Cell Biology 2018

Join us for the 2nd Annual Cell Biology Virtual Event, as we discuss recent discoveries in biological research, advancements in techniques, and tool developments in cell research. Cell biology studies cells – their physiological properties, structure, the organelles they contain, environmental interactions, life cycle, division and death, on a microscopic and molecular level.

Cell Biology 2018 Virtual Event will continue to create a valuable platform for inspiring global and interdisciplinary collaboration in a virtual environment. Participants will learn from experts on topics such as:
 

  • Translational Approaches
  • Imaging
  • Live Cell Dynamics
  • Cell Therapy
  • 3D Cell Cultures

​​​​
This field spans through most scientific disciplines, studying cell imaging, stem cells, cell physiology and structure, cell signaling, cell culture, and translational biology, and encompassing other scientific fields such as cancer biology, neuroscience, genetics, bioengineering and so much more. The free, two-day conference will bring together professors, post-docs, biologists and biomedical professionals from all over the world. Attend interactive sessions, first-class exhibitions and virtual poster presentations.

Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. You can participate in exactly those parts which you are interested in and be back at your desk or bench in an instant. Virtual events remove time and place restrictions and ensure that everyone who wants to participate can do so. This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global cell biology community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.

Call for Posters — Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster and video summary, and discuss results with interested colleagues through email. Plan now to have your poster included in the 2018 Cell Biology Virtual Event. Submission is free. Submit your abstract here

    • Kersti Alm, PhD
      Application Specialist at Phase Holographic Imaging
      Biography
        Dr. Alm has been an Application Specialist at Phase Holographic Imaging (PHI) for nine years now. Working with digital holography is a challenge and her background in cell biology is very useful. Learning tissue culture during her PhD studies in cell biology at Lund University, Sweden, as well as the continued training during her postdoc at Roswell Park, Buffalo, NY, provided important insights for the development of the technology. The years thereafter, when she was working as a researcher and a teacher at Lund University, have also contributed to her knowledge of both cell requirements and of cell biologist requirements. PHI has developed a cell analysis system based on digital holography, and she has been part of the development almost from the beginning.

In 2012 I accepted a position as senior laboratory technician in the department Pharmaceutics at NWU. This enabled me to pursue a M.Sc in Pharmaceutics (2013-2014). In 2014 I was invited to join the international Golden Key honour society for my academic achievements as part of the top 15% of students in my field at NWU. I completed my Ph.D in Pharmaceutics in 2017 under the guidance of Dr C. Gouws, Dr K. Wrzesinksi and Prof S.Hamman. My thesis focused on the establishment of three-dimensional cell culture models for drug bio-transformation and toxicity studies. I was awarded the South African National Research Foundation (NRF) Innovation doctoral scholarship and travel award in 2016 and 2017. With this award I was able to spend six months at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) in Odense, Denmark, learning the art of three-dimensional spheroid culturing. Since 2014 I have published five first author publications in international peer-reviewed journals. In 2014 I presented at the Young Scientist award of the 35th conference of the Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences of South Africa. I have also acted as reviewer for the journal Current Pharmacology Reports, and hold membership to the South African Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences. Currently I am employed in the faculty of Health Sciences at the NWU as a post-doctoral research fellow, focusing on the development of three-dimensional cell culture models and platforms for cancer research, bio-transformation and toxicity screening of pre-clinical lead compounds or traditional herbal medicine.
