SLAS2018 SLAS Americas Sample Management Symposium

Brand Identity, dates and location

Register now to attend a brand new event from SLAS — 2018 SLAS Americas Sample Management Symposium: Managing Samples from Bench to Clinic, November 13-14, 2018, in Boston, MA. With a program curated by practicing sample management experts, this event will impart the latest education, case studies and best practice in sample management, with a focus on drug discovery processes.

Prevalent trends that will be addressed at the Symposium include:

  • The rules of sample storage and management of samples are being rewritten — biological compounds and samples require the same attention and care previously paid only to small molecule libraries.
  • Sample management groups increasingly support a growing array of human disease relevant assays and models.
  • Quality programs and regulatory awareness are necessary when handling and providing samples in support of clinical studies and regulated bioanalysis.
  • Ever-growing collaboration between academic, government and commercial institutions is forcing an increased emphasis on best practices for sharing samples. Learn how your organization should navigate this changing landscape.

Read the Letter from the Symposium Chair Sue Holland Crimmin, Ph.D. GlaxoSmithKline, for additional details.
