Save the Date & Call for Presenters: Cell Based Assays & BioAnalytical Method Development 2010

In 2010, we are combining the Cell Based Assays and Bioanalytical Development Conferences to provide one comprehensive event that encompasses both areas, yet leaving time to dive deeply into the content of each one using separate track sessions. It will take place October 4-6, 2010 in San Francisco, California

Visit the Cell Based Assays website for further updates!

Would you like to be a presenter at Cell Based Assays or Bioanalytical Development?
We invite you to submit a proposal for a speaking opportunity directly to Anne Reel, Senior Conference Director, by April 23rd, 2010 at the very latest. Send to or call 919-676-0306.

Submission Guidelines & Details

We expect that the conference will attract between 75-125 attendees. For consideration, please e-mail with the following information by April 23, 2010
