Event for expert public only
This time, we are pleased to announce a special technical seminar with Dr. Rainer Bläsius, BD Technologies, Heidelberg.
CCCC/DKTK Technical Seminar
Proteogenomic approaches to Intratumor Heterogeneity: the need for integrated workflows to understand solid tumor ecosystems
The current view of tumor tissue development includes a cellular ecosystem as integral model to understanding the basic cancer biology on which clinical progress needs to be based. We have developed a workflow which analyzes cell subpopulations and single cells in a multi-omic approach. Our data suggests a division of labor between cancer cell subpopulations and offers a blueprint for inclusion of all cells of the tumor and its microenvironment towards a deeper understanding of cancer biology and ultimately improved cancer patient care.
Date: November 28, 2016, 3 - 5 p.m.

Dr. Blaesius received his PhD in Biochemistry from the Freie Universität in Berlin. After continuing his graduate work on G-Protein-Coupled Receptor Signaling in his postdoctoral studies at UNC Chapel Hill, he developed GPCR-based assays for drug discovery as a Senior Scientist at Karobio, USA. Subsequently, he joined BD Technologies as a Senior Scientist and led the development of antibodies for cancer screening and staging assays. Under his guidance, a team of scientists developed a novel screening platform for Stem Cells which was used for collaborations with various Pharmaceutical companies as well as BD-internal product development in support of Stem Cell Therapies. In his present position as Technology Manager, Dr. Blaesius leads a project directed at using Flow Cytometry for Solid Tumor Tissues and Fluorescence ActivatedCell Sorting (BD FACS™) to enable Single Cell Molecular analysis of Solid Cancers.
We would like to cordially invite you to join us for an afternoon of exciting discussions and look very much forward to welcoming you there.
Furthermore, please feel free to distribute this announcement to people you think would be interested.
