AACR Exhibitor Spotlight Theater Presentation
During the AACR Annual Meeting 2018 in Chicago, join MI Bioresearch for our Exhibitor Spotlight Session in Theater C where we will be giving a presentation on our Flow Cytometry Services.
Flow cytometry provides a highly adaptable and quantitative method for investigating both the cellular distribution and intracellular changes that occur in tumors and peripheral lymphoid organs in response to therapy. As clinical successes with cancer immunotherapy accumulate, preclinical immuno-oncology research depends on greater mechanistic understanding of novel therapeutic strategies. MI Bioresearch offers comprehensive flow panels for immune profiling and functional analysis of immune cells. This presentation highlights recent additions to our flow-based service portfolio, including more extensive analysis of myeloid and T cell markers, intracellular cytokine responses, and phospho-flow profiling of cell signaling in both tumor and immune cells.
Dr. Dylan Daniel, is an immunologist and preclinical oncology pharmacologist with leadership experience in all phases of early R&D for oncology and cancer immunotherapy. Dr. Daniel has a Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology and conducted post-doctoral work with Doug Hanahan at UCSF where he worked on immuno-oncology in genetically engineered mouse models. From there, Dr. Daniel worked at Genentech and then Novartis. In both companies he was focused on oncology pharmacology with small molecule and biologic drug discovery and development. Just previous to joining MI Bioresearch, Dr. Daniel was Chief Science Officer and Co-Founder of Patronus Therapeutics, Inc., a small biotechnology start-up developing novel oncology therapeutics.
Dr. David Draper, Associate Director of Scientific Development, has a background as an immunologist and is the flow cytometry subject matter expert at MI Bioresearch. Dr. Draper holds a Ph.D. in Microbiology from North Carolina State University. His post-doctoral work at Duke University and the National Institutes of Health focused on uncovering the mechanisms of the host pulmonary immune response to bacterial, viral, and allergen challenge using genetically engineered animal models. This body of work provided the foundation of Dr. Draper’s technical expertise in the area of immune cell immunophenotypic and functional characterization. Dr. Draper has also held immunodiagnostic and R&D positions within the Clinical Immunology/Flow Cytometry department at the Carolinas Medical Center and BD Biosciences prior to joining MI Bioresearch in 2015.
Please note that all Exhibitor Spotlight Presentations are on a first come, first serve basis. There is no need to sign up to attend. Just be sure to arrive on a timely basis to get one of the 50 seats available at our session!
