Indiana CTSI ATP seminar series: “An introduction to home-brew library prep methods for Illumina sequencing and critical factors to ensure success: ChIP-Seq, ATAC-Seq, Hi-C, and CRISPR screening”
May 14 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) Access Technology Program is starting a new technology-based seminar series. The purpose of this seminar series is to inform investigators how existing or new technologies offered by the core facilities at Indiana University, IUPUI, Purdue University, and University of Notre Dame could be useful in advancing their research.

The topic for the seminar on Friday, May 14 is, “An introduction to home-brew library prep methods for Illumina sequencing and critical factors to ensure success: ChIP-Seq, ATAC-Seq, Hi-C, and CRISPR screening.” This event features the following service cores: Indiana University Center of Genomics & Bioinformatics, Indiana University School of Medicine Center for Medical Genomics, Notre Dame Genomics & Bioinformatics Core Facility, and Purdue University Bindley Core for Genomics.

In this webinar we will discuss popular applications that utilize home-brew library preps with Illumina Sequencing as a downstream readout. This will include an overview of epigenetic methods designed to look at regions of open chromatin (ATAC-Seq), binding sites of DNA-associated proteins (ChIP-Seq/Cut and Run), and detection of long-range DNA interactions (Hi-C). Additionally, we will look at how Illumina Sequencing can be used as an effective strategy in genome wide CRISPR screens for quantification of sgRNAs as well as methods that allow the detection of transcriptional changes observed in the enriched or depletion knockout populations.

Registration information is available here. 

The seminars will be on the 2nd and 4th Fridays from noon to 1 pm, continuing through May.

Indiana CTSI ATP seminar series: Positron Emission Tomography (PET) for Molecular Imaging
May 28 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) Access Technology Program is starting a new technology-based seminar series. The purpose of this seminar series is to inform investigators how existing or new technologies offered by the core facilities at Indiana University, IUPUI, Purdue University, and University of Notre Dame could be useful in advancing their research.

The topic for the seminar on Friday, May 28 is “Positron Emission Tomography (PET) for Molecular Imaging,” led by Todd Sasser, PhD, Head of PCI Applications, Americas, Bruker BioSpin. The featured core facility is Roberts Translational Imaging Facility, Yu-Chien Wu, MD, PhD, DABMP, Director, IU School of Medicine.

The Bruker 9.4T magnetic resonance (MR) scanner delivers in-vivo/ex-vivo images with high spatial and temporal resolution. Parallel with any MRI method on this machine, the compatible PET insert offers high resolution, high sensitivity, and high quantification accuracy, allowing for simultaneous PET/MR imaging in basic research and translational medicine. Applications in multiple fields are available with these advanced preclinical imaging solutions, including, but not limited to: oncology, neurology, cardiology, inflammation, functional and anatomical neuroimaging, orthopedics, cardiac imaging, and stroke models.

Registration information is available here. 

The seminars will be on the 2nd and 4th Fridays from noon to 1 pm, continuing through May.

For questions or to be added to a mailing list for seminar announcements, email Jill Reiter, PhD, Director, Indiana CTSI Access Technology Program.

Indiana CTSI/IU School of Medicine Regional Campus Retreat
Jul 16 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) and IU School of Medicine is hosting its first Regional Campus Retreat virtually on Friday, July 16 from 9 am – 3 pm ET / 8 am – 2 pm CT.

The theme is, “Building Collaborations in Health.”

A tentative agenda will be shared here in the future.

Retreat organizers are currently looking for research and clinical faculty to present at the retreat, specifically if it involves any one of the following:

  • Is in one of the statewide coalition’s themes: asthma, obesity, cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular health, or environmental health (including but not limited to heavy metals)
  • Any research that has involved building collaborations with other Indiana CTSI schools (Notre Dame, IUPUI, Purdue), community partners, state or local government, or private industry
  • Projects that involve translational medicine

Abstracts are due by Wednesday, June 16. Presentations will be approximately 15 minutes long via Zoom.

Register and submit abstracts here.

Contact Evansville Navigator Kara Garcia (karagarc@iu.edu) or Terre Haute Navigator Ellen Ireland (eireland@iu.edu) with questions.
