At Fluxion, we’re passionate about delivering cell-based and cell-free solutions that facilitate the transformation of research discoveries into new ways to diagnose and treat patients. By characterizing molecular and cellular mechanisms of disease, Fluxion’s platforms help bridge the translational medicine gap, enabling rapid advances in disease research, drug discovery, and the development of diagnostic tests.
Eric Wang PhD, University of Florida, Center for Neurogenetics
Abstract: Eric received his PhD from Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology, mentors Christopher Burge and David Housman. Eric has published key work characterizing the use of deep sequencing technologies to study RNA species across the entire transcriptome, and found that over 95% of human multi-exonic genes are alternatively spliced, the majority in a tissue-regulated manner. In 2013, Eric received an NIH Director’s Early Independence Award, which allowed him to launch his lab at MIT. In 2015, he moved his lab to the Center for NeuroGenetics. In this webinar, Eric will discuss GABA receptor-expressing cell lines from his lab and will focus on electrophysiological and immunofluorescent detection of the different subunits.
