The Future of Glioblastoma Research: Developing Clinically Relevant Models for Evaluating Novel Therapies

Life Sciences, Drug Discovery & Development, Preclinical,
  • Wednesday, September 14, 2022 | 2pm EDT (1pm CDT / 11am PDT)
  • 60 min

The blood-brain barrier (BBB) is a critical obstacle to developing brain-penetrant therapies for glioblastoma research and treatment. Orthotopic intracranial glioblastoma models (orthotopic means “the correct place”) are a next-generation platform that provide accurate preclinical data to inform lead candidate progression into the clinic.

During this webinar, the featured speaker will reveal innovations in glioblastoma model development and the future of glioblastoma research, diving into critical issues affecting glioblastoma drug development and how to overcome them. Attendees will review an in-depth case study on in vivo and in vitro strategies to model glioblastoma via 3D spheroid and orthotopic intracranial patient-derived xenograft (PDX) models. The speaker will also discuss the importance of selecting clinically relevant glioblastoma models that closely recapitulate human glioblastoma as well as specialized intracranial engraftment and dosing techniques.

Join this webinar to learn about the future of glioblastoma research and how to overcome challenges with glioblastoma drug development.
