Cell Mapping Symposium 2017

A 2-day symposium to discuss research and technological advances in the exciting field of cell mapping!
Wednesday, September 13, 2017 - 1:00pm to Thursday, September 14, 2017 - 5:00pm
Mahley Auditorium

The 2017 Cell Mapping Symposium, hosted by Gladstone Institutes and the Quantitative Biosciences Institute (QBI) at UCSF, will address research and technology advances in cell mapping as it relates to cancer, psychiatric disorders, and infectious disease.

The ability of a cell to respond to its environment depends on the actions of the proteins encoded by the DNA in the genome. However, most proteins don’t work alone. They work with other proteins in teams called complexes. The principles of “cell mapping” are to figure out which proteins work together in complexes. Mapping can be done in different disease states or in the presence of different chemical drugs. To accomplish these goals, researchers augment these cell maps with genetic maps to derive quantitative insights into how biological functions of cells can be restored.

One of the main objectives of this symposium is to discuss technological advances in extracting mechanistic insight from these large genome sequencing projects. These efforts include using proteomic, biochemical, genetic, and structural biology approaches to generate cellular maps that can be used to interpret this genomic data from a variety of different disease areas. 

The 2017 Cell Mapping Symposium, will be held over 2 days, September 13 and 14, 2017, at the Gladstone Institutes in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood. Confirmed speakers for the symposium are listed below.
