Connected chemistry: How to choose the most promising drug candidates from your hit list

AI and machine learning (AI/ML) methods offer an alluring way to expedite the drug discovery process by delivering a large number of possible new candidates for any given therapeutic area. However, insight from medicinal chemists is still necessary to triage and prioritise the most promising molecules for synthesis, and progress these through the Design-Make-Test-Analyse (DMTA) […]

Improving cell therapies with high-throughput CAR libraries

CAR-T cell therapies are a promising approach for treating solid tumours. But identifying appropriate T-cell receptor (TCR) domains that exclusively target tumour antigens remains a challenge. Toxicity, tumour activation, and tumour persistence are significant challenges to using CAR-T cell therapies for solid tumours. In this webinar, Twist Bioscience’s CSO, Aaron Sato, will present several proof-of-concept […]

Embedding quality into cell line development through the application of an innovative picodroplet-based single cell sorter

Generation of a highly expressing, regulatory acceptable clonal cell line is the first key activity in the development of a biopharmaceutical. Cell line development is labour intensive, time consuming and costly and is subject to stringent regulations to ensure patient safety. All cell lines used to produce clinical batches of biopharmaceuticals are required to conform […]

Early phase support for plasmid DNA supply to secure future manufacturing

One critical bottleneck in Cell and Gene Therapy (CGT) manufacturing is the production of high-quality plasmid DNA (pDNA), a vital building block for mRNA-based vaccines, viral vector-based cell or gene therapies that require pDNA as a starting material. Building a robust supply of GMP-grade pDNA requires that quality be a focal point of the production […]

Reveal the best drug targets with Engineered Cell Libraries

CRISPR-based knockouts are the gold-standard genetic perturbation method in target identification and validation. However, efficient CRISPR knockout editing and transfection for arrayed screening require specialised skills and infrastructure that your organisation may not have. What if you could receive ready-to-use CRISPR-edited cells without needing to handle, optimise, and transfect your CRISPR library?  In this on-demand […]

Innovative assays for neurodegeneration drug discovery programs

Neurodegenerative diseases are characterised by neuronal damage, degradation of the blood-brain barrier and failures in the normal repair mechanisms of the brain. Many of the most promising areas of drug development in this field target neuroinflammation and remyelination. In this on-demand webinar, presented by Dr Elise Malavasi, Principal Scientist at Concept Life Sciences, we use […]
