There is an exciting and diverse range of new talks released to The Biomedical & Life Sciences Collection this month, including a talk on the engineering of reciprocal chromosomal translocations to control the fate of populations, mitochondria in reproduction and fertility, an update on systemic sclerosis, HPV vaccines in the prevention of cervical cancer, and much more.
Also in this month's release is a talk on current challenges in the design of antibody-drug conjugates by Prof. L. Nathan Tumey, Binghamton University School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Science. With over 15 years of experience in both commercial and academic settings, including as a team leader at Pfizer, Prof. Tumey discusses methods for minimizing the toxicity and improving the potency of antibody-drug conjugates. The talk is the latest release in the series 'Periodic Reports: Advances in Clinical Interventions and Research Platforms'.
The complete list of new talks is available below my signature and I invite you to share it with your colleagues.
Finally, our editorial team extends its heartiest congratulations to two of our early contributors to the collection, Professor James Allison and Professor Sir Gregory Winter, on receiving the 2018 Nobel Prizes, respectively, in Medicine and in Chemistry.
