After completion of a first degree in Chemical Engineering/Biotechnology (FHO Emden, Germany) he carried out a PhD in Applied Molecular Biology at UMIST (Manchester, UK). Following a short postdoctoral period in the Department of Biochemical Engineering at UCL he became a Lecturer and currently holds a position as Associate Professor. He has an established track record in modelling, engineering and scale-up/down of fermentation and cell culture processes. In recognition for his contributions to the development of miniature bioreactor technologies he received the 2010 Pharmaceuticals Division Plenary Award of the AIChE. He has published over 80 papers and co-authored 4 book chapters.
Matt Bochenek received his BS in Industrial and Enterprise Systems Engineering from the University of Illinois Urbana/Champaign. His interest in biological systems made him alter his focus, and he pursued a Ph.D. in Bioengineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). Here, he worked with Dr. Jose Oberholzer in a Phase III clinical trial for intraportal islet transplantation. This entails isolating insulin producing islet cells from human donor pancreata and transplanting them intraportally into Type I diabetic patients in order to restore glycemic control. Currently, he works as a senior post-doc in Dr. Dan Anderson and Dr. Bob Langer labs at MIT. and works for cell and. Matt's work primarily focuses on the development of immunomodulatory biomaterials, specifically for the immuno-protection of islet cells and other cell-based therapies, as well for cancer therapies. Recently, he published in Nature BME to show that anti-fibrotic alginate modified materials can protect islet cells in non-human primates for up to 4 months without the need for immunosuppression.
Mr. Pratik P. Kulkarni is a PhD. Research scholar (awaiting final defense) at the National Forensic Sciences University (NFSU). He received his bachelors in pharmacy from K.B Inst. Of Pharma. Edu. and Research, and a master's degree in nano drug delivery systems from NFSU, Gandhinagar, India. His research interests include development of drug loaded nanocarriers for combinative drug delivery applications. Till now he has published 9 scientific papers in journals of International repute. His work on Breast cancer nanoformulation was awarded a place in the virtual issue titled “Most original and Most significant scientific contribution” in 2018 (Elsevier).
Sakis Mantalaris is Professor in the W.H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech & Emory. Prior, he was Professor of BioSystems Engineering in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London. He received his PhD (2000) in Chemical Engineering from the University of Rochester. His expertise is in modelling of biological systems and bioprocesses with a focus on mammalian cell culture systems, stem cell bioprocessing, and tissue engineering. He has published over 170 original manuscripts, co-edited one book, and holds several patents with several more pending. He has received several awards including the Junior Moulton Award for best paper by the Institute of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) in 2004. In 2012, he was elected Fellow of the American Institute for Medical & Biological Engineering and in 2013 he was awarded a European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Award. In 2015, he was awarded the Donald Medal by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) for his contributions to biochemical engineering.
Patricia McNeill joined Lundbeck Seattle BioPharmaceuticals Inc. in October 2019 as part of the acquisition of Alder Biopharmaceuticals. As Associate Director of Cell Culture Development, she has overseen the successful upstream process development for early to late stage cell culture and fermentation processes producing therapeutic monoclonal antibodies. She was hired as the 10th employee at Alder and has since held progressive leadership roles including the build-out and expansion of the research development lab for yeast fermentation. As Alder grew and new production platforms were needed, Patricia was tasked in establishing a CHO cell culture platform from the ground up. Prior to Alder, Patricia worked at Corixa Corporation where she was responsible for production of E. coli antigens used in cancer vaccine therapies. Her passion is using Design of Experiment (DOE) studies to decrease Cost of Goods (COGs), increase process efficiency, and robustness, and speed up development timelines.
I am a 5th year PhD candidate in the Bioinformatics & Systems Biology program at UC San Diego with Dr. Nathan Lewis as my advisor. I received a B.S in Biology with a minor in computational neuroscience at Carnegie Mellon University, working on mu-opioid receptor recycling in Dr. Manoj Puthenveedu's lab. I then worked in Dr. Eric Halgren's lab, using ECog data to understand spatiotemporal patterns in sleep and memory. In the Lewis lab, my dissertation examines different points in the lifecycle of biopharmaceuticals, from production to application, using next-generation sequencing technology. My first project-the topic of my talk today- improves the resolution of the transcription start sites (TSSs) in the Chinese Hamster using comprehensive multi-omics across various tissues. This elucidated regulatory regions such as the TATA box and initiator element, enabled CRISPR activation for the Mgat3 gene, and provided a valuable resource for the CHO community. My second focus is on the application of a novel immuno-therapeutic to the clonal makeup of the hematopoietic CD34+ stem and progenitor cell population. Using a recently published single-cell mitochondrial ATAC-seq methodology for lineage tracing, we tracked clonal population expansions and regressions. I am very interested in genetic engineering in combination with sequencing and modeling techniques, and hope to incorporate these techniques to developing and understanding novel therapeutics.
Sandy joined the technical support team at Mirus Bio in 2019 and is responsible for working with scientists on troubleshooting and optimization of their gene delivery experiments and workflows. Before joining Mirus Bio, Sandy completed her doctoral thesis on the topic of regulation of eukaryotic gene expression at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Christian Witz has studied chemical process engineering. In his Ph.D. Witz created a novel simulation program for aerated and stirred bioreactors. He was recently named as a fellow in the Spin-Off Fellowship program of the Austrian Research Promotion Agency.
David Wood is a Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at The Ohio State University. He received his undergraduate degree from Caltech in 1990 with a double major in Chemical Engineering and Molecular Biology, and then worked on Neupogen® manufacturing at Amgen and downstream process development at Bristol Myers Squibb. Since receiving his PhD from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute over 20 years ago, professor Wood has developed groundbreaking new technologies in downstream bioprocessing with a focus on self-cleaving affinity tag methods. His work has led to several issued patents in this area, and he is now a co-founder of Protein Capture Science, a startup company commercializing his self-cleaving affinity tag technology.
