IBCA 2016

cellasys at the congress “Impedance-Based Cellular Assays 2016”


Dear all,

nearly three years have passed since the last IBCA meeting in Budapest in August 2013 hosted by Laszlo Kohidai. It was the second meeting of this kind that brought together the growing number of researchers in the field of impedance-based cellular assays (IBCA) to share ideas or protocols and to discuss future directions of this exciting and most versatile, label-free approach of monitoring cell-based assays.

This summer, from August 9th to 12th, IBCA returns to Regensburg. As the host of IBCA2016 I would like to invite you and your colleagues who have an interest in non-invasive cell monitoring to join us and to be part of this year’s meeting. Please save the date and bookmark our website (www.ibca2016.net) for updates on the program and further announcements. Online registration will open on March 15th from the meeting webside. A list of invited speakers and details about the session titles will follow soon. The meeting will cover impedance-based cellular assays from these fields:

Cell Differentiation
Cell Migration
In Vitro Toxicology including Nanotoxicology
Signal Transduction (in particular related to GPCR)
Cells on Filter Supports
Cell Manipulation by Invasive Electric Fields (e.g. in situ electroporation)
3D Models
New and Complementing Techniques

The beautiful city of Regensburg also known as ‘the most Italian city north of the Alps’ will hopefully set the stage for another round of inspiring presentations and fruitful discussions about this most versatile way of whole-cell biosensing. Please check out the slide show about the city of Regensburg provided by the webside to see that I am not promising too much.

I look forward to welcome you in Regensburg for IBCA 2016.

Kind regards from Regensburg

Joachim Wegener

Chair of IBCA2016
