2015 marks the 30th year that the European Collection of Authenticated Cell Cultures (ECACC) has played a pivotal role in supporting worldwide Life Science research. We will delve into how our understanding has developed since ECACC acquired its first cell line deposits.

In celebration of this milestone, we invite you to join the first of a three part webinar series. The first webinar will discuss the evolving role of cell lines and their usefulness as models of physiological function and disease.

The webinar will review the depth, breadth and best use of currently available cell lines. The role played by cell lines in ensuring that the output of future research continues to be valid and credible will also be evaluated. The complete webinar series will focus on presenting a broad picture of the role of cell lines as models in scientific research, the various strategies and approaches available.

Topics covered include:

  • Techniques for growth of cell lines
  • Relevance and importance of Culture Collections
  • The role of cell lines in future research
