The 20th ESACT meeting took place in Dresden (2007) and highlighted the latest research in the field of Animal Cell Culture. It attracted a wide range of workers both from Academia and Industry and was supported by some exceptional invited speakers from around the world whose contributions complemented the emerging technologies and the changes being made at the industrial end of the ESACT spectrum. The proceedings here include the short papers from the meeting and provide a reference for the researcher entering, or continuing in the field of Animal Cell Technology.
Concentrating on the move towards the clinic environment, the meeting provided a very valuable and exciting forum for describing the latest developments. The conference included sessions on: Single-Cell Analysis and Engineering; Applied Integrative Physiology;
Speed and Intensification in Bioprocess Development; systems Biotechnology; Competing and Complementary approaches to Animal Cell Technology; and Solutions and Applications.
