Webinar Abstract:
Pre-Clinical Advancements to Reduce Attrition Rates in Biologic Drug Discovery
A number of factors, such as expression levels and proper folding, significantly influence the success rate of biologics during the development stage. With certain recombinant proteins, the optimal expression cannot be achieved by elevated transcription alone. Low productivity can be the result of a myriad of issues including faulty cleavage and protein precipitation, improper folding, metabolic overload, or backlog in protein translocation or vesicle trafficking. Within Selexis' SURE CHO-MplusT Libraries, a variety of cellular pathway components have been modified to address specific bottlenecks, such as aberrant glycosylation, improper protein folding, metabolic or translation issues. The SURE CHO-MplusT Libraries has been shown to significantly improve production levels of a broad range of proteins including difficult-to-express monoclonal antibodies, enzymes, structural proteins and fusion proteins such as Fc-fusions and minibodies.

About the Speaker:
Pierre-Alain Girod, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer
Dr. Girod joined Selexis in 2006 and was promoted to Chief Scientific Officer in 2007. Dr. Girod studied and received his PhD from the University of Lausanne. Prior to joining Selexis, Dr. Girod worked at the Department of Biology at the University of Lausanne in the field of targeted protein degradation. Earlier in his career, Dr. Girod completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the degradation of proteins by the ubiquitin pathway. In 1993 he returned to Switzerland where he discovered a family of genetic sequences involved in the epigenetic regulation of genes. This discovery has subsequently been used to by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to boost expression of therapeutic proteins.
