Tools to Investigate Apoptosis Markers (Part 2 of 3) Webinar

Do you know why apoptosis dysregulation is an important factor in neurodegenerative diseases and cancer?

Listen in as our scientific expert, Miriam Ferrer, Ph.D., reviews why apoptosis is a key process in ensuring normal development and tissue functionality in multicellular organisms, and discusses which assays to use for qualitative and quantitative analysis of apoptotic markers.

About the Presenter

Miriam Ferrer, Ph. D., completed her Biology Degree at the University of Barcelona (Spain) and a Ph.D. from the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam (The Netherlands). During her PhD she worked on how to use the cisplatin sensitivity of Fanconi Anaemia cells as a potential tool for cancer therapy. She further expanded her experience in the DNA repair field working on the role of BRCA1 as E3-ubiquitin ligase during her postdoc at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge (United Kingdom).

Miriam joined Abcam in 2008 as part of the Business Development team and has been Product Manager for the Cellular Assays range since July 2011.
