Thermo Fisher Scientific Addresses the Antibody Reproducibility Crisis with Panel Discussion
Date:8/14/2017

Every year, millions of dollars are wrongly allocated for poorly characterized and performing antibodies. Key researchers in the antibody community have recently come together to address this antibody crisis and develop standards to ensure proper characterization and consistency for antibodies in the laboratory.

The team at Thermo Fisher Scientific has arranged for an educational panel discussion with leading scientific experts. They will discuss the antibody reproducibility crisis and proposed testing standards for antibodies to ensure they’re binding to the intended targets. Panel members include the following speakers:

  • Aled Edwards, PhD

CEO, Structural Genomics Consortium, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada; International Working Group for Antibody Validation (IWGAV) member

  • Matt Baker

Director of Strategy and Partnering for Antibodies and Immunoassay, Biosciences Division, Thermo Fisher Scientific

  • Anita Bandrowski, PhD

Scientific Lead, Neuroscience Information Framework, Center for Research in Biological Systems, University of California at San Diego, San Diego, California, USA; Founder and CEO of SciCrunc

  • Paul K. Wallace, PhD

Professor of Oncology, and Director, Flow and Image Cytometry Facility, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Buffalo, NY, USA; Associate Professor of Pathology, State University of New York at Buff

  • John Rogers, PhD

Senior R&D Manager, Mass Spectrometry Reagents, Protein and Cell Analysis, Biosciences Division, Thermo Scientific

  • Christoph Hergersberg, PhD (Moderator)

Vice President of R&D for Protein and Cell Analysis, and Antibodies and Immunoassays, Biosciences Division, Thermo Fisher Scientific

LabRoots will host the webinar September 12, 2017, beginning at 8:00am PDT, 11:00am EDT. To learn more about this event or to register for free, click here.
