YORBA LINDA, Calif. (PRWEB) October 26, 2017
Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR)-transduced T lymphocytes have demonstrated impressive clinical activity against B cell malignancies in phase I trials. In most instances, lentivirus-based or a retrovirus-based gene vectors were used to introduce the therapeutic gene expression cassette into the genome of T lymphocytes.
The gene expression cassette is composed of an internal promoter and the CAR, created by splicing together of extracellular antigen-binding motifs, linker and transmembrane domains, and intracellular lymphocyte signaling domains. This synthetic engineered receptor can be modified in a number of ways in order to further improve CAR T efficacy and safety.
During this webinar, which is sponsored by Miltenyi Biotec, attendees will receive a review of the critical aspects for creating CAR T cells, as well as gain an understanding of the process of CAR-modified cell manufacturing.
The speaker for this event will be Dr. Dina Schneider, who is a manager of translational R&D in cell biology at Lentigen Technology, a Miltenyi Biotec Company.
Dr. Schneider holds a doctorate in pharmacology and toxicology from Michigan State University. Her doctoral thesis focused on pathways of B cell activation and differentiation. Schneider leads the Cell Biology group at Lentigen Technology, Inc., a Miltenyi Biotec Company. Her group is focused on pre-clinical development of novel CAR-based therapies, and on the implementation of CliniMACS Prodigy® platform for preparation of cell-based therapeutics.
LabRoots will host the webinar November 7, 2017, beginning at 10:00 a.m. PST. To read more about this event, learn about the continuing education credits offered, or to register for free, click here.
