Webinar: 3D Tissue Models for Analyzing Dermatologic and Respiratory Systems
January 28, 2015
Presenter: Yukari Tokuyama, Ph.D.
Time: 12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
Additional Information:

Join us on January 28th for a special Corning-sponsored webinar presented by ATCC®.


The significance of 3D tissue modeling opens up new possibilities for the study of complex physiological processes in vitro. Advances in cell isolation, media development, substrates, and growth surfaces are leading to culture environments that provide better biological and functional properties than traditional 2D cell culture. These models may provide a more predictive analysis and result in a more streamlined process of drug discovery and development. In this webinar, we will discuss recent developments in 3D modeling using ATCC primary and hTERT immortalized cells with specialized Corning® permeable support culture systems in dermatologic and respiratory studies.


Dr. Yukari Tokuyama is a Field Application Scientist at ATCC. Prior to this role, she led the Stem Cell Product Development group and focused on products for human induced pluripotent stem cells and lineage specific differentiation. She earned her Ph.D. in Cell and Molecular Biology from the College of Medicine at the University of Cincinnati, where she studied the mechanism of genomic instability in cancer. She completed her post-doctoral training at the Oregon Health & Science University, Oregon National Primate Research Center, with a research focus on human and non-human primate stem cell biology.

Novel Cell Culture Tools for Oncology Assays and HTS

New developments with in vitro cell culture assays are providing relevant models that better represent the complexity of in vivo environments. In collaboration with ATCC, this tutorial describes the use of three dimensional multicellular spheroids, permeable supports for cell culture assays at the air liquid interface, as well as phenotypic screening using tumor cell panels with innovative technologies for oncology and high throughput screening.

Webinar: A Novel “Thaw and Go” Cell-based Model to Study SLC Transporters
February 24, 2015
Online , Presenter: Na Li
Time: 12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
Additional Information:


As a key determinant of drug pharmacokinetics, transporter mediated drug-drug interaction has garnered significant attention from the pharmaceutical industry and regulatory authorities. Corning offers a comprehensive list of tools to support drug transporter studies and recently introduced Corning® TransportoCells™ products to support in vitro assessment of drug interaction with SLC transporters. This new model provides a convenient “thaw and go” cell-based model with robust activity and consistent performance. In this webinar, we will provide an overview of Corning TransportoCells products along with applications for in vitro-to-in vivo correlation. Validation data will also be presented for the newly available TransportoCells products, including OATP1A2, OATP2B1, PEPT1, PEPT2, and NTCP.

Speaker Biography:

Dr. Na Li received her B.S degree in Biology from Fudan University, Shanghai, China, and her Ph.D. in Pharmacology from Dartmouth Medical School, Hanover, NH. Her major research focus is on drug transporters, including interspecies differences in hepatobiliary transporters, transporter quantification, and in vitro-to-in vivo extrapolation of drug pharmacokinetics. At Corning, Dr. Li contributes her expertise in in vitro drug transporter technology and its application in drug ADME.
