This unique online meeting focuses on cell biology as the fundamental basis of biology and follows emerging interdisciplinary topics by leading experts
YORBA LINDA, Calif., September 15, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Labroots, the leading scientific social networking website offering leading interactive virtual events and webinars, today announced its 6th annual cell biology event scheduled to take place on September 21, 2022. The conference promises to offer an impactful program and the exchange of scientific information sharing new advances in the field of cell biology.
This free event will provide an educational forum for biologists, researchers, top scientists and leading professionals from universities and institutions interested in learning fundamental aspects of biology, recent discoveries in biological research and new tools for research. cellular while showcasing a global community for some of the brightest minds in the field. The program explores sessions on basic cell biology, translational cell biology, quantitative cell biology, and organ-on-chip technologies.
At the start of the day, participants will hear about James J. HickmanPhD, Co-Founder and Chief Scientist, at Hesperos, Inc., during a keynote presentation titled “Multi-organ human systems-on-a-chip for preclinical efficacy and toxicity evaluations, followed by a live Q&A session.
“Microphysiological Systems (MPS) are a breakthrough technology that gives researchers visibility and insight into disease states that were simply not possible before,” said James J. HickmanCo-Founder and Chief Scientist, Hesperos, Inc. “This has significant implications both ethically and economically, as we are now able to investigate rare diseases, as there are 7,000 rare diseases with only 400 active research programs Going forward, we expect that these human-based technologies will continue to rapidly gain traction with industry and regulatory agencies as they continue to better predict human outcomes and support bringing new treatments to market at a fraction of standard development costs. December 2020 when the FDA authorized a Phase II clinical trial for the treatment of rare diseases using efficacy data produced by a Hesperos system (#NCT04658472). I am delighted to share this information with the public during my presentation via the unique Labroots platform.”
The second main presentation also with live questions and answers is presented by Juan S. Bonifacino, Associate Scientific Director of the Division of Neurosciences and Cellular and Structural Biology at the (NCSBD) Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, (NICHD) National Institutes of Health (NIH) to explore the pathogenetic mechanisms of neurodevelopmental disorders caused by dysfunction of intracellular transport. NIH Emeritus Researcher Dr Bonifacino said: “Due to their polarized organization and long processes such as axons and dendrites, neurons are particularly vulnerable to defects in the molecular machinery that provides intracellular transport of proteins and of organelles. Therefore, mutations in the components of this machinery are the cause of many neurodevelopmental disorders. I will discuss this link between intracellular transport and disease, using as an example inherited spastic paraplegias caused by mutations in the complex AP-4. During my keynote address, I will illustrate how basic research in process biology contributes to the elucidation of disease mechanisms.”
This year’s event aims to unveil new discoveries through thought-provoking talks on a variety of topics you won’t want to miss! Key discussions include a QIAGEN-sponsored presentation exploring single-cell analysis of tumor microenvironment in high-grade serous ovarian carcinoma, and a presentation sponsored by LUMINEX, a DiaSorin company sharing xMAP bead-based multiplexing technology from Luminex and how it has been used in life science research for 27 years. Additionally, insightful topics ranging from predicting clinical gastrointestinal safety outcomes using an in vitro human intestinal epithelial model, optogenetic tools to manipulate protein localization and signaling at contact sites with organelles, and the on-chip glomerulus as a platform for disease modeling, drug screening, biomarker discovery and mechanistic studies will be shared, and much more!
Produced on Labroots’ robust interactive platform enabling seamless connection across desktop and mobile devices, the online event offers a comprehensive educational experience. The virtual environment consists of a lobby equipped with leaderboard and gamification, an auditorium with live video webcasts offering live discussions to attendees during scheduled presentations, a poster room with a poster contest and live chat conversations, a showroom to interact with sponsors and see their latest products and technologies, and a networking lounge to connect and collaborate with colleagues. By attending this event, you can earn 1 continuing education credit per presentation watched for a maximum of 30 credits.
