    Biography
      Samantha leads NIST's Genome Editing Program including the NIST Genome Editing Consortium, which supports measurements, standards and assay qualification for confidence in genome editing applications with an emphasis on gene and cell therapy. She has 13 years of experience working on projects supporting better measurements and assays for early detection of cancer biomarkers in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute's Early Detection Research Network. Her research is focused on measurement assurance and technology development for genome editing, bioassay and biomarker validation, with applications in engineering biology, precision/regenerative medicine, and cancer biology.

      Samantha also represents the U.S. as a technical expert to the International Standards Organizations Technical Committee on Biotechnology (ISO TC 276). She is currently a U.S. liaison representing the interests and expertise of the U.S. on standards relating to nucleic acids measurements.

    Abstract:

    The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), is the measurement institute of the U.S., supplying unbiased expertise in measurements and standards to support growth in all sectors of economy and commerce including healthcare and the bio-economy.  Confidence and comparability of measurements are critical to underpinning any scientific effort including the genome editing field.  Through a newly launched NIST-led Genome Editing Consortium, NIST is working with experts in the genome editing field to identify and develop solutions for pre-competitive needs for establishing confidence in assessing the results of genome editing process.  Leading pre-competitive needs the consortium will address are: shared process control samples, reference data and standard data formats, minimum information norms, and standard terminology. This talk will give an introduction measurement assurance and overview of the newly launched NIST-led Genome Editing Consortium.

    Learning Objectives: 

    1. Gain a better understanding of how community norms and standards can help give confidence in data and accelerate the genome editing field 
    2. Gain knowledge of the NIST Genome Editing Consortium and the ongoing efforts to develop genome editing community standards and norms
