Ist BELSACT Scientific Meeting (Virtual)
24th of November 2020
Innovative tools for cell culture and process understanding, control and improvement
The Ist BELSACT Scientific Meeting will bring together participants from top academic and industrial groups from Belgium and its neighboring countries. This meeting will discuss major innovative tools from the last decades that support cell culture and processes understanding, control and improvement. Leading scientists in these fields will provide cutting edge overview of these advances for improving animal cell cultures.
