Cell-based Assays to Functionally Characterize Immunotherapy and the Immune Response to Viral Infection

Speaker
  • Staff Scientist, Thermo Fisher Scientific
    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

    DATE: November 5, 2020

    TIME: 9:00am PST, 12:00pm EST

     

    With accelerating development and approval of cell therapies, biologic drugs, and antiviral treatments comes a need for more robust and reliable cell-based assays and validated analysis systems. In this seminar a variety of techniques for immune cell isolation, expansion, and characterization will be demonstrated in cell-based immunotherapy and virology models using powerful cytometric instrumentation. Special focus will be given to immune effector function assays to characterize the potency and specificity of CAR-T and natural killer cells. Additionally, scalable screening methods based on recent innovations in high-throughput flow cytometry, partnered with regulatory-compliant acquisition and analysis software, will provide valuable additions to your portfolio of assays for immunotherapy and virology research.

     

    Learning Objectives:

    • Techniques for immune cell isolation, expansion, and characterization

    • Immune effector function assays to characterize the potency and specificity of CAR-T and natural killer cells

    • Salable screening methods for cell-based immunotherapy models

    • Viral entry, replication, and the host immune response

     

     

    Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
