Physiochemical and Biophysical Characterization of ADC DVD
May 5, 2015 |
Antibody drug conjugates are complex, heterogeneous products that require a wide array of characterization tools to support manufacturing, storage and administration. It is critical to have meaningful analytical and biophysical tools early in development to rationally design the manufacturing process and to demonstrate control over the process and product. An effective analytical toolkit will enable the identification and elimination of liabilities, resulting in significant time and cost savings.

Determining Genome Variation and Clinical Utility DVD
April 21, 2015 |
This all-BioTeam workshop will focus on covering the entire array of best practices for converged infrastructure through hardware selection, configuration, software, and data management for life sciences research and clinical environments. BioTeam defines converged infrastructure as the unification of disparate hardware, software, and support personnel into a blended and tuned end-to-end solution that makes it easier for scientists and clinicians to accomplish their data interpretation goals. The agenda of the workshop will focus on presenting and discussing reference designs for networking, storage, HPC, cloud (public and private), and hybrid infrastructures, as well as scientific software installation, maintenance, and development best practices. The course is designed to inform IT organizations and tech-savvy scientists about the methodologies and best practices behind making the datacenter an extension of the laboratory in a manner that enables scientific discovery, rather than forcing science to adapt to IT infrastructure. This intensive 3 ½ hour course will leave you with many ideas for how to better support the scientists and clinicians within your organization.

Understanding EMT: Mechanisms and Metastasis to MET
February 20, 2012 |
Epethelial Mesenchymal Transition (EMT) plays a critical role in cancer cells, but understanding of its mechanisms is incomplete. EMT causes cells to develop increased motility, invasiveness, and greater resistance to apoptosis. These changes make the cells more like stem cells, allowing them to self renew. This course provides a framework of the underlying molecular mechanisms while addressing stem cells, and cancer progression, cMET and their activity as anti-metastasis agents, and the Mesenchymal-Epethelial Transition (MET) as an essential process for tumor re-initiation, colonization, and metastasis.
