BioSpectrum (India) - - PEOPLE NEWS -

Agi­lent Tech­nolo­gies Inc. an­nounced that Dr Ram Sa­sisekha­ran, has re­ceived an Agi­lent Thought Leader Award in recog­ni­tion of his con­tri­bu­tions in the field of bi­o­log­ics char­ac­ter­i­za­tion. A more ef­fi­cient de­vel­op­ment of mon­o­clonal an­ti­bod­ies (mAbs), against novel cancer tar­gets and emerg­ing pathogens is be­com­ing crit­i­cal, as the typ­i­cal time­frame to de­velop these bio­phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals from dis­cov­ery to hu­man clin­i­cal tri­als can be up to sev­eral years. This Agi­lent Thought Leader Award will help Dr Sa­sisekha­ran and his lab at the Mas­sachusetts In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy (MIT) in Bos­ton, con­tinue to evolve their rad­i­cally dif­fer­ent ap­proach that aims to shorten the de­vel­op­ment time be­tween prod­uct ‘de­sign’ to the clinic. The Sa­sisekha­ran team will fo­cus on the ad­vance­ment of an­a­lyt­i­cal tech­niques for mAb char­ac­ter­i­za­tion to ex­plore the uti­liza­tion of crit­i­cal qual­ity at­tribute mea­sure­ments, ear­lier in the clone se­lec­tion and drug de­vel­op­ment process, as a strat­egy to bring bi­o­log­ics to market faster.
