Speaker Bio:

Andrew Bradbury has been a technical staff member at Los Alamos National Lab since July 1999. He has worked in the field of phage display and antibody engineering for 15 years, and has helped organize over 30 international congresses and practical courses in this field, both in Europe and the US. He has published over 80 peer-reviewed articles, including a number of reviews and commentaries on phage display and antibody engineering, and he has 12 filed patents/invention disclosures. He is one of the founder members of “The Antibody Society”, and is on the editorial board of three journals. Dr. Bradbury's research is funded in part by the New Mexico Spatiotemporal Modeling Center, one of the NIGMS-funded National Centers for Systems Biology.

The theme for the Fall 2014 program of the Coast to Coast Seminar Series is “Deep Sequencing Antibody and T-cell Receptor Repertoires for the Study of Infectious and Autoimmune Disease, and Development of Vaccines and Therapeutics”. The sessions will examine an immediate and pressing “Big Data” problem faced by researchers examining the immune response to infectious and autoimmune diseases, and those developing vaccines and therapeutic antibodies.

The series is partly motivated by a specific middleware prototype that The IRMACS Centre is developing called iReceptor, supported by CANARIE. More importantly, the proposed series will be an important opportunity to help integrate the Canadian and greater international community that is grappling with this Big Data problem, and who will be participating in a series of “Workshops on Analysis, Storage and Sharing of Next-Generation Sequence Data from B-cell Receptor/Antibody and T-cell Receptor Repertoires” to be held May 29-June 1, 2015 in Vancouver.
