    Biography
      As a staff scientist at Thermo Fisher Scientific Chris leads a cross-functional team developing fluorescent probes, labeling technologies, and cell-based assays focused on immunotherapy research. Over the last twelve years he has developed more than seventy novel reagents for characterizing disease on a cellular level in areas such as innate and adaptive immunity, cell growth and proliferation, apoptosis and cytotoxicity, and endocytosis. Chris travels frequently to support collaborative research projects and has given over 300 technical seminars and trainings in over thirty countries as part of a scientific education program.

    Abstract:

    TIME:    9:00am PDT, 12:00pm EDT
     
    As we develop new methods to create more biologically relevant models for research in understanding disease etiology and innovating new treatment options, one of the most requested areas for educational materials is 3D cell models such as organoid and spheroid systems.
     
    Thermo Fisher Scientific is proud to present our webinar series on 3D culture & analysis, and more importantly, how you can get started, how to monitor and analyze 3D models and what to do with these once you have successfully cultured your organoid or spheroid model of interest.
     
    In this series we will specifically cover the following areas and after taking part in the presentations, hopefully you will be better equipped to answer the basic questions and feel enabled to get started using 3D culture systems.
     
      • Topics
        • What question are you looking to answer
        • Do you even need 3d? 2d vs 3d (Pro vs cons)
        • How do you choose the right system?
          • Selecting the right methods
          • Are you getting the right cell types at the end?
