  • With data breaches and data leakage incidents becoming front page news, cyber investigations are taking on more importance within organizations. This calls for a new set of skills to be developed such as the ability to work with all levels of law enforcement, lawyers and attorneys and within the judicial system. Many of these investigations will call for the cybersecurity practitioner to be a witness and give testimony. What's the best way to do this to protect yourself and the organization, while also providing the information that will help law enforcement and the justice system to get the information they need? Join (ISC)2 on March 26, 2015 at 1:00PM Eastern for our next "From the Trenches" webcast where we'll talk about what it means to be an expert witness and the best practices for serving as one.
  • Abstract:
    There is a great interest in application of human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) in cell therapy and tissue engineering due to their self-renewal, multi-lineage differentiation, immunomodulation, and trophic potential. One of the challenges faced in the clinical application of hMSCs is the need for efficient expansion of these cells in vitro without altering their capacity. Serum-free mammalian cell culture media, in particular, require optimization of the expansion protocols. Even subtle changes in routine handling can have a significant impact on the cells’ potential.

    This seminar will cover the variables that can influence the desired regenerative and differentiation properties including medium selection, vessel surface treatment, impact of the cell source, and seeding density. We will also discuss how users can select the correct conditions for optimized growth and functionality.

    Speaker Biography:
    Brian Posey is a Product Development Manager for cell culture media at Corning Life Sciences. Brian has over 10 years experience in cell biology and industrial scale cGMP manufacturing of both liquid and powder cell culture media. Since joining Corning in 2012, Brian has lead numerous innovative technology projects for the media business ranging from customer technology transfer for production scale-up to developing new serum-free media for industrial and stem cell lines.
  • Sutter Health is a not-for-profit health system serving more than 100 communities in Northern California. Each year its 5,000 physicians care for more than 10 million outpatient visits and discharge more than 200,000 in-patients.

  • Regardless of the colour of the next UK government that emerges as a result of the May election, the £30-£50bn NHS budget chasm is the abyss that all the parties fear in respect of its thereat to quality health service delivery and re-election.

    With political backs to the abyss, no hostages will be taken. It is not unrealistic to expect a well co-ordinated and concerted offence by politicians and patient organisations alike on industry pricing of innovative speciality and rare diseases medicines:

    With this scenario in mind pharmaphorum is once again working with IMS Health to bring you expert insight into what this means for the UK health system and more specifically market access for specialist treatments in the post-election environment.

    Angela McFarlane, Senior principal IMS Health Local Market Access and Sheela Upadhyaya, NHS Senior Manager and member of the NICE highly specialised technologies program with over 17 years of experience in the delivery of services and in commissioning of highly specialised services for rare and ultra rare conditions, combine with pharmaphorum's Paul Tunnah to deliver an accurate analysis and frontline insight as to the already complex roadmap for access is about to change again.

    This one hour event will include analysis of informed predictions which include:

    The NICE HTA criteria will get tougher post end to end review (IMMTreV)
    NICE and the NHS England will join forces to streamline access pre/post NICE
    Risk at local level will be shifted to Providers under the new marginal tariff arrangements; which could indeed see a close to the CDF as the PbR excluded drugs list becomes a thing of a glorious past
    Provider baselines will take the strain of innovation - the tough decisions will be softened by a drive to really accelerate uptake of NICE approved medicines

    How can industry prepare for these changes in what is already a tough and complex environment?
  • More than 100,000 information security professionals have invested time, effort and resources to achieve what has long been considered the Gold Standard security certification – The CISSP.

    During this panel session you'll hear different perspectives, including that of the hiring manager, recruiter and credential holders themselves around the following questions:

    - How is the CISSP viewed in the market place?
    - Which career paths are worth exploring with a CISSP?
    - What skillset does a CISSP have?
    - Is the CISSP a differentiator for a candidate?
    - How does the CISSP help the professional perform his job?

  • By the third week of May we should all know the composition of the next government. Whichever party or parties assume power, the next government will need urgently to confront a demand resource collision that threatens the continued existence of the welfare state and of the NHS itself.

    It has long been apparent that, as the House of Lords Select Committee on Public Service and Demographic Change made clear in 2013: "England has an inappropriate model of health and social care to deal with the needs of an ageing population ... By 2030 the number of people who are 85+ will have increased by 100%' compared to 2010".

    The argument for greater coherence and integration of health and social care commissioning and provision is driven as much by considerations of coherence and quality as it is by financial necessity. As the Five Year Forward View has already made clear there may be ‘local choice between radical options', but not a choice between the maintenance of the status quo and a radical option. For NHS commissioners and providers (across all specialisms) the challenge is to grasp the opportunity to shape new local forms of integrated commissioning and service development.

    The NHS organisations that survive and thrive in such a rapidly evolving and competitive marketplace will be characterised by proactivity, agility and their eagerness to embrace new forms of strategic partnership.

    This Webinar will consider the specific governance challenges that will confront Boards and Governing Bodies in an evolving cultural context where, as Stevens recently observed, “my institution right or wrong is not going to be what’s required from the service’s new generation of leaders".
