Event Details

Thank you for your interest in the Cell-based Therapeutics Symposium. No further seats are available in the Genentech Hall Auditorium. Due to overwhelming demand we have added class capture at two UCSF locations on April 12, 2013 - Mission Bay/Byers Hall Room BH-212 and Parnassus N-225 (morning sessions) and HSW-303 (afternoon session.  If you would like to register for a seat at one of these locations, please register at:


The premise of this forward-looking symposium is that cell-based therapeutics are poised to become the next 'pillar' in medicine, where traditionally small molecules and biologics have dominated. If biologics grew out of foundational research in molecular biology and protein engineering, then cell-based therapeutics will grow out of emerging research in cellular engineering, systems and synthetic biology. We would like to engage the basic science community to think about ways to harness our increasingly deeper understanding of how cells work and apply this knowledge towards innovative therapeutic applications. The symposium will feature extended discussion sessions where participants can share their ideas, with the overall goal to outline a roadmap for the development of this pillar in medicine.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

UCSF's Mission Bay campus is easily accessible to parking, public transportation, freeway and airport connections, and conveniently close to AT&T Park, shopping, hotels and entertainment.

Mission Bay offers 1,650 mixed use (public and permit) parking spaces. Entrances are off of 16th Street at the 1625 Owens Street Garage and at the 1630 3rd Street Garage. Parking at Mission Bay is $3.50 an hour or $28 for the day.

Please visit the UCSF Campus Life Services Transportation website for more details on location, pricing,
hours of operation, and sustainable transit options: http://campuslifeservices.ucsf.edu/transportation
Header for Maps subsection reads "Directions to MBCC" but directions are provided in a different
subsection. Suggest changing header to "Map of MBCC" or similar. >> Change header to: MBCC Map
Suggest adding links to Maps and Driving Directions subsections on main "Parking & Public
Transportation" page. This will serve as another entry point to content and reduce user effort. >> Agree.
Please visit http://campuslifeservices.ucsf.edu/transportation/ for more details on location, pricing, hours of operation, UCSF shuttle schedules and sustainable transit options.



The t-third metro line picks up at the 4th and King Street Caltrain station as well as the Embarcadero BART station. the appropriate stop is the UCSF Mission Bay station on 3rd Street opposite the campus. For more information visit www.sfmta.com/cms/mroutes/tthirdsvc.htm or www.sfmuni.com


Disembark at the “16th Street Mission” BART station. From this point, pick up the red line UCSF shuttle on the north-east corner of the intersection. The shuttle runs every 15 minutes. For BART information visit www.bart.gov

UCSF Center for Systems and Synthetic Biology and ScienceTM

The UCSF Center for Systems and Synthetic Biology was funded in September 2010 as part of the NIGMS national centers for systems biology. This center serves as a nucleus at UCSF for interdisciplinary and quantitative explorations into how biological systems function. The center also serves as one node within a network of 13 national centers for systems biology. Major goals of our center are to expand the systems biology community at UCSF and, scientifically, to understand the design principles of cellular networks.

Science Translational Medicine publishes articles that fill scientific knowledge gaps at the junction of basic research and medical application, with the goal of accelerating the translation of this knowledge into new treatments for human disease (http://stm.sciencemag.org/). Cell-based therapeutics is an emerging area of particular interest to Science Translational Medicine, with applications ranging from cancer to regenerative medicine to neurodegenerative disease.
