Cell line engineering and genome editing are useful techniques for modern drug discovery. Gene-editing immunotherapies have been approved by the FDA for indications such as late stage acute lymphoblastic leukemia, positively signalling to the industry that there is a bright future in these kinds of therapies.
In collaboration with Oncology Central and Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, learn more about overcoming challenges in genome editing and enhancing your cell line engineering capabilities with this free webinar.
Watch now to discover:
- Newest strategies for clone screening and genotyping
- Improved workflow for cell line characterization
- Methods to overcome poor transfection efficiency
- Strategies for recalcitrant cell lines
Our presenter for this session is Mark Gerber, Principal R&D Scientist, Supervisor, Cell Design Studio, MilliporeSigma*.
Mark obtained his Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Saint Louis University School of Medicine, where he used RNAi in Drosophila models to elucidate developmental and biochemical roles for RNA polymerase II-associated transcription factors. Following graduate school, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Washington University in St. Louis, where he investigated signaling pathways involved in the development of human meningioma. Mark joined MilliporeSigma* in 2006, and he has worked in the areas of biotherapeutic production, stem cell applications, and gene regulation. He currently supervises the Cell Design Studio team, which performs custom cell line engineering for research and pharma markets using ZFN and CRISPR technologies.
* The life science business of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany operates as MilliporeSigma in the U.S. and Canada.
