  • IoT Device Management
    IoT Device Management Charles J. Lord, PE, President & Chief Trainer, Blue Ridge Advanced Design and Automation Recorded: Mar 23 2017 64 mins
    In our final class, we will look at the “Things” of the IoT – our nodes and devices – and how we can effectively commission, monitor, and detect problems in them throughout their lifecycle. We will look at methods for adding device management capabilities in our devices from the design stage as well as ways to add these capabilities in the legacy devices we looked at in the previous class. One topic we will look at is effective commissioning and decommissioning of devices in the network – how can we add or remove a node from the network without adversely impacting the rest of the network? Another area we will look at is security assurance and testing: how can we be sure of the device security – and how can we test it? And lastly we will look at maintenance. What methods can we use for testing devices or paths within the network and how can we effectively and safely perform system updates? To conclude our class, we will review our checklist and see what other issues we may need to be aware of in our IoT design. Day 3 sponsored by Wind River

  • Monitoring and Securing IoT Data and Communications
    Monitoring and Securing IoT Data and Communications Charles J. Lord, PE, President & Chief Trainer, Blue Ridge Advanced Design and Automation Recorded: Mar 22 2017 61 mins
    In our second class, we will begin at the heart of the Internet of Things – the sending and receiving of data to our “things.” Whether it’s collecting a simple room temperature reading or capturing a video frame for analysis, the IoT enables us to collect huge amounts of data for analysis then send out data in the form of commands or as human-readable data. The diversity of end devices makes this task difficult at best, as it involves myriad data types and protocols. This is key as we want to ensure the safety, security, and integrity of that data from its source to its intended destination. We will look at various methods we can use in our device design to effectively monitor and secure our data flow throughout the entire IoT network. Also, we will look at ways that we can approach communications issues with different protocols and physical layers in our network, which often consist of legacy devices that were not originally designed for the robustness required in the IoT.

  • Trends in international financing of coal-fired power plants
    Trends in international financing of coal-fired power plants Paul Baruya Recorded: Mar 22 2017 33 mins
    What are the major institutional challenges and financial opportunities emerging for new HELE coal power plants? This webinar will examine the trends in coal project finance worldwide and accompanies one of the latest reports published by the IEA Clean Coal Centre.

    Publicly funded financial institutions such as multilateral development banks (MDB) and export credit agencies (ECA) based in OECD America and Europe have, since 2013, adopted strict lending rules for greenfield coal power projects. Greenfield projects may be supported financially, but it they will be authorised under rare and exceptional circumstances only. However, these particular financial institutions form a fairly small proportion of the funding made available to coal power projects worldwide. There is evidence that many other banks are willing to support High Efficiency and Low Emission, or HELE, coal technology in Asia, even in the wake of COP21.

    In Asia, public funding agencies and commercial banks in Japan, Korea, and China are pursuing coal projects abroad with the view of exporting their own HELE technologies to other regions, even into Europe. This means the impact of reduced funding from western public agencies might not be so severe. Furthermore, the arrival of the newly formed Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) could provide exciting opportunities for funding of cleaner coal technologies in the future.

  • Analytical Strategies for Comparability in Bioprocess Development
    Analytical Strategies for Comparability in Bioprocess Development Christine P. Chan, Ph.D & Joe Barco, 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.

    Sponsored by Unchained Labs

    Presentation Title: Limber up your lab with better tools for comparing biologics

    There’s no magic bullet when it comes to characterizing a protein by structure or function. Specific tests may work for one molecule but not the next. Instrumentation that provides a high degree of flexibility, balanced with low sample consumption and faster time to result, is crucial to keep up with ever changing laboratory needs. Unchained Labs puts biologics characterization front and center for our instrumentation development. We will discuss how our instruments let researchers be more flexible and efficient, while also providing clear data to help make comparability assessments.

  • Unlocking the value of pharmacists to reach the right patients and consumers
    Unlocking the value of pharmacists to reach the right patients and consumers Pierre-Yves Boisvert, Paulien Schul, Nina Felton and Andrew McConaghie Mar 29 2017 12:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Pharmacists are highly trained healthcare professionals who have a deep understanding of medicines and daily contact with patients and consumers. This puts them in a unique position in terms of being able to maximise the benefits that patients get from their medicines – however, healthcare systems and pharmaceutical companies frequently overlook this potential.
    Pharmacists are especially well placed to help patients with multiple long-term conditions manage their health and medications, and pharmacist-led interventions have been shown to have a very significant impact on compliance and disease management in the community.
    We present a webinar debate in which our expert panel will discuss how pharmaceutical companies can work in collaboration with pharmacists in Europe to help patients make the most of their medicines, help generate data to prove the value of these interventions, and above all get the right medicine to the right patients and consumers.
    Join us and the PHOENIX group as we look at the practical steps needed to make this a reality. Key topics to be discussed include:
    •The challenges of identifying the right patient population across European markets
    •Understanding how pharmacists can play a greater role in patient care, e.g. improved adherence and outcomes
    •How optimum use of pharmacy level information can contribute to providing ‘real world’ evidence of treatments

  • Enabling CAR-T Screening in 3D Tumor Spheroids
    Enabling CAR-T Screening in 3D Tumor Spheroids Van Dang, D.V.M., Ph.D., Abhi Saharia, Ph. D., and Audrey Bergeron, Applications Scientist Mar 30 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Webinar Date & Time: Mar 30 2017 12:00 p.m. EST

    Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T cells, which are engineered to recognize target cell surface antigens expressed on tumor cells, have shown promise to affect complete remission in patients with B-cell malignancies. However, applying this approach to target solid tumors has resulted in adverse effects in clinical studies. Methods for testing different models of CAR-T cells in vitro can provide further insight into viable antigen targets. Historically, two-dimensional (2D) cell culture models have been used in drug discovery. However, more elaborate, three-dimensional (3D) cell culture models better mimic the in vivo tumor microenvironment and help bridge the gap between in vitro studies and clinical outcomes.

    In this special joint webinar, panelists from ProMab Biotechnologies, DiscoverX, and Corning Life Sciences will present data on a high-throughput, easy-to-use, highly reproducible method for screening CAR-T cells in a 3D cell culture model by combining various technologies.
