    Webinar Summary

    An important function of a shared service laboratory (SRL) is the promotion of novel technologies for the benefit of the research community. This webinar introduces a systematic method to help SRL’s optimize their efforts when advertising new instruments/services within their facility. The GSTIC approach (Goal/Strategy/Tactics/Implementation/Control) allows SRLs to design a methodical approach to identify objectives/tactics, and most importantly, a clear set of expectations to evaluate the success of your strategies.

    Learning Objectives

    1. Understanding the GSTIC Approach: Participants will gain knowledge about the GSTIC approach and its application in increasing the value of services within a Shared Service Laboratory (SRL).

    2. Applying GSTIC for Marketing Goals: Participants will learn how different components of the daily activities within an SRL can be utilized to support marketing objectives, emphasizing practical application.

    3. Exploring Communication Channels: Participants will gain insights into the various communication channels that exist between an SRL and its users. This includes an examination of the pros and cons associated with different options, fostering a comprehensive understanding of effective communication strategies within an SRL context

    Who Should Attend: SRL Managers and Staff

    Use of Spectral Flow Cytometry in Clinical Trials By Veronica Nash and Tania Nevers

    image

    Veronica Nash, PhD
    US Regional Head of Flow Cytometry
    Cerba Research

    Veronica earned her B.Sc and M.Sc in Medical Biotechnologies from “Tor Vergata” and from “Sapienza” University, respectively, in Rome, Italy. She continued her training at Ghent University, Belgium where she received her PhD in Medical Sciences. After her PhD, she joined Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in NYC where she leveraged her knowledge in virology and immunology with her Flow Cytometry expertise to identify host cofactors in the immune cell which are involved in HIV and HTLV infection. Afterwards, she moved to Indiana University in Bloomington, IN, and as a staff scientist she optimized a Flow Cytometry method to identify protein mutants to be used as a target in precision medicine for Cystic Fibrosis. Veronica’s career in industry started at Wuxi Apptec where she developed Flow Cytometry assays for QC of drug therapy products, such as CAR-T cells and TILs. Then she joined Labcorp Drug development (Covance) as a staff scientist where she focused on Flow cytometry assay validation, data review and instrument implementation. Currently, as the US Regional Head of Flow Cytometry department at Cerba Research, she is the scientific lead for high-parameters Flow Cytometry; in the last year, she led a global team through the implementation and harmonization of Cytek Aurora instruments across multiple sites. Veronica is also an active member of ISAC and ICCS; currently she is the leader of a working group which aims at promoting CLSI H62 guidelines education within the Flow Cytometry community.

    Tania Nevers
    Senior Principal Scientist
    Bristol Myers and Squibb

    Tania earned her B.Sc and M.Sc in Biology from St John’s University, Queens NY before receiving her PhD in Biomedical Sciences from Brown University in Providence, RI. Following her Ph.D., Tania pursued a postdoctoral training at Tuft’s University where her work combined areas of immunology, vascular biology and cardiac physiology to study several aspects of adaptive immunity in diverse inflammatory settings. She then moved on to a Contract Research Organization, Flowmetric Inc, where she served as a  Scientist and then Project Manager. Her primary responsibility was to design, review and execute complex flow cytometry experiments in both preclinical and clinical studies for client sponsored projects. She then transitioned to the large Pharmaceutical Industry where she currently resides as a Senior Principal Scientist at Bristol Myers and Squibb. She primarily works on high order assay development, validation and implementation, and is the subject matter expert for Cytek Aurora implementation across BMS, including integration and harmonization activities.   

    When not at work, Tania enjoys spending quality time with family as well as listening to music, dancing and gardening. 

    About the webinar:

    The use of Spectral Flow Cytometry allows for a deeper characterization of immune subsets (immune profiling) than conventional flow cytometry and is more valuable with limited patient samples in biomarker discovery in drug development. This webinar describes how to implement and standardize Cytek Aurora instruments and how to design, develop, and validate 30+ parameters panels that can be successfully utilized in clinical trials.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Learn how to implement and standardize Cytek Aurora instruments
    • Understand how to validate an assay for 30+ colors on a spectral instrument to use in clinical trials
    • Learn solutions on challenges such as reference controls, unmixing strategies and experimental sept up when implementing a high-parameter assay for global clinical trials
