Webinar: Extracellular vesicles; their roles and potential utility in cancer

Prof Aled Clayton (Tissue Microenvironment Group (TMEG), Cardiff University) reviews how EVs play a crucial role in cancer and have potential therapeutic and diagnostic utility. Published: March 2019


Webinar: Extracellular vesicles as a minimally invasive diagnostic source and active metabolic machines

Prof Juan Manuel Falcon-Perez (CIC BioGUNE, Spain) speaks about using EV cargo as a source to elucidate non-invasive biomarkers, putting special emphasis on approaches that could accelerate translation of EV research into the clinic. EVs contain active enzymes that modify their environment and influence different pathophysiological processes. Published: July 2019

Webinar: Innovation in 3D cell culture: creating a customizable microenvironment to replicate in vivo properties of tissues

Dr Natasha Lewis (Cell Guidance Systems, UK) and Dr Dammy Olayanju (Manchester BIOGEL, UK) discuss how current 3D cell culture models are hindered by the inability of the cellular microenvironment to fully provide the molecular cues that contribute to the fully developed cellular phenotype in vivo. Presenting a novel apporach, PODS-PeptiGels, to overcome these limitations by offering a physiologically-relevant microenvironment. Published: May 2022


Webinar: PODS: Advanced Technology to Stabilize Proteins for In-Vivo Delivery

Dr Michael Jones (Cell Guidance Systems, CEO) discusses the challenges of working with proteins in-vivo and how PODS technology addresses this problem, by capturing fully folded protiens within microscopic protein crystals to provide a robust sustained release depot formulation. Concrete applications of PODS crystals, from implanted cell survival to cancer immunotherapy are discussed. Published: March 2023


 PeptiGel® Synthetic Peptide Hydrogels

Webinar: How to Successfully Make the Switch to Synthetic Peptide Hydrogels

Professor Aline Miller (University of Manchester) and Sebastian Doherty-Boyd (University of Glasgow) discuss the difficulties in producing consistent cell culture results using traditional biomaterials, particularly animal-derived matrices with their inherent variability. They also discuss how to gain greater control over 2D and 3D cell culture with PeptiGels and cover specific examples of using PeptiGels to generate 3D tissue and disease models. Published: September 2023



Webinar: Karyotyping iPSCs for chromosomal abnormalities

Cell Guidance Systems’ Cytogenetics team give an overview of the technique of karyotyping and principles used to determine chromosomal patterns and therefore the genetic stability of the cells. They also describe the types of abnormalities that are routinely observed, explain which abnormalities are known to affect cell behaviour, and outline the current recommendations for quality assurance of genetic stability in iPSCs.
