Nigel Harrison is a performance consultant with over 30 years' experience in helping organisations to set up internal consulting groups using workshops, coaching and problem solving. You can download and install apps and games directly from Android Market using an Android phone or by using WebConnect mobile application. We'll have different games and activities designed for you to meet dozens of people there in a friendly & flirty way. We examine increasing cases of diabetes and how finding the "secret sauce" for beta cells might fight this trend. Recent studies have reported a link between Herpes Simplex Virus 1 (HSV-1) and increased AD risk. This blog will cover the major apps provided by BioLegend relevant to research steps from conceptualization to discovery, as well as a few useful apps not from BioLegend. Look back at this year’s most popular posts and find out which blogs our writers enjoyed composing. Our latest podcast invites guest Pascal Gagneux to discuss his thoughts on glycans, evolution, and sex cells! Learn what makes this virus dangerous and why some countries are advising women to avoid pregnancy. Although respiration is considered the more efficient pathway because it has more ATP output per molecule of pyruvate, rapidly-dividing cells sometimes choose fermentation instead. Almost 50 BioLegend employees took part is this fun race which supports awareness for local charities trying to bring about positive change in San Diego.
By controlling key molecules involved in regulating the immune response, researchers have obtained very promising results in the treatment of certain cancers.
Read this blog to learn more about Mazumdar-Shaw’s humble beginnings and how she built her empire by literally starting in her garage. Scientists would like to reanimate this virus to learn more about its origins and the evolution of giant viruses. We also cover recent research linking high-fat diets with a change in the gut microbiome and obesity-linked inflammation, as well as the role that leptin plays in the rewarding effects of exercise. Immunotherapy is a groundbreaking option because it can hypothetically target cancer cells specifically while leaving healthy cells intact, which can decrease the number of adverse effects associated with current treatment options.
Some may notice a modest decline in their mental abilities, including memory function, while some may develop neurodegenerative diseases as they age.
Tune in to hear our guest Mohar Chattopadhyay discuss its symptoms, treatments, and research.
Using bioinformatics methods, they reconstructed the evolutionary tree of AAV and made viruses that represent different branching points.
Resistance to anti-microbial drugs occurs naturally, however, the misuse of these drugs, among other factors, is helping the spread of multidrug resistant microbes. However, communication between the CNS and the periphery occurs through unknown mechanisms. The cause of this disease is unknown, and although there is presently no cure, there are some treatment options such as medication and surgery to manage its symptoms. Learn more about neuroinflammation and the newly discovered central nervous system lymphatic system with our special guest, Kenya Cohane. They are highly similar to peripheral macrophages and respond to pathogens and injury by becoming activated. But, how does this peer review work and why have so many controversies sprung up recently about this system?
The Neuroinflammation page shows how neuronal injury can lead to immune infiltration, and how differential activation of microglia can be either neuroprotective or neurotoxic. This versatile system can accommodate your experimental needs, whether you are doing positive or negative selection.


In cancer, it may be beneficial to prevent interaction of "immune checkpoints", which can inactivate T cells. This time we contribute to science enrichment classes in elementary schools throughout San Diego. In this blog, we discuss the potential impact of sequencing or genotyping individuals and why the FDA temporarily shutdown one company for marketing their kit as a medical device.
Quite often, they manage to subvert a highly evolved immune system and proliferate inside a host.
It allows researchers to listen to important talks, collaborate, and see what companies have to offer. Researchers are now repurposing this for useful applications in like increasing crop size and treating diseases like HIV and cancer. With open source sharing of 3D models, anyone with access to a 3D printer can print tube racks, 96 well plates, gel combs, and many other things. We also take a look at some of the inner workings of the brain including synchronization, implanting false memories, and how it blocks distractions. In this blog, we discuss one of the biggest scientific scandals in recent memory: The publication of high-profile stem cell papers in one of the most reputable journals that was riddled with errors, and, in at least a couple of spots, obvious data manipulation. Depending on the requirements of your assays, as well as your equipment at hand, you may need to use a colorimetric assay. This blog discusses the implications of red meat consumption in humans and the characterization Neu5Gc as a xeno-autoantigen capable of inducing low level inflammation leading to cancer. These are called plantibodies, and in fact, there are already companies developing therapeutic antibodies using them. There we showcased some of our newly released products, such as LEGENDplex and newly aquired NeoClone antibodies. Our blog examines possible causes, treatments, and mechanisms of action for food allergens.

Here is a post to show some of the cool costumes and pumpkin carving contest we had this year. Nanobodies®, a tenth of the size of a normal antibody, have multiple advantages over conventional antibodies.
It shows how they must modernise their learning strategies if they want to achieve the same business benefits as top learning organisations. At the CLC Members' Seminar on 17 March 2016, we were inspired by his thoughts on how to improve performance consulting skills.
Clive has been a long-standing supporter of Towards Maturity providing independent insights that have ensured our reseach continues to evolve. This mixer is a fun way to connect and one of the friendliest and most social events you will experience!
There will be age specific matching games but you will also have a chance to match outside of your age range. And, we talk about Sean Parker's new $250 million grant to establish the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy. In this blog, we discuss a landmark case study, and human trial, in which gene editing was successfully used in the treatment of leukemia.
As hard as it is to secure funding, prioritizing how to stay within the lab’s budget is an equally daunting task. The use of monoclonal antibodies against some of these molecules, called immune checkpoint receptors, have provided some answers and hope in the search for a cure. Tune in to hear our discussion on the release of an open-access journal that will publish ideas as well as data and results, and other exciting research on influenza infection. In this blog, read about adoptive cell transfer, the process of training and expanding a patient's own immune cells and placing it back into the patient to fight the cancer with their own cells. Scientists are increasingly interested to understand the factors and mechanisms that may impact brain health.
These viruses were used to circumvent detection by the immune system to successfully deliver genes to various mammalian tissues. This is a serious public health issue at the moment, and if we don’t act with energy, there can be hard consequences.
In this blog, we discuss a recent paper published in Nature that discovered that the CNS does, in fact, have a lymphatic system that can be used to communicate with immune cells in the periphery. Read our blog to learn more about Selman Waksman, his work in antibiotics, and the controversy over streptomycin.
Read our blog to learn more about the correlation between the flu vaccine and narcolepsy, and the evidence to support or refute the hypothesis. Read our blog to learn about the work being done to uncover how bacteria can influence the mental state. This blog discusses the blood-brain barrier, which can be compromised under certain conditions, leading to immune cell infiltration and chronic neuroinflammation. As part of their response, they secrete cytokines and chemokines, which help in the resolution of the inflammatory response.
The page also features IHC reagents for detection of neuroinflammation and a list of our neuroinflammation products.
Learn more with our podcast about some of the more popular antibody and nanobody treatments.
Read about BioLegend at IMMUNOLOGY 2015™ in this blog, and we’re excited for next year's AAI Annual Meeting! Check out our blog to learn how Joseph Lister turned it all around and why he is now known as "the father of modern surgery". In this post, we comment on the number of mechanisms that HIV, a retrovirus, has to escape the immune system. Learn about BioLegend's involvement in scholarships, talks, and interesting facts about this year's host city, New Orleans. There's a battle brewing over the CRISPR patents with millions in funds (and profit) at stake. This allows for on-the-fly access to lab goods, and also nearly infinite customizability for lab supplies in your experiments. The fallout after the retraction of these papers just goes to show that scientific misconduct is not worth the risk. Luckily, our immune system has also “learned” how to deal with most of these pathogens, so we can eliminate most of these infections. Read through our blog to learn more about the logistics of picking out the right animal for you.
Unfortunately, they also have their limitations and more research will be needed before their utility is completely known. Our podcast with post-doc Francesca Soncin examines what you can expect.Too many post-docs in the pipeline? We hope that our contribution will help shape an environment where real-world research informs organisational improvement.
Although your ideas may be compelling, it's not easy to execute a plan without support, co-operation and collaboration from peers, stakeholders and business leaders. Furthermore, of the 86% who want to facilitate continuous learning, only 11% report that this is actually happening. Aimee Young writes about how learning leaders can challenge the 'quick fix' syndrome when being asked to come up with business solutions. We wholeheartedly endorse the challenges he is making to the industry and establishing a professional attitude is an essential element of equipping our teams for change' I have been lucky in my job to spend time with many hundreds of learning and development practitioners over the past ten years or so, in all sectors of the economy and in all parts of the world. Read this blog to get an idea about how much it costs to run an academic research lab in the U.S.
BioLegend develops and manufactures world-class, cutting-edge immunological reagents for biomedical research, offered at an outstanding value. If you're able to score a perfect 100%, you'll win a goodie bag filled with BioLegend prizes. But these cells are also known for their harmful roles in neurodegenerative diseases and brain injuries, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
In this post, we comment on a number of mechanisms that Salmonella has to escape the immune system. In this post, we comment on a number of mechanisms that Listeria has to escape the immune system. Given that 67% of organisations do offer mobile learning in some form, it is clear that current mobile strategies are not delivering the desired impact.The current focus for most organisations, is to ensure that existing content is made available on mobile devices.
Almost without exception I find them to be enthusiastic, friendly and determined to do the best possible job.


Time and again, L&D as an industry is failing to see the organisational impact of its activities and we have now reached a crunch point.
Just as consistently, it is apparent that they experience a major obstacle to achieving their goals and providing the best possible service to their organisations. I have had the pleasure of working with them and their customers for a number of years and have seen first hand their commitment to identifying and sharing great practices that really work. The majority of mid-sized businesses are also failing to embrace informal learning, realising the power of social media for enabling learners to collaborate and solve problems together, despite 64% of L&D professionals in the sample saying their appeal to the millennial learner is a key driver for their use of learning technologies. In their interactions with key stakeholders they are not afforded the respect upon which their credibility as true professionals depends.
For example, 84% are using their mobile learning strategy to help people locate in-house experts when they need them (versus 38% on average), with 66% improving the ability to communicate in real time (versus 32%).
Clients come to us to discuss the course and not the problem, with a conspiracy of convenience resulting in a reluctance to challenge the ‘quick fix' approach.
They are simply not trusted as they should be to apply their technical expertise in solving problems that in practice are beyond the reach of the lay person.
It leverages the data of its in-depth Benchmark Study, the largest learning technology benchmark in Europe. These tactics are having a range of significant benefits for Top Deck organisations, including:82% have improved the quality of learning experience (vs. Nigel identifies this as ‘solutioneering' - the process by which clients will jump to solutions without identifying the problem. These are tried and tested approaches that we've used in partnership with our clients to produce effective and award-winning learning interventions that deliver impactful change.1. L&D often find themselves in the difficult position of being 'stuck in the middle' between wanting to fix problems and needing to provide quick solutions. What would you do?Your internal client, a long-serving, senior manager, calls you in for a meeting. When it comes to supporting a great learning experience, what can these individuals teach us?The full report highlights areas where L&D professionals are potentially out of sync with how workers learn.
Legislation and government promotion of these practices along with a change in demographics are ensuring they blossom but what solutions exist for ensuring all employees are engaged in the learning strategy?
If everyone is happy in their learning bubbles, with L&D rolling out courses, learners completing courses and boxes being ticked, then why challenge and change the way we do things? He is looking for a training programme to ease the upcoming transition from Microsoft Office to Google Apps.
He suggests a suite of e-learning modules to cover each of the apps in the suite, along with an option of classroom training for those who still prefer this approach. Contact 0208 542 2331 if you would like to book a conference call.About Towards MaturityTowards Maturity is a benchmarking research company that provides independent expert advice and support to help organisations use learning technologies to accelerate business performance. Now is the time to be investing in new learning technologies and systems that today’s tech-savvy, self-driven learners need and want.
Work with the subject matter expert or the business customer to identify the main objective of the programme. This will not only help you design the programme, but will also help you measure its effectiveness. If we jump to the solution without understanding the problem, then the process will eventually have to start again because the problem was never solved.
What it means to be a professional To be a professional means a lot more than simply doing whatever the client wants. Redware has successfully developed and delivered a sector-leading Learning Management Solution to an extensive portfolio of clients.Redware has enabled global brands and businesses to exceed their training and development expectations, by enabling formal and informal learning to be joined, bringing talent to life. We need to start taking a performance consulting approach, identifying the defined business benefits of learning innovation and establishing the measureable value to the organisation. It provides learners with the same environment they expect outside of work - multi-channel, device and media - to help them achieve their learning goals.Redware prides themselves on delivering a personal and transparent service at every stage of the process. You'd like a six-hour e-learning package to train customer service staff to sell over the telephone?
Our research shows that on average, only 55% of L&D teams are currently analysing business problems before recommending solutions. A two-day workshop to teach every detail of a new company system to all employees, regardless of whether or not they will be using it? We as L&D have to show the value of learning by establishing how we can link this back to business objectives and working closely with leaders, to ensure a link between the learning and why we're doing it.
That's what we're here for, to meet your requirements.Hang on a minute, you're probably thinking. This isn't an encounter between a professional and a client, it's simply order taking.When asked to jump, a professional does not ask 'how high?'. Their clients include some of the world’s best-known brands like Boots, O2, Transport for London and Eurostar, to help achieve business transformation and drive long-term performance success.
Reinvent the InterventionIn the ‘Aim for Action' step you established a reason for implementing your learning programme. If it was then experts wouldn't lecture at novices for hours on end; they wouldn't insist on passing on everything they know, however irrelevant, however incomprehensible.
That's why we have learning professionals, so they can explain, in terms that the lay person can clearly understand, how people acquire knowledge, develop skills and adapt to new ideas, and how best to support this process. Will that raise awareness, instil attitudes and change actions?One way to fuel creativity for your blended learning project is to ask, "How would an advertising executive tackle this problem of awareness, attitude or action? Once trust has been established with the client, we can then begin to ask more direct questions that help us identify the real problem and come up with solutions that demonstrate value. How would they get people to change?" Advertising agencies live or die by their ability to drive behaviour change. Their patients' interests take priority over those of any body which employs them or their own opportunities to make financial gains. Get the client to admit to you the problems they are facing, identify what their challenges are and help them see what the solutions look like Map out who is involved with the problem without solving it.
Now we all know that, in practice, some doctors, lawyers, bankers, accountants and other professionals do break this trust and put themselves first, but generally we are shocked when this happens and expect the transgression to be dealt with firmly.As those responsible for managing the learning of adults in the workplace, we also like to be regarded as professionals. Clients find it difficult to illustrate complex problems in a linear way, so support your approach by drawing a picture of the people involved, and where they fit within the problem. Every time you develop or deliver content without question as to its efficacy you are doing the same. Why not make use of the employee newsletter, write a speech for the CEO, prepare cascade toolkits for managers or shoot a video for the Intranet?Now that you have a list of the possible channels for reaching your audiences, take some time to think about your different audiences. For each unique audience group, consider how you want to change awareness, attitude or action. Now consider what the best method is for affecting this change.In the final step, you'll need to organise the mix into a co-ordinated campaign. How could they function without keeping up-to-date with the latest building techniques, legislation, materials, and developments in electrics, plumbing and lighting? Campaign for Change When delivering positive, lasting change there are no ‘silver bullets'.
They would soon be unable to provide an adequate service and would rightly ushered out of the profession.The idea of a technophobic architect or dentist seems ridiculous, and yet with learning professionals it is somehow the norm.
And yet it takes as long to become an effective learning consultant, designer or facilitator as it does to become a skilled professional or craftsperson in other fields.
If your organisation wants to meet the aim, you'll need to campaign for change!A campaign is a set of interlocking, co-ordinated activities using different media and different channels to achieve a shared objective.If your aim is important, it's time to take the fresh interventions you listed and put together a time-phased and audience-specific campaign.
Gap analysis: it's time to face up to the problem One we have established trust and rapport, we can then challenge the client and get them to start thinking about the real problem. Doing the best for my client will often mean suggesting a solution other than the one requested.
They use multiple channels over a period of time to change your awareness, attitude and activity. As you plan your time-phased, audience-specific communications, start with your aim and work from there. If your organisation wants to meet the aim, you'll need to campaign for change!Think about how you can design your communication plan.
If you want to continue to focus on equipping your L&D team then it is time for action.
Tweak one or two elements or add an extra ingredient into the mix.Finally, communicate your results within the business.
