We have extended the abstract deadline for the 2nd International Antibody Validation Event until the end of June so it isn’t too late for you to get involved in what promises to be one of the most informative antibody events of the year.

This is a unique meeting, held from 15 – 16 September 2016, which aims to bring together scientists from academia, the pharmaceutical / biotech sector and antibody suppliers in order to discuss best practices in research antibody validation and help improve antibody validation for the life science community.

headline-indexThe meeting is being organised by the University of Bath as part of it’s 50th anniversary celebrations, and is supported by AstraZeneca and CiteAb.

This event would not be taking place if it weren’t for our four generous sponsors – so thank you to Abcam, Proteintech, R&D Systems (Biotechne) and Thermo Fisher Scientific.

If you would like to be considered for a talk or a poster presentation please submit an abstract here. The end of June is the final deadline as the organising team will then select abstracts for talks.

If you would like to attend but don’t want to be considered for a talk or a poster presentation there are still a few spaces left for registration.
