The Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research An Overview 2018 Pathology Research Infrastructure Talk April 11, 2018 Steven J. Madore, Ph.D. ICBR Associate Director for Science UFHCC Associate Director for Core Technologies Talk Outline The ICBR an introduction and historical overview Administrative Functions & Accessing ICBR Services Technologies & Expertise the ICBR Cores Introduction

Founded in 1987 by the Florida Legislature as a research support organization to develop biotechnology resources to support the UF research community. State of Florida and UF provide funding to support administration, scientific directors and technical personnel. Main facility located in Cancer & Genetics Research Complex with satellite locations in MacKnight Brain Institute and Microbiology and Cell Sciences. Mission is to enable, strengthen and energize all aspects of molecular life science research by providing scientific and technical instrumentation and expertise. Long term aim is to jump start research for technology transfer and accelerate molecular biology research success from concept through to data that advances science. Organized under the Vice President for Research, Dr. David Norton and led by Dr. Robert Ferl. Ease of use Cost effective Impactful

Communicate Communication (especially David Moraga) - Accommodate tight schedule. Communication when working through a project. Customer service, quality of training and data Easy requesting, timing EM core Expert advice on SEM use Fast service, constant updates, quality What could the ICBR do better? Better maintenance of instruments Bring back Sanger Sequencing Communication regarding technical issues Data analysis education Easier access/location to the college of medicine

Analyzed by MS to generate spectrum Spectrum compared to databases of known peptides to identify proteins in original mixture M stands for mass and Z stands for charge number of ions. Isobaric Tags for Relative and Absolute Quantification (iTRAQ) labeling Labeling protein digests with isobaric tags allows many different biological samples to be mixed together in one analysis. Enables simultaneous identification of proteins including

relative and absolute quantitation. Low molecular weight reporter ions from the mass tags are generated by fragmentation in the mass spectrometer and their intensity is measured, the ratios of which determine the relative or absolute amount of protein in each sample Core Technologies Flow Cytometry 1.

Andria Doty, Ph.D. Scientific Director Flow Cytometry Using Fluorescently-labeled Antibodies Sorting Flow Cytometry Impact In vitro recognition of CD70 positive gliomas by human CD70 CAR T cells Cultured GBM cell lines were tested for the CD70 surface expression by FACS

CD70 overexpressed in GBM & associated with poor survival CD70 CAR T cells recognize expressing CD70 cells in vitro and induce antitumor response in pre-clinical models of GBM Targeting CD70 via CAR T immunotherapy could be employed to improve outcomes of GBM patients

Manipulation of tumor CD70 expression alters CAR T cells recognition. Human CAR T cells were cocultured with wild type GBM lines ( ) and GBM cells manipulated to overexpress CD70 ( ) or under-express CD70 via shRNA-mediated silencing ( ). Recognition was measured by IFN- release Core Technologies Gene Expression & Genotyping RNA analysis RNA qualitative/quantitative analysis qPCR and Droplet digital PCR mRNA splice variant analysis miRNA and non-coding RNA analysis RNASeq libraries
