Event Details

Please join us for a live feed of the one-day symposium on “Cell-Based Therapeutics: The Next Pillar of Medicine” at UCSF on Friday, April 12, 2013. 

All seats in Room BH-212 at Byers Hall, Mission Bay have been reserved.  Seats are still available at Parnassus, Room N-225.

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.

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.
