NEUTROPHIL SWARMING

At the Intersection of Discovery and Technology: Understanding Inflammation in the SLAS Zone

Daniel Irimia, M.D., Ph.D., is an engineer at heart. However, he took a slight detour en route to his current role as associate professor and deputy director of the BioMEMS Resource Center at the Center for Engineering in Medicine, Massachusetts General Hospital (Boston, MA) after first training as a medical doctor in his native Romania. Now combining an engineer’s mind with a physician’s knowledge, he and his colleagues have designed a large-scale microparticle-cluster array to replicate human neutrophil swarming outside the body, which allows the study of signaling pathways and mediators during swarming.

SLAS DISCOVERY SPECIAL COLLECTION

Celebrating Statistical Guidance and Integration in Biomedical Science

“When biostatisticians and biomedical scientists work together – early and often – the end result is more satisfying science,” says Paul Kayne, head of Genomics (Discovery), Bristol-Myers Squibb (Princeton, NJ). And, by satisfying science, Kayne and Robert Nadon, Ph.D., associate professor, Department of Human Genetics at McGill University (Montreal, Quebec, Canada), mean productive and verifiable science that translates effectively to clinical applications.

ANSWER THE CALL

The SLAS Community Struts Its Stuff!

By Sabeth Verpoorte, Ph.D.

Did you know that at one point earlier this month, SLAS had five active calls for abstracts in process (the 2019 SLAS International Conference and Exhibition, three additional events and one journal special issue), as well as the ongoing calls for manuscripts for SLAS Discovery and SLAS Technology? SLAS is a bustling community of practicing life sciences professionals who willingly share innovations for the betterment of all.
