Multiplexed image-based drug screening in patient tissues for systems immunology and oncology
12 November 2019, 16:00 to 17:00 Guy's Hospital, Guy's Campus, London
Speaker: Professor Dr Berend Snijder, ETH Zurich
Cellular life is complex. It is the result of a near-endlessly optimized dynamic molecular network where cells, their genomes, genes, proteins, metabolites, lipids, and the environment all continuously interact and influence each other in an intricate molecular dance. Complicating matters, we can typically only measure a small subset of the relevant players at the same time.
To decipher how cells work we, therefore, take a top-down point of view, focusing on combining large-scale functional data from image-based screens with large-scale molecular measurements, such as genome-wide transcript abundance and quantitative lipidomics measurements. This integration ensures that we start from a functional point of view, asking what functional differences there are between cells or between individual people, and then apply unbiased OMICs approaches to find and validate those systems that best explain our observations.
Stem Cells @ Lunch
Stem Cells @ Lunch is a fortnightly lunchtime Tuesday seminar series, hosted by the Centre for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine as a forum for early career scientists to discuss together recent data and current topics in an informal setting. Visiting speakers are interviewed in our podcast series. Come join us, please click here to find out more.
Keeping the public up to date with current research taking place in the stem cell research community. Listen to guest speakers discuss their work, how they got to where they are today and their hopes for the future of stem cell research. Podcast is hosted by King's College London Centre for Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine. Please click here to find out more.
Challenges in Image Analysis Thursdays
Informal sessions held every Thursday at 11:30am in the seminar room of the Centre for Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine. We will discuss analysis issues and challenges on a specific subject chosen at the beginning of the session. No preparation necessary, just bring your laptop and ask advice from the community. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional details.
The series consists of research seminars by senior eminent national and international speakers from a wide variety of scientific backgrounds. These are perfect occasions to visit our centre and have a sense of our community and we would be delighted to show you around the stem cell hotel. The seminars take place in Seminar Room on the 28th floor of Tower Wing, Guy's Hospital, Guy's Campus once a month on different days, typically at 4pm. Come join us please click here to find out more.
