In the dynamic landscape of biomedical research, choosing the right cells for your experiments is a fundamental step to achieve meaningful and reproducible results. Careful consideration is vital to success, whether your work involves drug discovery, disease modeling, cytotoxicity assays, or studying cellular processes.
Join us on Jan. 11 for cell selection tips from Sharon Presnell, PhD, LifeNet Health LifeSciences Vice President of Product Development. Her talk will cover:
- How the inherent genetic and epigenetic characteristics of cells can impact their responses to modifiers
- Special considerations for primary cells, which offer greater physiologic relevance but require adaptation of standard approaches to maximize their translational value
- How to leverage diversity in cell origin to improve the predictive power of in vitro assays
