Speaker
  • Senior Research Scientist, Promega Corporation, Adjunct Professor, UW-Madison, Dept. of Medicine
    Biography

      Dr. Jeff Bacher is a Senior Scientist at Promega and has been involved in research and development of microsatellite markers and tests for MSI for over 20 years. He was the lead scientist responsible for development of Promega’s first and second generation MSI kits, and more recently has been investigating the utility of using expanded marker panels and new technologies to further improve performance of MSI testing for all types of cancers and liquid biopsies.


    Abstract

    Dr. Bacher will be discussing the history and evolution of MSI, the differences between popular testing methods, and what the future holds for this powerful biomarker. 

    Learning Objectives: 

    •    Explain what a microsatellite is, how errors in microsatellites are repaired and indicate how MSI testing is done
    •    Compare and contrast the characteristics of laboratory assays used to test for microsatellite instability in solid tumors
