    Biography
      I attended the University of Connecticut where I received my Bachelors Degree in Physiology/Neurobiology in 1999. I then attended graduate school at Southern Connecticut State University where I earned my Master's Degree in Biology. I have worked at Yale School of Medicine, Perkin Elmer, Thermo Electron, Pfizer and am currently employed at Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals. The majority of my expertise is in immunoassay development and validation. I also have extensive experience in lab automation and integration. I served in the US Army as a Medic for 12 years attaining the rank of Staff Sergeant and completing tours of duty in Bosnia in 2001 and Iraq in 2005. My current duties are in overseeing Boehringer's High Throughput Antibody Discovery team, whose principal duties are primary screening, cloning and transient expression of therapeutic antibody candidates.

    Bringing automation on any scale into your lab can be an intimidating prospect, especially for new users. There can be significant benefits to automating a method or process, but there are also many factors to consider and even more potential pitfalls. It is a common misconception that automation or integrated platforms have to be big, expensive and complex. There is also a common misconception that less complex assay formats don’t benefit from automation. Implementing automation can be as complex as large, walk-away high-throughput screening platforms or as simple as a plate reader and stacker, or any combination in between. Thoughtful planning and careful implementation are the two factors that determine the overall success of the process.
     
    This webinar will explore the benefits of automating less complex assay formats while also addressing some of the considerations that need to be examined, such as scope, scale and cost. We will focus on ELISA and “ELISA-like” assay formats and provide an example of an existing integration used for MSD-based antibody discovery.
     
     
    Learning objectives:
    • Understanding of the many variants of the classic ELISA assay as well as newer, “ELISA-like” assay formats and the benefits that they bring.
    • Understand key challenges to automating assay methods or entire processes.
