    • "Human Cardiomyocytes in Preclinical Drug Development at Merck"
  • Vitalina Gryshkova, PhD (Sr Scientist Investigative Toxicology) – UCB BioPharma
    • "Rethinking translational predictivity using hiPSC-derived models: a retrospective analysis for cardiac liabilities"
  • Damiano Lombardi, PhD (Research Scientist) – Inria
    • "Modelling and learning of MEA signals for safety pharmacology"
  • Veronique Ballet, PhD (Head of Cardiac Electrophysiology Lab) – Sanofi
    • TBD
  • Maaike Bras (Assay Developer) – Pivot Park Screening Centre
    • "Compound toxicity profiling using cardiomyocytes; assay automation at PPSC"
  • Prof. Steffen Hering – University of Vienna
    • TBD
  • Anne Zwartsen (Principle Investigator) – IRAS, Utrecht University
