ApoE4 and the Insulin Receptor — It's a Trap!


Posted by Richard C on Aug 1, 2018 3:15:00 AM

You might be surprised to learn that diabetes, a metabolic disease, may be linked to the neurodegenerative condition Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Diabetes is driven by altered insulin signaling from either insufficient insulin production (Type 1) or altered insulin receptor (IR) signaling (Type 2). In a seemingly unrelated disease, the human e4 allele of APOE is the strongest genetic risk factor for AD.

Signaling Is Like Wiring


Posted by Glen M on Jul 18, 2018 3:10:00 AM

I’d once heard a great analogy for the pursuit of knowledge: it’s akin to finding yourself in a pitch-black room. As you explore the contents of the room, finding objects and obstacles new to you, you happen upon not just a single doorknob, but many. Some are locked, others feel as though they might budge open given extreme effort, but one turns easily allowing you exit from the room. You come to realize that you were merely in one of countless rooms, halls, and corridors, all of which warrant exploration and understanding.

Mastering Phospho-Flow: Immune Cell Activation Webinar


Posted by Chris S on Jul 11, 2018 3:15:00 AM

To characterize activation of immune cells, measurement of intracellular signaling using phospho-specific antibodies combined with immune phenotyping using surface markers is ideal. Owing to the unique capability of flow cytometry to measure events at a single-cell level, “Phospho Flow” allows for the identification of rare signaling events during processes such as co-stimulatory signaling and manipulation of checkpoint inhibition. However, combining extracellular and intracellular antibodies in a flow protocol can present technical challenges.

Painless Publication: How to Write a Conference Abstract


Posted by Chris S on Jun 27, 2018 3:15:00 AM

Our previous blog post, “Painless Publication: How to Write a Journal Abstract,” walked you through the steps in writing the abstract for a journal article. Now we turn our focus to writing abstracts for conference proceedings. Although there are some similarities between these two types of abstracts, there are also some distinct considerations and approaches for conference abstracts.

Earth Month: Conserving Everything but Enthusiasm


Posted by Elias W on May 30, 2018 3:15:00 AM

Last year we organized a week’s worth of events for Earth Week, culminating with the international “March for Science” where over 50 US employees attended a march and rally in Boston, MA. Wanting to advance our employee engagement on environmental action, this year we opted for an Earth Month with weekly workplace events, lectures, and volunteer opportunities.
