Catalent Presents Case Studies in Proven Gene Expression Technology

Somerset, NJ, January 22, 2013 — Gregory T. Bleck, Ph.D., Research and Development Platform Director - Biologics for Catalent Pharma Solutions, will present “GPEx ® Cell Line Engineering Case Studies using Multiple Mammalian Cell Lines” at PepTalk 2013.

Through case study examples, attendees will gain an understanding of how GPEx Cell Line Engineering has been used to insert genes into several different mammalian cell lines for biopharmaceutical production.  The presentation will discuss the procedures completed, analysis of data, insights gained, and final conclusions that demonstrate how GPEx technology was used to generate mammalian cells with high yields and stability; helping to speed drugs to clinic.

Dr. Bleck has a broad background in Molecular Biology and gene expression with 12 year’s experience within the organization.  Dr. Bleck holds a Doctorate in Endocrinology-Reproductive Physiology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He performed postdoctoral work at the University of Illinois-Urbana working in the areas of gene regulation and protein expression. Dr. Bleck has published more than 55 research papers and co-authored chapters in three books.

PepTalk 2013 – The Protein Science Week, will be held in Palm Springs, CA from January 21-25, 2013. Dr Bleck’s presentation will take place on January 25 within ‘pipeline 4’ of the conference in a segment entitled “Choosing, Designing and Optimizing Hosts and Platforms.”  The conference is divided into pipelines with a focus on formulation, purification, biotherapeutics, expression and packaging.  For more information on this event, please visit:
