The Promise of Targeted Therapeutics in Cancer Treatment
May 1, 2019 -- In 2018, the International Agency for Research on Cancer reported more than 18 million people were diagnosed with cancer. Between 40 and 45 million people worldwide are living with cancer and nearly 9.6 million people die. Cancer deaths occur in about 50% of people who develop cancer in developed countries; this is in contrast to 80% death rate in cancer patients in underdeveloped countries. The numbers are staggering. But there is hope, as scientists around the globe work on developing new technologies, in the form of targeted therapies, to combat the incidence of cancer.  Discuss
Trends in Bioprocessing: Continuous Upstream Bioprocessing
April 29, 2019 -- The Science Advisory Board ® is excited to present the second piece in our trends in bioprocessing series, written by Angelo DePalma, Ph.D. This article addresses the topic of continuous manufacturing, which is being extensively explored in academia and industry as a means to increase efficiency and integrate new technologies to bioprocessing operations.
Tech Overview: X-Ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy
April 23, 2019 -- The focus of today's atomic spectroscopy series will be X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, known as XRF. XRF provides analysis of the atomic composition of samples for a wide variety of applications. The technique is particularly well suited for analyzing the elemental range from sodium to uranium, covering the majority of the metallic elements. XRF can be adjusted in order to detect lighter elements. Many samples can be effectively examined non-destructively, though others will require grinding, fusion, or some other form of sample preparation, in order to ensure that the measurement reflects the bulk properties of the sample rather than the surface.  Discuss
Extractables and Leachables in Single-Use Bioprocessing
April 21, 2019 -- At The Science Advisory Board ®, we recognize the important role that bioprocessing and drug development scientists play in the biopharmaceutical industry, and we value your input on the panel. We invited bioprocessing expert Angelo DePalma, Ph.D. to provide his opinion on the state of extractables and leachables in single-use bioprocessing.  Discuss
The Intersection of Life Scientists and Social Media: A Revolution
April 18, 2019 -- How do your peers receive information online and how do they utilize social media as a means of learning new information and sharing content? These are just a few of the questions that our colleagues at BioInformatics Inc. explored in a recent report about digital marketing to life scientists.  Discuss
Tech Overview - Organic Elemental Analysis
April 16, 2019 -- We're back again with another article in our atomic spectroscopy series! Today we are discussing organic elemental analyzers. At the Science Board we classify organic elemental analyzers as instruments specialized for the measurement of elements strongly associated with organic molecules, as well as samples typically studied within the life sciences.  Discuss
