Thermo Fisher Scientific Adds Antibody Validation Forum to Protein and Cell Analysis Education Series

As part of the Protein and Cell Analysis Education Series, which provides free-access to a series of educational webinars, Thermo Fisher Scientific has announced the addition of an Antibody Validation Forum. Attendees will learn from a panel discussion with key scientific leaders as they address the antibody reproducibility crisis.

Reproducibility and antibody validation standards are two significant challenges facing scientific researchers today. To address these issues, Thermo Fisher Scientific, a leading producer of antibodies, supported a group of leading researchers from several global institutions. This International Working Group for Antibody Validation (IWGAV) brainstormed and developed a set of proposed standards to optimize antibody validation methods with a specific emphasis on antibody specificity verification.

In this event, Thermo Fisher Scientific will host a live, virtual round table discussion in which representative IWGAV members and others from the research community will participate in a dialogue about antibody validation standards and practices, with the goal of finding consensus for how to further methods for verifying antibodies target specificity, using tests such as Knockout, Knockdown, IP-Mass Spectometry and Cell Treatment.

Panel participants include:

  •     Matt Baker - Director of Strategy and Partnering for Antibodies and Immunoassay, Biosciences Division, Thermo Fisher Scientific
  •     Anita Bandrowski, PhD - Scientific Lead, Neuroscience Information Framework, Center for Research in Biological Systems, University of California at San Diego; Founder and CEO of SciCrunch
  •     Aled Edwards, PhD - CEO, Structural Genomics Consortium, University of Toronto; International Working Group for Antibody Validation (IWGAV) member
  •     Christoph Hergersberg, PhD - Vice President of R&D for Protein and Cell Analysis, Antibodies and Immunoassays, Biosciences Division, Thermo Fisher Scientific
  •     John Rogers, PhD - Senior R&D Manager, Mass Spectrometry Reagents, Protein and Cell Analysis, Biosciences Division, Thermo Scientific
  •     Paul K. Wallace, PhD - Professor of Oncology, and Director, Flow and Image Cytometry Facility, Roswell Park Cancer Institute; Associate Professor of Pathology, State University of New York at Buffalo

LabRoots will host the forum May 30, 2017, beginning at 9:00 a.m. PDT, with additional presentations to follow.
