Webinar: Shifting Cell-Line Development into High Gear

GEN invites you to a complimentary webinar entitled: Shifting Cell-Line Development into High Gear

Date: Wednesday, December 15, 2009 at 1:00 pm EST.

Register, for free at:
This GEN webinar will not only show you how to improve the cell-line development process but also provide you with what you need to know about the revolutionary technologies and approaches that are available to shift your high throughput screening activities for drug discovery into high gear.
It will include insightful presentations and a live Q&A session, where you can pose your question(s) to our expert panelists.
Panelists include:
*Richard Visconti, Senior Research Biologist, In Vitro Sciences Cell Production Group, Merck & Co.
*Darren Cawkill, Ph.D., Senior Principal Scientist, Pfizer Global Research and Development
*Fredrik Kamme, Ph.D., Senior Scientist, Applications Development, Cyntellect
What will be covered:
*Developing cell lines for use in assays that answer biology-based questions rather than just finding hits in high-throughput screening operations
*Moving away from receptor-centered thinking toward understanding the intricacies of biological pathways
*Obtaining a sufficient amount of both cells and quality differentiation
*Generating cell lines for cell-based early toxicity studies
*Marrying different technologies to accelerate successful cell-line development
*Applying automation techniques to solve problems with difficult targets and assays
Who should attend:
*Scientists engaged in early drug discovery and prescreening
*Investigators performing target identification and/or target validation studies
*Researchers who are developing or working with cell-based assays
Webinar Date: Wednesday, December 15, 2009. Time: 1:00 pm EST
