Discover why the Hyperion+ Imaging System is the standard to assess tumour-immune interactions and get deep single-cell insights.
Learn how you can mobilise CD34+ haematopoietic stem cells and how they can be isolated immediately after collection.
Product hub: Light the path to your next neuroscience discovery with a new ultrasensitive NF-L immunoassay
Discover all the ways you can harness ultrasensitive immunoassays to stay at the forefront of neuroscience research.
Dr Christopher Locher, Versatope Therapeutics, explains why bacterial extracellular vesicles are ideally suited for recombinant vaccines because target antigens can be expressed as fusion proteins and targeted to the lumen, membrane or surface of the vesicles. These nano-size vesicles represent a potentially safe and simple subunit vaccine delivery platform that…
Application note: Fast-track antibody discovery: a high-throughput method for identifying and isolating rare secreting cells
Discover how picodroplet microfluidic technologies can identify and isolate 'hit' cells, quantify varying concentrations of antigen-specific antibodies and much more.
Ensuring that drug candidates can reach the clinic is no easy task, so having models that can closely represent human pathology is crucial. Here, Dr Beth Hoffman, CEO of Origami Therapeutics, describes the successes and challenges of using human disease cell models in drug discovery.
Alzheimer’s disease remains one of the largest challenges for the global ageing population. In this article, Victoria Rees, Editor of Drug Target Review, reviews some of the latest research, highlighting how progress has been made in understanding tau as well as how to potentially target this protein as a therapeutic strategy against…
In the search for a rapid, easy way to identify drugs to fight SARS-CoV-2, researchers from across the US came together to develop and apply a high-throughput ADP-ribosylhydrolase assay, ADPr-Glo. Here, Dr Veronica Busa and Dr Anthony Leung from Johns Hopkins University describe the ADPr-Glo assay and how it can be…
In this Q&A, Immunexpress Chief Executive Officer Dr Rolland Carlson and Chief Scientific Officer Dr Richard Brandon discuss key aspects for molecular diagnostic discovery and development platforms, including how to best leverage microarray and next-generation sequencing (NGS) tools.
After initially serving as a proving ground for integrating forward engineering principles into living cells, synthetic biology is making waves across diverse therapeutic areas. In this article, Dr Dan Mandell, Co-Founder and CEO of GRO Biosciences, explains how the field is reshaping our understanding of the limits of cell- and molecular-based medicines.
Researchers at Synlogic are clearing the path for a new class of medicine – biotherapeutics based on synthetic biology, called synthetic biotics, which are created by programming or engineering bacteria to metabolise or secrete well-validated targets of disease pathophysiology. In this article, Dr Caroline Kurtz, Chief Development Officer at Synlogic, discusses how synthetic…
Antibody therapy has been a critical part of the COVID-19 research campaign to treat severe cases. Unfortunately, despite many promising candidates, scientists have yet to find one that passes clinical trials. This article by Drug Target Review’s Ria Kakkad highlights some of the most recent developments in the search for COVID-19…
In this exclusive Q&A, Drug Target Review’s Ria Kakkad spoke with Dr Jonathan Javitch, Professor at Columbia University’s Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, about the cutting-edge imaging method single-molecule fluorescence resonance energy transfer (smFRET), used to investigate G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs).
Within this ebook are features on synthetic biology, covering synthetic biotics and their potential to treat a wide range of diseases and conditions, while another piece examines the therapeutic directions the synthetic biology field will likely take in the future.
