Weida TongKeynote Presentation

Regulatory Science – A Drug Development Perspective
Weida Tong, Director, US Food and Drug Administration, United States of America

Explain the FDA's new initiative on advancing regulatory science and its implication on drug development, describe three paradigms to enhance the drug pipeline and discuss three projects in FDA relating drug development via regulatory science.  


Advances in Protein/Peptide Arrays and Biomarker Discovery

10:00

Biomarker Discovery: SOMAscan and Clinical Data
Larry Gold, Chief Executive Officer/Chairman, SomaLogic, United States of America

10:30

University of ZurichTechnology Spotlight:
The Influence of Drop Drying on Chemical Reactivity: The Specific Case of Immobilization of Oligonucleotides on Microarray Surfaces
Jens Sobek, Research Scientist, University of Zurich


Drop drying is a key factor in a wide range of technical applications, including spotted microarrays. The applied nL liquid volume provides specific reaction conditions for the immobilization of molecules on a chemically modified surface. I report on the influence of nL and µL liquid drop volumes on the process of molecule immobilization and compare the results obtained with the situation in liquid solution. The data reveal a fundamental relationship between drop drying and surface chemistry on the one hand, and the selectivity of oligonucleotides, our model system, reacting with the surface on the other.

Coffee Break and Networking in Exhibition Hall

11:15

Dynamic Multi-Analyte Testing Technology for Accelerated Biomarker Measurement
Patrick van den Bogaard, Director, Biocartis, Switzerland

With the integration of semiconductor and microfluidics technologies we have developed a biomarker analysis platform that provides reproducible and high quality multiplex detection of proteins and nucleic acids in a very simple and short workflow. 

11:45

An Integrated System Using Peptide Arrays to Assess Kinase and Nuclear Receptor Activities in Clinical Samples for Biomarker Development
Bertrand Jordan, Advisor, CoReBio PACA, France

A system developed around peptide microarrays allows real-time measurement of phosphorylations or interactions, with sophisticated software for data acquisition and interpretation. It is applied to kinase activity profiling and nuclear receptor-coregulator interactions, in order to develop biomarkers and diagnostic applications.

12:30

Lunch Break and Networking in Exhibition Hall

13:30

Poster Viewing Session

14:15

Protein and Peptide Arrays for Immune Studies
Paul Utz, Associate Professor, Stanford University School of Medicine, United States of America

14:45

Effect of Feature Selection and Sample Size on the Evaluation Genomic Classifiers
Sitan Yang, Research Assistant, Johns Hopkins University, United States of America

We investigate the predictive performance of a representative set of genomic classifiers under conditions of different feature selection methods and training sample sizes. We analyze these effects using MAQC-II breast cancer as well as simulated datasets.     

15:15

Coffee Break and Networking in Exhibition Hall

16:00

Skinomics - The Use of Microarrays in Dermatology and Skin Biology
Miroslav Blumenberg, Associate Professor, NYU Langone Medical Center, United States of America

Due to accessibility skin and dermatology were among the earliest objects for microarray studies. Noninvasive skin sampling targeted melanomas; additionally, carcinomas, psoriasis, wound-healing, etc. have been analyzed. Recently, using microarrays identified genes specific for epidermal stem cells and those changing during keratinization.

16:30

Validation of Tissue Biomarkers
Stephen Hewitt, Clinical Investigator, National Institute of Health, United States of America

A data-driven review of the failure and means of improving tissue-based biomarker validation. 

17:00

Mark BradleyKeynote Presentation

Inkjet Fabricated Polymer Microarrays and their Biological Application
Mark Bradley, Professor, Schools of Chemistry and Medicine, University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Inkjet fabricated polymer microarrays have been developed in my group for a myriad of biological applications, including the discovery of surfaces for stem cell control; and materials for bone repair. 


Advances in DNA Arrays

10:00

Exploring the Global Genomic Landscape of Enteric Pathogens Using DNA Microarray Technology
Scott Jackson, Principal Investigator/Molecular Epidemiologist, United States Food and Drug Administration, United States of America

10:30

Coffee Break and Networking in Exhibition Hall

11:15

Self-Reporting Microarray Platforms that Use Molecular Beacon Probes
Salvatore Marras, Assistant Professor, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, United States of America

Molecular beacon probes, which generate a fluorescence signal only when they bind to their target, enable the development of self-reporting DNA microarrays.  This presentation will show how unlabelled nucleic acids can be detected using arrayed molecular beacons.


Advances in Lipid Arrays

11:45

High-Throughput Screening of Protein-Membrane and Drug-Membrane Interactions Using Lipid Microarrays Created with a Continuous Flow Microspotter™
John Conboy, Professor, University of Utah, United States of America

Micropatterned lipid bilayer arrays (MLBAs) using a Continuous Flow Microspotter™ (CFM, Wasatch Microfluidics) are used to measure protein-membrane and drug-membrane interactions in a high-throughput manner.
