Vizgen sponsored Webinar on

Investigation of Cellular and Molecular Pathways for Anti-Tumor Immune Response in Early-Stage Hepatocellular Carcinoma

In this webinar, Assaf Magen of the Precision Immunology Institute at Mount Sinai Icahn School of Medicine will review the recent neoadjuvant clinical trial of PD-1 blockade in early-stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients, in which the team observed a 30 percent pathological response rate, prompting a detailed investigation into the cellular and molecular pathways that promote an effective anti-tumor immune response. Magen and team focused on T-cell-rich lesions (in contrast to T-cell-low or excluded tumors) because, despite no apparent defects in T-cell priming and recruitment to tumors, a large subset of T-cell-rich lesions still failed to respond to checkpoint blockade.

In this webinar, Magen will discuss:

  • How mregDC/T-helper niches enable local reactivation of CD8 T cells upon PD-1 blockade.
  • Correlations and mechanisms of response to ICB in early-stage HCC.
  • Single-cell molecular and spatial profiling of immune cells.
  • Mapping of cellular interactions.

NanoCellect Webinar on

Discover How Microfluidics-Based Cell Sorting Could Be a Better Option for Your Application

Learn about differences between traditional high-speed cell sorters and gentler microfluidics-based cell sorters. We will review the operational differences and how fast cell sorting is not the best choice for some applications, such as nucleic sorting, gentle cell deposition for cell line development, high-viability cell sorting for downstream applications–and the reasoning behind it. 

We will highlight:

  • Concerns with traditional high-pressure cell sorting and why it may not be the best choice for your sensitive cells applications
  • How gentle cell deposition improves clonal outgrowth for developing cell lines
  • The benefits of low-pressure sorting of highly viable cells or free nuclei to optimize downstream genomics and sequencing applications

Applied Cells Webinar on

Applying MARS® for Pre-Enrichment of Breast Cancer Disseminated Tumor Cells in Bone Marrow

Applied Cells novel MARS®  platforms provide innovative solutions for Rare Cell isolation.
Join us for a webinar introducing MARS® technology and its use examples. Our Guest Elizabeth M. Chislock, Ph.D., is a Senior Research Investigator in the laboratory of Dr. Lewis Chodosh in the Department of Cancer Biology at the University of Pennsylvania. 
Dr. Chislock’s primary research interest is in investigating the biology of disseminated tumor cells (DTCs) in the bone marrow in order to better understand the mechanisms underlying breast cancer dormancy and recurrence, including the application of novel pre-enrichment methodologies for improved detection and isolation of these rare tumor cells.

Spatial Transcriptomics Helps Sniff Out a More Comprehensive Olfactory Map

We invite you to join our upcoming webinar with Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News on October 13th! Dr. Paul Greer from UMass Chan Medical School will present "Spatial Transcriptomics Helps Sniff Out a More Comprehensive Olfactory Map." Dr. Greer will share how his laboratory uses spatial transcriptomics and machine learning to reconstruct a map of the majority of glomerular positions within the mouse olfactory bulb.

A live Q&A session will follow the presentation, offering you a chance to pose questions to our expert panelist.
