is the industry’s Preeminent Event on Molecular Medicine, focusing on Drug Discovery, Genomics, Diagnostics and Information Technology. Spanning six days this year, the Tri-Conference includes an expanded program that includes 6 symposia, 20 short courses, and 15 conference programs. For the first time in over 10 years we’re bringing back a dedicated conference on sequencing. As many will recall this event’s infancy was heavily devoted to the Human Genome Project and we are excited to reintroduce sequencing to this event.
