Are you actively working with animal cell lines?
Did you know that inaccurate labeling and mishandling of cell lines are significant contributors to the ongoing reproducibility crisis in scientific research?

The symposium aims to tackle the critical issue of cell line misidentification and promote best practices in cell line management.
Through presentations by renowned international experts, you'll gain insights into various initiatives, online resources, databases, and innovative techniques developed to ensure the proper handling of cell lines.
