MaxWell Summit 2023

3rd In-Vitro 2D & 3D Neuronal Networks Summit

MxW Summit 2023

15 – 17 May 2023 | Zurich, Switzerland

Following the success of our two previous summits, we are delighted to announce that we will be hosting the 3rd In-Vitro 2D & 3D Neuronal Networks Summit from May 15 – 17 in Zurich, Switzerland! 

We are finalizing an inspiring two-and-a-half-day programme, highlighting the latest research works and results on topics related to iPSC-derived neurons, neural organoids, and scientific applications of microelectrode arrays (MEAs). The event is open to everyone interested in neuroscience, cell biology, drug discovery, disease modeling, and bio/neuroengineering!

There will be poster sessions during our summit where you can present your work. We will also select up to five abstracts to present a short talk as part of our programme! For the newcomers to MxW HD-MEA technology, we will host a live interactive workshop showcasing high-resolution functional imaging of neural 2D and 3D samples on MaxWell Biosystems’ HD-MEA systems. In parallel, we will host an exclusive networking event for our MxW HD-MEA users.

Find all the details about the summit and stay tuned. We are looking forward to seeing you in-person and to discussing your research at the summit!
