Excellence in Research Webinar Series

Your trusted resource for cell lines, microbial strains, biological reagents, and innovative solutions announces the 2014 Excellence in Research webinar series. Each webinar will demonstrate how to utilize ATCC products and services to advance your research. The webinars will be broadcasted live at 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM ET, and will be followed by a question and answer period.


Tigwa DavisUsing LUHMES Cells as a Model System to Study Dopaminergic Neuron Cell Biology
Tigwa H. Davis, Ph.D., Senior Scientist, Neurobiology, ATCC
October 16, 2014 10:00 AM ET or 3:00 PM ET

Dopaminergic neurons play significant roles in motor, reward, and motivational behavior related circuits throughout the brain. To date, there are few continuous in vitro models available to laboratories in research, industry, and academia for studies related to basic dopaminergic cell biology or high throughput screening. Here, we propose the use of a human model system, LUHMES cells, to study dopaminergic neuron cell biology. During this webinar, we will highlight some of the advantages of using LUHMES cells, as well as examples of how they have been used in drug screening and to study the molecular mechanisms related to Parkinson’s Disease.
Register for a session - 10:00 AM ET or 3:00 PM ET.


Tigwa DavisPrecise Counting of Targeted Nucleic Acids has Never Been Easier
Francisco Bizouarn, Global Digital Applications Specialist, Digital Biology Center, Bio-Rad Laboratories
October 30, 2014 10:00 AM ET or 3:00 PM ET

Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR) is an elegant technology that permits accurate and absolute quantification of target nucleic acid molecules. By subpartitioning a PCR reaction into thousands of nanoliter sized droplets, amplifying, and subsequently individually interrogating them, ddPCR allows for increased quantitative resolution, enhanced detection of difficult to amplify targets, better reproducibility, and simplified data analysis. This webinar will provide a technical overview of ddPCR from technical and workflow related perspectives as well as review key applications such as copy number variation (CNV) analysis, rare mutation detection (RMD) analysis, and standard free (stand-alone) absolute quantification of nucleic acids.
Register for a session - 10:00 AM ET or 3:00 PM ET.


John Pulliam3D Tissue Modeling
John Pulliam, Ph.D., Field Application Scientist, ATCC
November 13, 2014 10:00 AM ET or 3:00 PM ET

The emergence of 3D tissue modeling raises new possibilities for the study of complex physiological processes in vitro. Advances in cell isolation, media development, substrates, and growth surfaces are leading to protocols that provide more functionality than traditional 2D cell culture. These models may provide a more predictive analysis and result in a more streamlined process of drug discovery and development. In this webinar, we will discuss recent developments in 3D modeling using ATCC primary and hTERT immortalized cells in areas such as cancer, wound healing, and respiratory studies.
Register for a session - 10:00 AM ET or 3:00 PM ET.
