Advances in Cell & Tissue Culture
Following the success of the 10th annual Advances in Cell and Tissue Culture conference in Cardiff earlier this year, Kirkstall Ltd will host an additional conference, ACTC 2018 Cambridge, at the University of Cambridge.
ACTC 2018 Cambridge will take place over two days on Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th December 2018 in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology.
The conference offers a great networking opportunity, bringing together industry and academic researchers working in all areas of in vitro cell culture to exchange knowledge, promote their activities and set up new collaborative projects.
The programme for ACTC 2018 Cambridge covers a wide range of interesting, relevant topics with a great line-up of keynote speakers anticipated.
Session topics include: Advanced In Vitro Liver Models, Developments in In Vitro Cancer Research, More Human Relevant ALI Models, Exploring New Trends in Stem Cell Research and Building Better Blood Brain Barrier Models.

What’s great about ACTC conferences?
"It draws people from slightly different areas around tissue engineering. Those people, together in one conference, can generate new ideas."
Professor Jamie Davies, Experimental Anatomy, University of Edinburgh
About ACTC 2018 Cambridge
The Advances in Cell and Tissue Culture international conference aims to create an interdisciplinary forum in which over 150 industry and academic researchers, working in cell culture can exchange knowledge, promote their activities and set up new collaborative projects.
ACTC has been running for 10 years with growing success. 2018 marks the 10th year of this annual event, and is set to be the best yet, with a great line-up of speakers anticipated across a diverse range of topics.
ACTC Cambridge encourages all levels of researchers, from PhD student to Professor, from both leading industry organisations and academia to get involved and share their research findings with their fellow scientists. It is a great opportunity for networking.
The programme covers a wide range of interesting, relevant topics across a broad range of disciplines. This is a unique opportunity to bring together different groups of people to come up with new, innovative ideas and collaborations.
ACTC Cambridge is great value! We keep registration fees to a minimum to encourage participation from academic researchers. This helps to bring together scientists from a number of disciplines, fosters new collaborations, and allows junior scientists to hear about the latest cutting-edge techniques and to present their own data. Registration includes attendance to all scientific sessions alongside lunch and refreshments.
Registration for ACTC 2018 Cambridge is now open and delegate spaces are limited. Don’t wait around to sign up and secure your place and take advantage of the 20% discount available to all University of Cambridge staff.

It was an ideal opportunity for my student, a junior researcher, to present some of her work in a supportive and sociable environment that is perhaps not quite as daunting as a large conference. Also, for me as a primary investigator to talk to other people working in the field. It is a very useful meeting to come to!
The ACTC conference is an excellent place to meet colleagues and hear inspiring presentations in a relaxed informal atmosphere. The science is front and center, and there is always something fresh and new to learn/discuss. There is a healthy mix of experiences scientists from academia and industry together with many young aspiring scientists!
ACTC is a small but well-attended conference providing opportunity for academic, industrial and commercial scientists to share ideas, technological advances and future visions in the field of bioreactors, human on a chip and 3Rs. This conference was a great platform to share current research and develop collaborations to drive forward the innovative use of advanced cell culture techniques and models. Overall, a well organised, interesting and relevant conference.
I liked the warmth and friendly atmosphere that was generated by the organisers (the organising team were super patient and supremely organised in going about the job of building and delivering the conference). The diversity of speakers and topics made a good platform for the sharing and cross-fertilisation of ideas.
