    Biography
      Miriam Ferrer, Ph. D., completed her Biology degree at the University of Barcelona (Spain) and a Ph.D. from the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam (The Netherlands). During her PhD she worked on how to use the cisplatin sensitivity of Fanconi Anaemia cells as a potential tool for cancer therapy. She further expanded her experience in the DNA repair field working on the role of BRCA1 as E3-ubiquitin ligase during her postdoc at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge (UK).

    Abstract:

    Quantification of cellular growth before and after an experiment is an essential technique for cell-based studies. Listen in as our scientific expert, Miriam Ferrer, Ph.D., reviews methods to investigate cell viability and cytotoxicity, and discusses how to optimize your cell-based experiments, including how to choose the most appropriate assay for your experiment.
