SDCSB Autophagy in Cell Stress
Thursday, March 14, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (PDT)
with Afternoon Poster Session and Reception
Sanford Consortium Auditorium (www.sanfordconsortium.org)
2880 Torrey Pines Scenic Drive
La Jolla, CA 92037
San Diego Center for Systems Biology (SDCSB)
- Keynote Speaker: Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi
Dr. Ohsumi has been recently awarded the 2012 Kyoto Prize in Basic Sciences in the field of Life Sciences for his defining work in autophagy, a process by which living cells adapt to their environment. Dr. Ohsumi has made landmark contributions toward elucidating the molecular mechanisms and physiological significance of autophagy, a cellular adaptive system to environment. Autophagy is now regarded as a vital cell-recycling system and may aid in future developments to treat neurodegenerative maladies such as Alzheimer’s disease, cancer and other age-related ailments. Dr. Ohsumi is currently a professor at the Frontier Research Center of the Tokyo Institute of Technology, where he and his team continue their world-leading work in autophagy.
Online Registration Required. Limited Seating.
While we do not charge a fee to attend this event, these programs would not be sustainable and available to all wanting to attend, unless all registrants abide by the 72 hour cancellation notice policy.

Under the umbrella of Systems Biology, the biological and biomedical sciences are being revolutionized by unprecedented experimental tools that enable genome-wide, high throughput dynamic measurements and perturbations, and the engineering of genetic circuits, cells and tissues. Harnessing their full potential requires bioinformatic and computational modeling approaches – as such Systems Biology catalyzes the inevitable transition of Biology to a math-based, model-driven science. SDCSB aims to foster Systems Biology by bringing together scientist across disciplines and institutions to promote collaborative research and training, and the exchange of ideas and resources around Systems Biology. Founded in 2005 as the San Diego Consortium for Systems Biology, it became one of the National Centers for Systems Biology funded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) in 2010. SDCSB comprises activities in scientific research, scientific outreach, and educational outreach.
