The biomanufacturing platform uses bursting bacteria and a shrinking capsule to produce targeted proteins
Update offers new functionality to enhance workflows in biologics discovery and cell line development
Stipends of $70,000 will support hands-on, post-doctoral training in pharmaceutical industry settings
New informatics solution for biologics discovery helps multidisciplinary and multi-organizational teams capture and track projects
Other goals of the center are to develop vaccines, immunotherapies, diagnostic reagents, and tests that aim to improve overall health
New analysis suggests common and costly medications made from living cells can be equivalent even when manufactured by different company
Antibodies are specific molecules that can lock onto a particular cellular structure to start, stop or otherwise temper a biological process. Because they are so specific, antibodies are at the forefront of drug discovery. So drug companies want a faster route to step one: identifying which of the millions of possible antibodies will work against molecules that cause disease.
Proactive use of IDBS’ E-WorkBook delivers continuous improvement across research, development and business operations.
Making and modeling better membranes could help unclog pharmaceutical pipelines
Problem: In recent years, cell biology has included more emphasis on the study of rapid movement inside live cells: its dynamics, mechanisms, electrochemical signaling and protein transport. To capture these events while avoiding image artifacts, frame rates must be high enough to accurately sample these cellular phenomena. Depending on the event, these rates can range from 20 to several thousand frames per second with exposure times well below 100ms.
