CRISPR 2018

8 15 2455

LabRoots invites you to the First Annual CRISPR Virtual Event! With continued adoption and integration in research labs, CRISPR gene editing has gained importance both as a research tool in drug discovery, screening, and therapeutic development. This inaugural event will bring together thought leaders from academia, trained researcher from clinical laboratories, and industry experts from pharmaceutical to biotech.

This exciting new field is faced with new challenges and limitations. Experts will share case studies and experiences regarding best practices to guide RNA design, effects associated with CRISPR/Cas and address appropriate alternatives that are currently being developed.

The 2018 event will cover a range of topics, such as:

  • In Vivo Genome Editing with CRISPR
  • Engineering T Cell Circuitry
  • Harnessing CRISPR-Cas9 to Enhance Genome Editing
  • Measurements and Standards
  • CRISPR-Based Gene Editing for Drug Discovery & Targeted Therapies 
  • Next-gen editing tools 

This complimentary conference offers a fantastic opportunity to benefit from interacting with a global community of like-minded colleagues from the comfort of home. Topics of discussion include the distinctions and abilities of CRISPR-based editing, next-gen editing tools, precision in gene editing and using CRISPR for drug discovery. As our first-ever annual event on CRISPR, we aim to further the conversation of cannabis sciences and analytical research.
 
Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. You can take part in exactly those parts which you are interested in and be back at your desk or bench in an instant. Virtual events remove time and place restrictions and ensure that everyone who wants to participate can do so. This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global clinical community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.

Call for Posters — Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster and video summary, and discuss results with interested colleagues through email. Plan now to have your poster included in the 2018 CRISPR Virtual Event. Submission is free. Submit your abstract here.

POSTER SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster and video summary, and discuss results with interested colleagues through email. Posters should be submitted as a PowerPoint file. Presentations should incorporate illustrative materials such as tables, graphs, photographs, and large-print text. This content is not peer-reviewed. Submission is free.

SUBMIT YOUR ABSTRACT

Enter the following information to this Submission Form:

  • Poster Title
  • Your Name
  • Your Institution
  • Your Email
  • Abstract describing the poster

All submitted abstracts will be reviewed and decisions regarding acceptance will be made as abstracts are received. You will be notified within one week of receipt about acceptance. Further details and registration materials will be provided at that time. You do not have to be present in order to have a poster displayed. Only those abstracts approved by LabRoots may display posters at this event.

If accepted, you will also have the opportunity to record a 3-5 minute summary video for each poster. LabRoots will work with each individual to create these videos. Video links and email contact information will be included on each poster displayed.

Speakers

  • Bruce Conklin, MD
    Senior Investigator, Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease, Professor Department of Medicine, Division of Genomic Medicine, University of California, San Francisco
  • Devang Mehta, PhD
    Post Doctoral Fellow, University of Alberta
    Biography
      Devang Mehta is a synthetic biologist, plant scientist & science-writer who's also interested in shaping policy. He is a systems & synthetic biologist by training and recently completed his PhD in Plant Biotechnology at ETH Zurich. He is interested in studying how complex biological systems work and interact and wants to try and apply this knowledge to solve global problems using new biotechnology. Currently, he is trying to unravel the G-value paradox in plants, and trying to discover the mechanisms by which plants (and other eukaryotes) produce complexity while having a limited set of genes. He wants to use this knowledge to "fine-tune" plant metabolism. For his PhD, he worked on the tropical plant cassava, which feeds about a billion people worldwide. He analysed different genetic engineering approaches to tackle virus disease in cassava, particularly in the context of complex virus populations. He has also invented a new DNA sequencing method which enables in-depth, accurate analysis of plant virus genomes.
    • Dipali Sashital, PhD
      Assistant Professor, Department of Biochemistry, Biophysics and Molecular Biology, Iowa State University
    • Xiaobo Zhou, PhD
      Assistant Professor of Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard
      Biography
        Dr. Zhou has been leading the Functional Genomics research team at the Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School since 2009. Her group focuses on deciphering function of human genome, mainly genetic regions identified by genome-wide association studies (GWAS) or eQTL analysis in respiratory diseases. Through interpreting biological meanings of GWAS findings, her lab aims to identify novel drug targets in complex pulmonary diseases. To interpret biological meaning of genetic variants/regions associated with complex diseases, Dr. Zhou's group has established a pipeline to dissect local chromatin structure surrounding GWAS and eQTL SNPs, including ChIP, FAIRE (Formaldehyde-Assisted Isolation of Regulatory Elements), 3C (chromatin conformation capture) and 4C(chromatin conformation capture sequencing). We also recently applied a high-throughput screening to identify functional variants within GWAS loci by massively paralleled reporter assay (MPRA). The state-of-the-art genome editing method, mainly CRISPR/Cas-9 has also been routinely applied to identify functional regulatory variants in a semi-high-throughput way and to asses function of novel GWAS genes. Additionally, to pursue further mechanistic studies on GWAS candidate genes, her group characterized protein interactome in vitro and generated knockout and transgenic mouse lines in disease relevant murine models. In collaboration with multiple cross-functional groups, he group has identified functional variants in the HHIP and FAM13A two COPD GWAS loci and also identified novel druggable pathways associated with genetic predispositions in COPD. Additionally, Functional Genomics Laboratory led by her has also developed customized experimental validations on networks built upon various human -omics datasets, including genomics, proteomics and genetics data.
      • Lihua Zhu, PhD
        Professor and Director of Bioinformatics Core, University of Massachusetts Medical School
        Biography
          Lihua Julie Zhu obtained her Ph.D. in Nutritional Sciences from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1999, and her M.S. in Computer Science from DePaul University in Chicago in 2001. She joined the Bioinformatics Core of the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center (RHLCCC) of Northwestern University in 2001, where she was the Director of Bioinformatics Consulting Core from 2003 to 2005 and the Director of Clinical Informatics Group from 2005 to 2007. She joined the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) as the head of Bioinformatics core of Program in Gene Function and Expression (PGFE) in 2007. Dr. Zhu is currently a professor and the head of Bioinformatics Core in the Department of Molecular, Cell and Cancer Biology (MCCB) of UMMS.
