Location: Jackson Hole, Wyoming
The peace conference this year will be from Sept 19-23 in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Kambiz Shekdar will be presenting Automated cell engineering: Production of cell based assays that are accurate in vitro correlates of in vivo target activity and faster biologics production on Sunday, September 20th.
The Chromovert drug discovery platform uses transient fluorogenic nucleic acid probes to scan millions of clones for accelerated isolation of rare, optimal cell lines even for targets that had eluded prior reduction to cell based assays. Within three months, cell based assays that represent accurate in vitro correlates of in vivo target activity “IVC” can be produced for any target regardless of its sequence or biology. Data across a diverse set of challenging targets is presented and compared to traditional production methods (e.g., addition of tags or reliance on truncated or modified receptors) and targets lacking all or accessory subunits.
