13 - 17 June 2022


It is our sincere pleasure to invite you to participate in the 9th Monolith Summer Symposium (MSS2022) from June 13th through the 17th.

MSS2022 will mark some changes in the series. The evolution of monolith technology will continue to be an important element but increased emphasis will be placed on applications; from development to clinical trials to manufacturing. Oral presentations will be coordinated with wet-lab tutorial sessions, highlighting the special abilities of monoliths as analytical and preparative tools in the challenging field of gene therapy.
