This year, InnaSCo and Frontinov propose a joint scientific meeting dealing with inflammation, including presentations of prestigious speakers. This meeting will take place next week as a 2-day webinar, on the 20th and 21st October.

The first day will be dedicated to quantitative biology approaches for exploration of inflammatory responses. This part of the seminar will begin with an introduction about the Frontinov Network by Dr Nadine Laguette and Dr Petr Cigler, followed by sessions of scientific presentations by talented scientists in the field. Among them we will have the pleasure to hear as keynote speakers Pr Mathias Heikenwälder (DKFZ, Heidelberg, Germany) who will talk about immune cells in chronic hepatitis, and Christoph Bock (CeMM, Vienna, Austria) about and single-cell analysis of epigenetic cell states in immunology.

Several companies, including HCS Pharma, will present their technologies during session n°2. From our side, our project leader Elodie will show how to create innovative 3D cell culture models with BIOMIMESYS hydroscaffold as a relevant extracellular matrix surrogate, and our expertise in HCS.

The Second day, in memory of Jürg Tschopp, will begin with a presentation of InnaSCo by Dr Marie-Cécile Michallet. Scientist will then present their data in the multidisciplinary area of inflammation and cell death signaling in 3 sessions. A special keynote lecture will be given by Dr Vishva Dixit from Genentech (San Francisco, CA, USA).

You can find the programme here. Looking forward to showing our HCS platform and BIOMIMESYS technology for 3D cell culture on this occusion!
