    Biography
      Dr. Kuninger leads research, development and commercialization of media systems for pluripotent stem cell culture & differentiation, neurobiology, and (non-hepatic) primary cell biology at Thermo Fisher Scientific in the Cell Biology business based in Frederick MD. His teams support numerous portfolios and have launched over 25 new products spanning stem cell culture & cryopreservation, differentiation (endo-, ecto- and meso-dermal lineages) and neurobiology over the past 3 years. David is a seasoned scientist and manager, experienced in media formulation & optimization, assay design and implementation, and troubleshooting. Expertise in GLP/GMP compliance, tech transfer and scale up, as well as verification and validation processes. Prior to starting at Thermo Fisher Scientific (legacy Invitrogen) in 2007 as Staff Scientist, he joined Oregon Health Sciences University as a Postdoctoral Fellow investigating the actions of insulin-like growth factors in the lab of Dr. Peter Rotwein, subsequently joining the faculty in the Department of Biochemistry at OHSU as a Research Instructor. He completed is PhD in Biochemistry and Genetics University of Texas Medical Branch in the laboratory of Dr. John Papaconstatinou and has a B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Oregon.

    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.
     
    • February 20: Choosing the best system to answer your question - David Kuninger
      • 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?
     
    • March 20: Getting started in 3D  - Mark Kennedy
      • Part 1: Getting started in 3D: Setting up your lab and reviewing common pitfalls of 3D research
      • Part 2: Monitoring your 3D culture (what's good and bad): How to detect problems and what a successful growth looks like
