    Biography
      Dr. Richard M. Eglen is Vice President and General Manager of Corning Life Sciences. Dr. Eglen has over 40 years' experience in the Life Sciences industry. Prior to joining Corning in 2011, he was president of Bio-discovery at PerkinElmer and held other executive management positions in the pharmaceutical, diagnostic, and biotech industries. Dr. Eglen has extensive experience in the use of cellular biology to study key drug targets, including GPCRs, kinases, and ion channels. He has also wide experience in assay and instrument technology development for high-throughput screening, imaging, and biomarker detection. He has authored over 350 publications, book chapters, and patents, and serves on numerous industry, academic advisory, and journal editorial boards.

    Abstract:

    Cellular research is optimal when using physiologically-relevant cell phenotypes and genotypes of human origin. This assertion has accelerated the adoption of primary cells, stem cells, and increasingly, patient-specific cells in drug discovery. Over the last five years, technological improvements in three-dimensional (3D) cell culture technology, to better mimic in vivo physiology, have also accelerated, not only in the areas of cancer and neurological research, but also in the assessment of clinical candidates for metabolic and toxicological liabilities. In this presentation, existing, and future, developments in 3D cell culture technology, (including the use of phenotypically-relevant human iPS cells) on fundamental research and drug discovery will be addressed. 

    Learning Objectives: 

    1. Understanding current status of 3D technologies  
    2. Understanding applications to disease modeling and drug discovery
