Online Discussion | Thursday, January 25 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. CST

January's Technology Idea Exchange explores the topic of Chemoresponse profiling of solid tumors derived from patients combined with drug gene networking. 

Timothy Spicer, Ph.D., research professor and senior scientific director for The Herbert Wertheim UF Scripps Institute for Biomedical Innovation and Technology, will lead this discussion focusing on how the work is done using 3D tissue culture in 1536 well formats, allowing for rapidly triage tumor sensitivity on all known oncology drugs within a matter of days. This conversation will explore how this method provides a powerful new platform for precision medicine initiatives when combined with RNA sequence data used in synch.
