Cambridge Neuroscience Technical Lecture in association with Life Technologies: Oct 16th at 4.30pm

What: Cambridge Neuroscience Technical Lecture in association with Life Technologies “Neuroscience models: tips and tricks for stem cell differentiation to cells of neural lineage downstream analysis  through protein analysis and quantification.” The Lecture will be followed by a drinks reception.

Who: David Bourdon PhD

When: October 16th 2012, 16:30-17:30 followed by a drinks reception

Where: Lecture Theatre, Department of Pharmacology

Registration: Click here to register for FREE.

Background to the talk: Following on from the success of its first technical lecture in association with Life Technologies, Cambridge Neuroscience welcomes Dr David Bourdon to Cambridge. The lecture will look at neuroscience models (Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease) and focus on tips and tricks for stem cell culture, engineering and differentiation to cells of neural lineage and the downstream analysis through imaging/flow cytometry & protein analysis and quantification.

David's background: David’s Ph.D. and postdoctoral work focused on the study of G protein coupled receptor pharmacology and thrombosis. Following his academic training, he led Luminex multiplexing automation efforts at PerkinElmer. Joining Life Technologies in 2009, David is an R&D Staff Scientist in Carlsbad, California, where he and his team developed the ProtoPlex™ Immune Response Assay platform. David is a vocal advocate of utilizing Novex multiplexed immunoassay tools to measure both halves of the proteome (antigens & autoantibodies) with xMAP technology. Along with collaborators at the University of California - San Diego, David is utilizing the combined power of Novex multiplexed cytokine panels as well as the newly developed Novex ProtoPlex platform to perform immune profiling with the goal of identifying autoantibody biomarkers in high profile autoimmune and viral diseases. David welcomes discussions and can be reached at

David will be in Cambridge for the entire day so please do not hesitate to get in touch with him to arrange a meeting.
