The Southern California Stem Cell Seminar Series
UC San Diego Stem Cell Program, presents Southern California Stem Cell Colloquia.
Stem Cells to the Rescue: Saving the Northern White Rhino from Extinction
10/29/2019
There are only two Northern White Rhinos left on the planet. How can we reverse extinction to save them and use the lessons learned to help other endangered species? Marisa L. Korody, PhD of the San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research shares how scientists are using the latest in stem cell technology for a genetic rescue.
How to Make a Neuron and How Pioneer Factors May Find Their Targets
10/7/2019
Marius Wernig, MD, PhD, discusses how his lab has worked to convert non-neuronal cell types (lymphocytes, pluripotent stem cells, fibroblasts, hepatocytes, lymphocytes) to neurons. The lab is now working on identifying the molecular mechanisms underlying induced lineage fate changes, the phenotypic consequences of disease-causing mutations in human neurons and other neural lineages.
Mouse and Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Models of Autism Associated with
Early Brain Overgrowth
7/25/2019
Tony Wynshaw-Boris, MD, PhD describes his lab's efforts to use mouse and IPSC models to find commonalities that give insight into the complex disorder of autism.
Gene Edited Cells: Next Generation of Cancer Therapeutics
6/30/2019
Khalid Shah, MS, PhD discusses translating biological therapies into clinical care.
The Piwi-piRNA Pathway: A New Paradigm of Gene Regulation with Haifan Lin
5/17/2019
Professor at Yale University and the founding director of the Yale Stem Cell Center Haifan Lin talks about how the discoveries of small non-coding RNAs, including PIWI-interacting RNAs (piRNAs), have significantly expanded the RNA world.
Development of Therapeutic Approaches for Muscle Disease Using Human Pluripotent Stem Cells
3/7/2019
April Pyle, Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Molecular Genetics at UCLA, uses multi-disciplinary approaches to study human pluripotent stem cell biology and differentiation of these cells for use in regenerative medicine. She studies both basic aspects of stem cell biology as well as more translational aspects of human pluripotent stem cell differentiation towards skeletal muscle for use in therapeutic approaches for patients with muscular dystrophy.
Getting to the Heart of Cell Fate Control
9/28/2018
Laurie A. Boyer, PhD, Associate Professor of Biology and Biological Engineering at MIT, discusses her work studying cell fate and cardiac regeneration. She shares how her lab is dissecting the gene regulatory mechanisms that control lineage commitment during heart development and congenital heart defects and applying this knowledge toward engineering cardiac tissues.
TBR1 and AUTS2: Sequential Regulators of Gene Expression in Cortical Development with Overlapping Neurodevelopmental Syndromes
8/3/2018
TBR1 and AUTS2, the development of the cerebral cortex, and developmental transcription factors.
Progenitor Cell-Based Modeling and Treatment of Glial Disease
7/23/2018
Steven A. Goldman, MD, PhD discusses cell genesis and neural regeneration in the adult brain, with a focus on the use of neural stem and progenitor cells in treating demyelinating and neurodegenerative diseases. Recorded on 05/10/2018.
