  • Implementing MRI and MR-SIM for Radiation Oncology:  What you need to know Implementing MRI and MR-SIM for Radiation Oncology: What you need to know Carri K Glide-Hurst, PhD, DABR Senior Staff Physicist, Henry Ford Health System Recorded: Feb 15 2017 61 mins
    Almost all clinics, small and large, use magnetic resonance images (MRI) in their treatment-planning workflows. Modern treatment planning requires images of high geometric fidelity with high spatial and contrast resolution to delineate disease extent and proximity to adjacent organs at risk. However, imaging protocols needed for accurate treatment planning differ significantly from those used in diagnostic radiology. As the integration of MRI into radiation oncology is expanding rapidly, a need exists to highlight the considerations for safe and effective implementation. This webinar will describe the major differences from diagnostic MRI, provide an overview of MRI safety and training models, introduce clinical-workflow considerations, and describe the development of a robust quality-assurance programme. Special considerations for motion management and treatment planning will be described.

    LPWAN (low power wide area network) technologies service a specific and necessary role in the growth of Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity. Not all applications need bandwidth and speed. Sometimes long distance, low energy usage, and long latency is the perfect confluence of service that an IoT application needs. Some examples are city lighting, energy grid and meter management, parking space monitoring, precision irrigation, crop yield management, and many more.

    This webcast will present different LPWAN technologies and discuss a number of questions regarding technology and value assessment, deployment, usage of such networks, and return on investment evaluations.

    - An explanation of LPWAN technology and how it works
    - When to use (and not use) LPWAN technology
    - What issues such networks solve
    - The difference between U.S. and European bands and when this will matter to a company deploying an LPWAN network
    - Key information that cities and companies need to both ask and be ready to answer when planning to deploy an LPWAN network, in order to assess the right fit and to maximize efficiencies such connectivity can bring
    - How LPWAN networks integrate with other network infrastructure in smart community deployments, for example
    - Sample use cases
    - Business models that use LPWAN networks for energy management, asset management, and others
    - How to make money as both a user and deployer of LPWAN networks

  • Challenges and Successes in Externalization of the ADC Supply Chain Challenges and Successes in Externalization of the ADC Supply Chain Firelli Alonso, Ph.D. Recorded: Feb 14 2017 74 mins
    Sourcing for the manufacture and control of Antibody-Drug Conjugates (ADCs) used in clinical trials requires strategic planning, establishment of a specialized support network, and execution of several interdependent tasks. ADCs are complex molecules, a fusion of a biological, the monoclonal antibody (mAb), and of small molecules, the linker and the toxic payload. Facilities of acceptable standards for the handling of high potency materials need to be engaged, and there is a limited supply currently. This is further complicated by the fact that there is not one contract facility that has fully integrated services, a “one-stop shop” capable of mAb production, linker and/or payload synthesis, conjugation of mAb to linker-payload to make the Drug Substance, and finally, formulation of the ADC to make the Drug Product. Strategizing the best outsourcing practices for producing and testing ADCs, and establishing guiding principles for externalization to ensure the selection of the right CMOs for ADC outsourcing and technology transfer, will be further discussed.

  • Strengthening your app monetization super powers Strengthening your app monetization super powers Stewart Rogers, Director of Technology, VentureBeat Recorded: Feb 9 2017 60 mins
    It takes more than Superman or his Justice League to develop and maintain an effective app monetization strategy. This is especially true in light of a recent report which found that 0.19 percent of all mobile game players contributed 48 percent of revenue. How can one identify the high-spend users while not alienating the remaining percentage that only have potential to spend within the app?

    Ideally, one would customize app strategy according to type of user. Better still, each user would have her own strategy. Unfortunately this isn't a scalable solution to monetization.

    In this webinar, you'll learn to:

    * Customize your monetization strategy so that it's scalable
    * Unlock the revenue potential of lower spending users
    * Attract higher-spend users
    * Negotiate monetization strategies without alienating current users

  • 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.

  • Water conservation in coal-fired power plants Water conservation in coal-fired power plants Anne Carpenter Feb 23 2017 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    The vulnerability of the power generation industry to constraints in water availability is widespread and growing, and this is increasing the pressure on power plant operators to conserve water. This webinar will discuss where water can be conserved or recovered within pulverised coal-fired power plants. It will include ways of saving water in bottom ash handling, pollution control (flue gas desulphurisation), and cooling systems. Cooling typically accounts for the largest usage of water (where water is the coolant), and wet flue gas desulphurisation is the second largest use at wet-cooled plants. Techniques for recovering water from the pulveriser and pre-dryer exhausts, and from the flue gas are also discussed. There is an opportunity for power plants to become a supplier of both electricity and water, if sufficient water can be economically recovered from the flue gas. This could be a way forward for some coal fired power plants in the future, as well as helping to solve local fresh water shortages.

    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.

  • Simulating Electromagnetic Communication & Interference with COMSOL Multiphysics Simulating Electromagnetic Communication & Interference with COMSOL Multiphysics Dr Simone Zonetti, Applications Engineer, COMSOL Feb 28 2017 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The physics of electromagnetic coupling through space is fundamental to modern technology. It is exploited in some devices such as RFID tags and directional couplers to communicate information. In other devices, electromagnetic interference (EMI) is an unwanted effect that must be controlled: for example, the problem of crosstalk in electrical circuits and cables. In this webinar we will discuss the simulation of electromagnetic coupling in a variety of different applications, considering examples of capacitive, inductive and radiative couplings in frequencies from the kHz to GHz range. We will show how modelling can provide insight into design, either to improve the quality of a communication device, or to mitigate EMI through effective electromagnetic shielding. A live demo will illustrate how to simulate antenna crosstalk using COMSOL Multiphysics®. We will conclude this webinar with a Q&A session.
