Advanced Drug-resistant Cell Models for Cancer Therapeutic Resistance Studies
Despite an increase in the number of novel anti-cancer drugs, the persistence of drug resistance remains a major challenge in cancer research. Cell-based models are critical tools for understanding the mechanisms of drug resistance and developing novel therapeutics. This workshop will highlight how state-of-the-art ATCC drug-resistant cancer cell models created by CRISPR gene editing technology can facilitate the discovery of new types of therapeutics that overcomes drug resistance. In addition, cell models for combination therapy studies will be discussed in this session.
