Q+A with Cell Biologist and Innovation Collaborator Rebecca Lim

We sat down to chat with former academic cell biologist and current biotech R&D leader Dr. Rebecca Lim about what a fruitful academia-industry partnership can look like, how to set yourself up for collaboration opportunities, and the role of risk-taking in innovation.

Democratizing High-Throughput Multiplex Analysis of Genetic Biomarkers

Custom multiplex, Luminex-based gene immunoassays helped researchers at the University of Tennessee match genetic mutations to phenotypic outcomes in early clinical SARS-CoV-2 isolates. Now, high-throughput gene expression quantitation assays will be accessible to more labs as a fully off-the-shelf product. Read more about how easily RNA and mouse probes can be combined in a multiplex assay workflow for immune biomarker research.
