On National Coming Out Day, four scientists at Gladstone explain what the day means to them and why it’s important to create an open and inclusive environment.
Since Shinya Yamanaka discovered a method to create human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPS cells), Gladstone researchers have built on this technology to create numerous iPS cell lines, coax iPS cells into a myriad of tissue types, use them as a tool to study disease, and even begin creating therapies using these cells.
Each year, Gladstone welcomes the incoming class of UCSF students to tour the facilities and meet Gladstone investigators.
Gladstone Senior Investigator Warner C. Greene, MD, PhD, director of the Gladstone Center for HIV Cure Research, receives this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Scientific Contributions from the University of Maryland School of Medicine’s Institute of Human Virology. The award recognizes Greene’s over 30 years of research in virology and HIV/AIDS pathology.

Gladstone Assistant Investigator Seth Shipman is on this year’s Science News List of 10 Young Scientists to Watch. Shipman invented a system to store information in the genome of living cells. He is using tools from genetics and synthetic biology to understand fundamental aspects of cell biology and brain circuitry.
As clinical trials in Alzheimer’s disease have failed, Gladstone investigators are taking innovative approaches to understanding the disease and finding new therapeutic targets.
