Getting started in 3D: Ask an Expert

Sponsored by: Thermo Fisher Scientific
  • R&D Scientist at Thermo Fisher Scientific, Cell Biology ADME/Tox group
      Mark received his Ph.D. from Memorial University (Canada). Under the guidance of Ken R. Kao, in the Terry Fox Cancer Research Laboratory, he investigated mechanisms by which growth factor signaling controls stem cell differentiation in embryonic development. As a Cancer Research Training Award (CRTA) post-doctoral fellow in the laboratory of Terry P. Yamaguchi at the National Cancer Institute, Dr. Kennedy studied the gene regulatory network controlled by Wnt signaling in models of mammalian embryogenesis. He has published many peer-reviewed research articles in leading journals such as PNAS and Development. At Thermo Fisher Scientific, Dr. Kennedy is part of a team that focuses on the development of new in vitro 3D cell culture models. His ongoing work focusses on the utilization of human embryonic stem cells, iPSCs and primary cells, and their application in spheroids, organoids and co-culture systems.
    • Sr. Staff Scientist, Cell Biology 3D Models, Thermo Fisher Scientific
        Richard Josephson earned his Ph.D. in Cell and Molecular Biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He conducted post-doctoral research on gene regulation by stem cells of the central nervous system under Ron McKay in the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke at NIH. He was subsequently a research scientist in the Stem Cell Center at the American Type Culture Collection, where he was lead author of several papers and reviews on authentication and standards for human embryonic stem cells and stem cell therapies. Later, as a Senior Scientist with MTI-GlobalStem, he developed products and methods for neurobiology including large-scale production and long-term culture of rodent primary neurons and human iPSC-derived neurons. At Thermo Fisher Scientific, Dr. Josephson is involved in the development and analysis of new 3-D cell culture models including midbrain organoids to study Parkinson Disease and other neurological disorders.

      As we look to advancements in the study of cell models, the rise of organoid, spheroid and 3d model research is becoming increasingly common, but questions linger on recommended products, applications and protocols. Come meet with the 3D experts at Thermo Fisher Scientific and bring all your questions for our round table discussion. Be sure to watch out preceding webinars on:
        • Topics
          • What question are you looking to answer
          • Do you even need 3d? 2d vs 3d (Pro vs cons)
          • How do you choose the right system?
            • Selecting the right methods
            • Are you getting the right cell types at the end?
