  • Dr. Mark Dürkop
    CEO Novasign GmbH, Project Lead BOKU - Department of Biotechnology, University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna
    Biography
      With more than 10 years of experience, Mark is a passionate expert in the field of biopharmaceutical process development. He worked together with several Top25 Pharma companies in different projects targeting their needs in process development and understanding. Together with his team, he is developing a hybrid modeling software for both up and downstream processes. This software utilizes AI applied to process data and first principle models (hybrid models) to quickly predict critical quality attributes (CQAs) from critical process parameters (CPPs). Hereby, bioprocess development and characterization are accelerated significantly while simultaneously a better process understanding is gathered. From this research project, the company Novasign was founded in 2019 offering this unique software solution.

        • Patricia McNeill
          Associate Director, Culture Development Seattle Cell Culture Development, Lundbeck Seattle BioPharmaceuticals, Inc
          Biography

            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.

          • Isaac Shamie
            PhD Candidate, Bioinformatics & Systems Biology, University of California, San Diego
            Biography

              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.
