The Front Row Lecture Series: Building new bridges to individualized medicine

Date/Time

Sep 13, 2018
04:00 PM until 06:00 PM

Description

Scripps Research has an impressive track record of identifying new drugs and biologics to improve health. Now we have embarked on a mission to link your personal genome and health measurements to your disease risk. Professor Kristin Baldwin, PhD, aims to accelerate the personalization of drug discovery by turning genomic health discoveries into "disease in a dish” models. These models include what she calls “designer” cell types that mimic what is seen in diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Her work gives scientists new tools to rapidly identify therapeutic targets and screen promising drugs. In her Front Row Lecture, Baldwin will provide an overview of this dynamic new approach to medicine and highlight recent discoveries from her lab. The event is free and open to all. Parking is free.
