‘Neuroscience models: tips and tricks for stem cell differentiation to cells of neural lineage, downstream protein analysis and quantification.’

Following on from the success of its first technical lecture in association with Life Technologies, Cambridge Neuroscience welcomes Dr David Bourdon to Cambridge. The lecture will look at neuroscience models (Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease) and focus on tips and tricks for stem cell culture, engineering and differentiation to cells of neural lineage and the downstream analysis through imaging/flow cytometry & protein analysis and quantification.

David’s Ph.D. and postdoctoral work focused on the study of G protein coupled receptor pharmacology and thrombosis. Following his academic training, he led Luminex multiplexing automation efforts at PerkinElmer. Joining Life Technologies in 2009, David is an R&D Staff Scientist in Carlsbad, California, where he and his team developed the ProtoPlex™ Immune Response Assay platform. David is a vocal advocate of utilizing Novex multiplexed immunoassay tools to measure both halves of the proteome (antigens & autoantibodies) with xMAP technology. Along with collaborators at the University of California – San Diego, David is utilizing the combined power of Novex multiplexed cytokine panels as well as the newly developed Novex ProtoPlex platform to perform immune profiling with the goal of identifying autoantibody biomarkers in high profile autoimmune and viral diseases. David welcomes discussions and can be reached at david.bourdon@lifetech.com

David will be in Cambridge for the entire day so please do not hesitate to get in touch with him to arrange a meeting.

Registration is FREE but is required and available at http://www.neuroscience.cam.ac.uk/events/event.php?permalink=1b46c26790

The lecture will be followed by a wine reception and an opportunity to talk to David.
