Webinar: Optimized Culture Conditions and Potency Testing Workflows to Support the Development of Cellular Therapies Using CRISPR-Cas Edited CD34+ Cells

December – Cellular Therapy topic

Webinar Date: Tuesday, December 15, 2020 06:00 PM

Standardized culture conditions are key to maintaining primitive hematopoietic cells in culture, and achieving efficient genome editing. We will discuss key considerations when developing optimized workflows for the in vitro culture of primative CD34+ cell populations, genome editing, and the importance of potency testing for manipulated cell therapy products.

Webinar: HLA 101

November – Transfusion Medicine topic

Webinar Date: Tuesday, November 17, 2020 6:00pm

Human leukocyte antigens (HLA) form the basis of immunology and our ability to recognize self versus non-self. By differentiating our cells from altered cells and pathogens, our immune system works to protect us. It is an amazing system.

Webinar: Navigating the Landscape of Unproven Cell-Based Products and Services

October – Cellular Therapy topic

Webinar Date: Tuesday 10/20/20 at 6:00pm

Laertis Ikonomou, PhD
Associate Professor, Department of Oral Biology
University at Buffalo, SUNY

There are hundreds of cell, tissue, and gene products at various stages of preclinical and clinical development worldwide. At the same time, a multifaceted industry that offers direct-to-consumer, unproven, and untested cell products and services has emerged. The ensuing ethical, scientific, and regulatory issues will be discussed.

Webinar: COVID-19 and Hemostasis: An Overview

September – Transfusion Medicine topic

Webinar Date: Tuesday 9/22/20 at 6:00pm

Walter “Sunny” Dzik, MD
Co-Director, Blood Transfusion Service
Massachusetts General Hospital

This presentation will summarize the growing conceptual framework for understanding the effect of severe COVID-19 infection on patients. COVID infection demonstrates the well-known intersection of inflammation and thrombosis and offers new opportunities to study the role of vascular endothelium and complement biology in hemostasis.
