3 Major Trends for Cardiac Drug Discovery in 2020
Without a doubt, we will remember 2020 as the year of the COVID-19 pandemic. For the biopharma and healthcare sectors, the focus was firmly on the rapid development of diagnostics, therapies and vaccines that could be produced at scale. But under the radar, other life science fields have been powering on – among them, the cardiac field.
How Can Data Platforms Unlock the Power of Single-Cell Analysis?
Single-cell technologies have positioned themselves at the forefront of biomedical research. But the value of these systems risks being impaired by bottlenecks in data analysis and handling. To find out more, we spoke to Marilyn Matz, CEO and co-founder of Paradigm4.
A Path to Better Plant-Based Foods
With demands for food rising as the population continues to expand, and the ever-present threat of climate change, scientists are looking for innovative ways to feed society without adding to the planet’s burdens. Plant-based foods are one area of great interest to meet this need.
Cell Replacement Therapy – A Promising Treatment for Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Here we share a Q&A with Brian Culley, CEO of Lineage Cell Therapeutics. In this interview, Brian discusses age-related macular degeneration and retinal pigment epithelium transplant therapy.
Exploring the Challenges and Opportunities of Harvesting CTCs
In a recent study, CTCs were harvested to investigate the causes of brain metastasis in non-small cell lung cancer patients. We spoke to Andrew Newland, CEO, ANGLE, to learn more about the study, the challenges of harvesting CTCs and how the Parsortix system overcomes some of these challenges.
Capturing the Transcriptome and the Epigenome Simultaneously in Single Cells
How do we take our understanding of the different stages of the omics cascade to the next level? We analyze them simultaneously. With the recent launch of its Chromium Single Cell Multiome ATAC + Gene Expression solution, 10x Genomics is making advances towards that goal. Technology Networks spoke with Ben Hindson to learn more.
Overcoming the Challenges of Manufacturing Therapeutic Mesenchymal Stem Cells
Technology Networks had the pleasure of speaking with Ross Macdonald, CEO of Cynata Therapeutics, to learn more about the challenges of manufacturing therapeutic MSCs and how the Cymerus technology overcomes these.
Exploring Genetic Variation and COVID-19 Clinical Variability
One of the biggest challenges that scientists and healthcare professionals are facing during the COVID-19 pandemic is the high rate of clinical variability. Whilst some patients present as asymptomatic, others are developing more severe symptoms such as pneumonia, and some cases are ultimately proving fatal. Why? We speak with Dr Salvatore Viscomi to learn more.
Addressing Key Challenges in Cell and Gene Therapy Manufacturing
Technology Networks spoke with Hugh H. Tansey, senior director of innovation and growth programs for laboratory equipment at Thermo Fisher Scientific to learn more about how the CTS Series Laboratory Equipment can deliver solutions for the key challenges in cell and gene therapy manufacturing.
