Symposium on nanoparticle-based technologies for cell tracking

We are delighted to announce this international symposium that will take place at the University of Liverpool!

There is a growing interest in techniques that allow the in vivo imaging of cells that have been transplanted into animals and humans, which stems from the need for a better understanding of cellular fate in biological processes. Cancer research and cell based therapies are two fields of research that would greatly benefit from real-time non-invasivein vivo cell imaging, allowing the possibility to follow cell migration, distribution and engraftment following transplantation. This would allow the determination of the fate and metastatic potential of cancer cells in animal models, as well as the tracking of cells employed in regenerative therapies (stem cells) or immunotherapy (immune effector cells).

This symposium will be a forum for discussion on the latest research and challenges concerning imaging technologies that make use of nanoparticles as contrast agents for in vivo cell imaging.

We have a range of outstanding speakers from the UK, Switzerland, Belgium, France, Germany, Canada and the USA. The call for abstract is open for both selected talks and posters.

See you in Liverpool in July!
