Better Cells for Better Health
2013 ESACT Meeting in Lille, France
Since its foundation 35 years ago, the ESACT Meeting has developed into the international reference event in animal cell technology, building on a tradition of combining both basic science and its application into industrial biotechnology.
Attended by participants from both academia and industry and featuring the most extensive vendor/supplier exhibition specific to animal cell technology and a unique social program, ESACT meetings are ideal venues for information exchange, inspiration, networking and partnership.
In 2013, the 23rd Meeting of the series will take place in France, at the Congress Centre of Lille (Lille Grand Palais). Lille is a beautiful city, born “out of the water” at around 1000 AD. Initially a Flemish city, it changed hands a few times to become Burgundian, then Spanish, and finally French in 1667. In the 19th century Lille was an industrial power and thrived in the metalwork, chemistry and textile industries. Today, Lille is the 4th largest French metropolitan area, an artistic and historic city, but also an important centre of economy, higher education and R&D.
Lille is easily accessible by train, car or plane, at two hours or less from Brussels, London and Paris and their international airports. More than 2 000 hotel rooms are available within walking distance from the Congress Centre.
The Scientific and Organising Committees cordially invite you to this event and look forward to meeting old friends, introducing newcomers to the area of animal cell technology and experiencing lively interactions and discussions on the newest hot topics of the field.
The 2013 ESACT Meeting in Lille will be focused on "Better Cells for Better Health" highlighting both the importance of basic aspects and high-performing bioprocesses, as well as recent advances in stem cells, recombinant proteins and viral vectors, biomaterials for regenerative medicine and nanoparticles.
