Precision Cell Culture
Remarkable minds need exceptional tools to truly mimic physiology
Understanding the benefits on creating ideal growth environments are creating exciting innovations in how cell culture work is performed. New workflows are attempting to create stable and continuous conditions for optimal growth. This creates less stress on cells and optimizes their growth potential.
Meet Dr. Held
Real world expertise. Virtual laboratory host.
Kara Held, Ph.D. brings an extensive knowledge of cell biology to The Baker Company. Prior to her coming on board, she was a Lab Manager, Safety Officer, and Researcher at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute working with iPS cell-derived motor neurons. She earned her Ph.D. at the University of Vermont and completed postdoctoral training at Yale University studying blood vessel regulation. The Dr. Held virtual avatar will greet you on entrance the virtual lab and be on hand to help introduce you to Baker’s cell culture solutions.
