|Charles River to Present Collaborative Methods at Neuroscience 2018|
Continued Commitment to Scientific Excellence
Throughout the conference, Charles River experts will be presenting posters and hosting discussions on the latest innovations in neuroscience research, including innovative tools and applications for research on drugs targeting Huntington’s, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and other neurological disorders.
Noteworthy posters include:
During the conference, Charles River will host short tutorials in Booth #2519, covering topics that include nuclear imaging, slide histology and imaging, profiling ion channels, and the use of gene editing tools, like CRISPR, to develop research models.
Showcasing an End-to-End Approach
In collaboration with
At Neuroscience 2018, Charles River scientists will present a poster
highlighting the power of functional ultrasound (fUS) as a novel imaging
methodology. Partnering with Iconeus,
Charles River is currently the only contract research organization to
offer fUS as an alternative to traditional imaging methods. For
neuroscience research, fUS is particularly powerful, as it allows
imaging of research models while awake, allowing for a unique analysis
of changes in brain function. The poster, Functional ultrasound -
Novel in vivo imaging technique for preclinical CNS drug discovery,
will be presented on
Supporting Neurological and Rare Disease Research
Over the years, Charles River has donated to nonprofit research organizations to help advance novel drug discoveries. To continue that support at Neuroscience 2018, Charles River encourages conference attendees to take a photo at booth #2519 and post it on social media using #daretochange. Every hashtag will drive Charles River’s donation to the CureBatten foundation that is committed to finding new cures for Batten disease, a fatal rare disease that primarily impacts young children.
A full schedule of Charles River’s activities during Neuroscience 2018 is available online, and reprints of each poster are available in Booth #2519 during the conference. Additionally, experts are available for meetings with those interested in discussing neuroscience research and drug discovery. Throughout the conference, Charles River will be providing live updates on the Eureka Blog, including reviews of scientific sessions and input on the research being presented.
