Title: ‘Leveraging Stem Cells Workflows to build Better Disease Models: Introduction to StemScale PSC suspension cultures and applications’
Presenter: Omar Farah, Ph.D., Scientist III, Field Applications, Stem Cells and Neurobiology
Abstract: At Thermo Fisher Scientific, our goal is to bring innovative new products and services that enable the development of more physiological relevant disease models to help accelerate the drug discovery process. In this seminar, we will share an overview of our pluripotent stem cell-based workflow offerings and capabilities used to develop more predictive disease models. Specific case studies will be provided of how stem cell researchers are leveraging various products and services to build relevant disease models to achieve their research goals. We are also excited to unveil StemScale PSC suspension medium for PSC suspension culture and its applications.
Thursday, July 23, 1-2 pm
Title: ‘Essential Tools for Fluorescence Microscopy and High Content’ Screening
Presenter: Mike Janes, Senior Staff Scientist, Molecular Probes™ Education
Abstract: High content screening offers robust, multi-parametric and scalable analysis of large numbers of cells in heterogenous populations with the benefit of spatial and temporal resolution afforded by fluorescence microscopy. This seminar will provide an overview of practical considerations for fluorescence labeling and detection, as well as newly developed probes and assays for various aspects of cell structure, health, and function using both traditional fluorescence microscopy and high content imaging and analysis. Some emphasis will be given to visualization of cell stress and death mechanisms, proliferation, and internalization, including tools for immuno-oncology applications in both 2D and 3D models.
