SBS 13th Annual Conference & Exhibition Chairs Welcome You to Montréal!
SBS Achievement Award Presentation, Eric Lander
Montréal, one of Canada’s most vibrant and beautiful cities, known for its old world charm and French “joie de vivre,” provides an idyllic setting for the Society for Biomolecular Sciences 13th Annual Conference & Exhibition.
The 2007 scientific program encompasses many of the core themes from the most popular sessions from the previous SBS conferences, including target biology and screening strategies, as well as presentations on new instrumentation and technologies. Additional core sessions will focus on challenges and automation solutions to compound management, high-throughput screening using native cells, and novel approaches to functional target validation. We are also pleased to announce that we have partnered with the International Society for Analytical Cytology to include a topical session on high-content cellular screening, and with Amphora Corp, the Environmental Protection Agency, the NIH Chemical Genomics Center, and the National Toxicology Program to include a topical session on toxicity profiling using high-throughput and high-content technologies.
The conference committee and session chairs have ensured that the SBS 2007 conference will look beyond small molecule drug development by presenting sessions on translational medicine, biomarkers and discovery and development of immunotherapeutics, including vaccines and monoclonal antibodies.
This inaugural spring meeting will highlight the significant and exciting recent advances in the cutting-edge science that underpins the discovery and development of new therapeutics. We invite you to join us at the Palais Des Congrès de Montréal in April to actively participate in what will surely be one of the most enlightening and memorable SBS conferences to date!
