Chemoresponse Profiling Using 3D Primary Tumor Models
Closing Keynote for Building Biology in 3D Symposium
Timothy Spicer, Ph.D.
Co-Director, Scripps Molecular Screening Center
Tim Spicer joined Scripps early on at its onset in Jupiter Florida and has been working there for 10 years. Prior to that he was employed at Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. for nine years as a Research Scientist in the Department of Lead Discovery and Profiling, Discovery Technologies and Infectious Diseases. Tim received an MS in microbiology at the SUNY Health Science Center at Syracuse. He has authored 75 publications and 4 patents. Tim works across multiple organizations and currently co-directs the Scripps Molecular Screening Center. He leads a team that implements assays and supports screening on fully automated platforms. He has experience developing anti-microbial, GPCR, kinase, protease, nuclear receptor, and/or ion channel assays in a variety of HTS-compatible formats (reporter-gene, TR-FRET, HTRF, fluorescence, luminescence, and absorbance). He is recognized at Scripps and by collaborators as a leader in evaluating new assay technologies for the purpose of making UHTS the standard.
