2nd International CAM Conference

2nd International CAM conference

The Chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) model is a robust and cost effective alternative in vivo system. It has an enormous potential of applications, exemplarily it can serve as a bioreactor for culturing tumor cells, be a system for safety testing of novel therapeutic compounds or for studying damaging effects of biomaterials or for imaging purposes etc.

Motivated by the big success of the first online International CAM conference in February 2022 with more than 350 participants of 36 countries we will meet for the follow-up conference in Erlangen. Here we will have the unique possibility to exchange our knowledge, to find new collaboration partners and finally to reach a higher standardization and acceptance of the CAM model.

You can expect an exciting and highly informative conference targeting all different aspects of the CAM in vivo model.

We are looking for meeting you in Erlangen, a cosmopolitan city in the heart of Bavaria, Germany.
