Cambridge Healthtech Institute (CHI) is pleased to announce the Third Annual FAST: Functional Analysis and Screening Technologies Congress. Now in its third year, the FAST Congress brings you the latest technologies and research in cellular screening.

The Third Annual Phenotypic Drug Discovery meeting will return with new updates and case studies in phenotypic screening, high-content analysis, physiologically-relevant cellular models, chemical genomics and chemical proteomics. The rapidly evolving area of 3D cellular models will be addressed by two back-to-back meetings, with the Inaugural 3D Cell Culture: Organoid, Spheroid, and Organ-on-a-Chip Models meeting focusing on the new predictive cellular models for drug discovery and toxicity assessment. It will review the use of primary and stem cells, complex co-culture cell models, tumor spheroid models, novel organ-on-a-chip models for efficacy and safety screening, functional analysis, and compound profiling. The Third Annual Screening and Functional Analysis of 3D Models meeting will follow with case studies of phenotypic and high-content screening of complex 3D cellular systems for compound and target selection.

The 2014 Congress attracted more than 250 senior delegates, representing over 160 companies from 20 countries. With half of the attendees from big pharma and biotech and a third from academia and government, the FAST Congress offers exclusive networking opportunities with diverse international attendance. Please join our focused Screening event and learn from 60+ scientific presentations, an assortment of educational courses, 20+ exhibitors and your fellow expert delegates. We look forward to seeing you at the event.
