CiPA Phase 2 Study: validation of an automated microelectrode array (MEA) assay of hiPSC-derived cardiomyocyte electrophysiology for cardiac safety evaluation

Poster

These results support the use of hSC-CM and MEA technology for preclinical assessment of proarrhythmic risk within the proposed CiPA paradigm, and, more generally, demonstrate that automation of the CM-MEA assay can achieve high reliability and throughput for cardiac risk assessment in vitro.

Modulation of GPRC6A Signaling to Mitigate Tauopathies

Poster

Overall, our data suggest that decreased GPRC6A signaling reduces tau pathology. Further studies is required to warrant the role of GPRC6A in amino acid sensing associated autophagy or other protein degradation mechanisms. GPRC6A allosteric antagonists may potentially find utility as novel drugs to treat tauopathies and related disorders.

Amyloid Beta Nano Particle used to Sensitize Dendritic Cells as a Therapeutic Vaccine against Alzheimer's disease

Poster

This project researches the use of immunotherapy to combat Alzheimer's disease. This is achieved by exposing dendritic cells, antigen presenting cells, to amyloid beta in order to sensitize the cell. The results indicate that a mutant form of amyloid beta was successful in producing anti-amyloid-beta antibodies and in improving behavior in the mice.
