MaxWell User Meeting 2022

2nd In-Vitro 2D & 3D Neuronal Networks Summit
MaxWell User Meeting 2022

April 6-8, Hybrid event


Our 2nd In-Vitro 2D & 3D Neuronal Networks Summit, gave our audience from all over the world, the option to connect with us in-person or online. The event gathered 23 invited speakers and more than 600 attendees from around the world.

The event highlighted the latest research works and results on topics related to iPSC-derived neurons, brain organoids, and other scientific applications of high-density microelectrode arrays (HD-MEAs).
