  • Rescheduled: Multicellular Tumor Spheroids in HTS: New Assays Rescheduled: Multicellular Tumor Spheroids in HTS: New Assays Wojciech Senkowski Recorded: Feb 1 2017 50 mins
    Three-dimensional cell cultures, and multicellular tumor spheroids in (MCTS) in particular, have recently become a widely used tool for preclinical anticancer drug testing in high-throughput screening (HTS) setup. However, even though MCTS have been applied for HTS, their use has been limited to simple assays, such as assessing cell viability or inhibition of growth.

    This webinar will cover new approaches to MCTS-based HTS. It will present a new, robust viability assay, well-suited for HTS and based on green fluorescent protein (GFP) used as a surrogate marker of spheroid viability. It will also review a first-ever approach to obtain information-rich transcriptomic data from drug-treated MCTS on a large scale. In addition, the presenter will demonstrate how this novel platform resulted in the identification of previously unrecognized, context-dependent drug responses of cancer cells and in findings with potential clinical relevance.

    In summary, this webinar will demonstrate new ways of how MCTS-based HTS can be used to provide unique insights into context-dependent biology and cellular drug responses.

    About the Presenter:

    Wojciech Senkowski will soon complete his Ph.D. in Medical Sciences at Uppsala University, Sweden. In his work, he looks for applications of various tumor spheroid models in high throughput drug screening. For his work, Wojciech has received the AACR Scholar-in-Training Award. He was also a presenter and expert panelist at the Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News webinar on 3D cell cultures, sponsored by Corning in February of 2016.

  • Billion-dollar Growth Opportunities in the Global Healthcare Industry by 2025 Billion-dollar Growth Opportunities in the Global Healthcare Industry by 2025 Visionary Healthcare Team: Venkat Rajan and Siddharth Shah Recorded: Jan 25 2017 59 mins
    The healthcare industry is undergoing rapid transformation. By 2025, the healthcare ecosystem is expected to look drastically different from today. In 2025, global trends of aging populations, rising chronic disease prevalence and urbanization are bound to further strain healthcare systems already grappling with issues of healthcare access, quality, and cost. In response, new business models are expected to emerge to address the needs of the future. In order to make the most gains, stakeholders must successfully leverage this transformation.
  • Visibility and Security - Two Sides of the Same Coin Visibility and Security - Two Sides of the Same Coin Cricket Liu, Exec VP, Infoblox; Dan York, CISSP, DNS Sec Prog Mgr, Internet Society; Recorded: Jan 19 2017 60 mins
    You can't secure what you can't see and not knowing what's on your network can be damaging. While security is about proactively detecting and mitigating threats before they cause damage, it is also about gaining deep visibility into today's complex networks which may include diverse platforms and architectures. A truly enterprise grade DNS, DHCP and IPAM (DDI) platform can provide that visibility because of where it sits in networks. On the downside, DNS is a top threat vector but it can be used as strategic control points to block malicious activity and data exfiltration. Join Infoblox and (ISC)2 on January 19, 2017 at 1:00PM Eastern for a round table discussion featuring Cricket Liu, a well known authority on the Domain Name System and the co- author of all of O'Reilly & Associates' Nutshell Handbooks on DNS, as we examine how strategic DNS can be used for visibility and security.

  • Data Center Consolidation and Simplification with Hyperconverged Data Center Consolidation and Simplification with Hyperconverged Sushant Rao, Sr. Director Product & Solutions Marketing, DataCore Software Recorded: Jan 18 2017 40 mins
    Server virtualization was supposed to consolidate and simplify IT infrastructure in data centers. But, that only “sort of happened”. Companies do have fewer servers but they never hit the consolidation ratios they expected. Why? In one word, performance.

    Surveys show that 61% of companies have experienced slow applications after server virtualization with 77% pointing to I/O problems as the culprit.

    Now, with hyperconverged, companies have another opportunity to fulfill their vision of consolidating and reduce the complexity of their infrastructure. But, this will only happen if their applications get the I/O performance they need.

    Join us for this webinar where we will show you how to get industry leading I/O response times and the best price/performance so you can reduce and simplify your infrastructure.

  • Detect Ransomware Before it’s Too Late with AlienVault USM Detect Ransomware Before it’s Too Late with AlienVault USM Jim Hansen Feb 21 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    By now you've probably heard about new ransomware threats like CryptoWall, which encrypts your data and demands payment to unlock it. These threats are delivered via malicious email attachments or websites, and once they execute and connect to an external command and control server, they start to encrypt files throughout your network. Therefore, spotting infections quickly can limit the damage.

    AlienVault USM uses several built-in security controls working in unison to detect ransomware like CryptoWall, usually as soon as it attempts to connect to the hackers’ command and control server. How does it all work? Join us for a live demo that will show how AlienVault USM detects these threats quickly, saving you valuable clean up time by limiting the damage from the attack.

    You'll learn:

    How AlienVault USM detects communications with the command and control server
    How the behavior is correlated with other signs of trouble to alert you of the threat
    Immediate steps you need to take to stop the threat and limit the damage

    Working in silos, while never a good idea, is a reality in many organizations today. Security and network operations teams have different priorities, processes and systems. Security teams use various controls and tools to mitigate different kinds of threats which provides them with thousands of alerts on a daily basis. They often find it difficult to prioritize the threats to address first. What they may not know is that there is a whole piece of the puzzle they could be missing - core network services like DNS, DHCP and IPAM. These can provide a wealth of information and context on threats, which can help prioritize response based on actual risk and ease compliance. Join Infoblox and (ISC)2 on February 23, 2017 at 1:00PM Eastern for a roundtable discussion on how to use ecosystem integrations between network and security tools for better security and compliance.

  • Analytical Strategies for Comparability in Bioprocess Development Analytical Strategies for Comparability in Bioprocess Development Christine P. Chan, Ph.D Mar 28 2017 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Comparability exercises are commonly required at certain milestones during drug development as well as after product registration when changes are implemented into the manufacturing process. The goal is to evaluate if the product remains highly similar (not necessarily identical) before and after the change in terms of quality and stability and have no adverse impact on safety and efficacy predicted for the patients. This assessment requires product-specific knowledge gathered through drug development, taking a totality-of-evidence approach. The different levels of information are obtained from analytical studies for characterization of the molecule, animal studies for toxicity, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics for pharmacological activities, and clinical studies for safety/tolerability, immunogenicity and efficacy. This Webinar discusses strategies and considerations for analytical characterization of protein structure and function which forms the foundation of the comparability demonstration.
