TechTalk 12 - In Vitro Screening

Date: June 1
Time: 15.00 - 17.00 hrs.
Location: De Stal, Darwinweg 1, 2333 CR Leiden

Drug development is a time consuming and costly process. What if we could increase the efficiency of this process? New screening methodologies can make a difference. In this TechTalk, state of the art technologies for in vitro screening are presented and their potential for improving future drug development discussed.
