CRISPR Summit
ID
877843
Dates
17 May 2017 - 18 May 2017
Location
London, United Kingdom
Abstract
There is no doubt about it, CRISPR is rapidly changing the way diseases are researched, and will soon revolutionize the way they are treated. However, challenges affecting the use of this technique is halting its overall progress and this summit is ready to address the key issues currently affecting CRISPR research.

Topics for debate will include all aspects of CRISPR, from the different techniques of delivering Cas9 to uncovering how to control the repair pathway. The summit will also be assessing the limitation of CRISPR technique and discover what key developments have allowed progress in understanding the unknown. Sessions on screening and bioinformatics will also be included to see how these tools have helped predict the outcome of the CRISPR/Cas9 system.

Whether you are already underway with using CRISPR in your research, or are considering implementing the technology, this conference is where you need to be in 2017!

London, United Kingdom
Abstract
SMi's 7th annual conference on Biobanking will bring together Europe’s leading biorepositories, regulatory representatives and scientific pioneers to strengthen knowledge in biosample management as well as explore future advances in areas such as mobile bio-banking and cloud based sample management. Understanding the ethical and regulatory framework as well as the impact of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on collaborative science in Europe will be a major focus. Plus, don’t miss keynote addresses from a selection of European biobanks currently adding value to clinical research through successful biobanking strategies including the European Sperm Bank, UK Biobank, UCL Baby Biobank, Auria Biobank and more. Exclusive updates from the European Commission and NIBSC-MHRA, will be just some of the event highlights for 2017. Join us this June for innovative discussions through a series of interactive presentations, panel discussions and roundtables, and address relevant and critical issues on how to improve your biobanking practice.
