East Port zve na seminář: Establishing Tissue Engineering Models for Physiological Drug Testing

Space shuttles to Mars, extra-speed internet, the smartphones, drones and artificial intelligence... Isn´t it time that also biologist step up their game and get over some old techniques from the 50´s? Join this seminar and learn how to improve cell culturing.

The seminar will cover these topics:

  • primary cells vs cell lines
  • in vitro studies vs in vivo studies
  • 3D vs 2D
  • dynamic vs static cultures

The seminar is free of charge, but we require registration of each participant:

Registration, 24.10.2018 Praha, IMG ASCR

Registration, 25.10.2018 Brno, Masaryk University




The seminar will take place on Wednesday, October 24th 2018 in Prague in the Institute of Molecular Genetics of the Academy of Sciences (from 10am till 12am in a seminar room on the ground floor behind lifts) and on Thursday, October 25th 2018 in Brno at Masaryk University Campus (from 10am till 12am, in a seminar room 114, first floor, building A5). 


Snacks and Beverages will be provided.
