KGI’s International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE) Club will be hosting an industry talk on Monday, January 25 from 12:00-1:00 p.m. with Dr. Shahram Misaghi.
Misaghi is a Principal Scientist and group leader at the Cell Culture and Bioprocess Operations (CCBO) department at Genentech. He joined the CCBO department in 2010, after completing his postdoctoral work at Genentech in the Physiological Chemistry department under supervision of Dr. Vishva Dixit. His team studies Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells behavior in culture at molecular and cellular levels, aiming to identify and utilize key proteins and signaling pathways that can potentially increase protein expression or culture growth. His team regularly use biochemical and genetic tools to study and advance their understanding of CHO protein expression platforms. His team is also involved in the generation of stable cell lines expressing bio-therapeutics (proteins and antibodies) that support Phase-I to Phase-III and commercial drug manufacturing stages. Join us to learn more about Genentech and Misaghi’s work behind the development of therapeutic proteins.
