NanoSurface Biomedical to Present at Biotech Showcase 2020

January 2, 2020 GMT

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 2, 2020--

NanoSurface Biomedical, a leading provider of biomimetic cell-based assay products and services, announced today that its Chief Science Officer, Dr. Nicholas Geisse, will present at Biotech Showcase 2020 held at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square in San Francisco. The presentation is scheduled for the second day of the event on Tuesday, January 14th. More details below:

Event: Biotech Showcase 2020

Date: Tuesday, January 14, 2020

Time: 4:45 PM PT

Location: Hilton San Francisco Union Square, San Francisco

Track: Franciscan B (Ballroom Level)

Dr. Geisse will present NanoSurface Biomedical’s mission to engineer predictive stem cell-derived tissues to accelerate the development of new medicines. NanoSurface Plates™ possess biomimetic submicronic topography features that reliably emulate the alignment of the extracellular matrix, resulting in more physiologically relevant cells and tissues.

NanoSurface Platform Technology™ is particularly effective in increasing the predictivity and maturity of human stem cell-derived heart tissues. By incorporating more predictive human heart tissue models earlier in the preclinical drug development process, drug developers are able to more accurately eliminate preliminary therapeutics that are likely to fail in the more costly clinical trials, saving valuable time and resources, and enhance their ability to discover more safe and effective therapies.

“At NanoSurface, we strive to make cells in the dish resemble cells in the body,” said Dr. Geisse. “NanoSurface Platform Technology™ grants researchers access to human-relevant data earlier in the drug development paradigm, improving confidence that new therapeutics will translate to the clinic.”
