Gladstone Science Talks Spring 2019
“Resistance-Proof Therapies: From Concept to Discovery”
Leor Weinberger, PhD, Director
  • Gladstone Science Talks
Wednesday, February 13, 2019 - 11:00am to 12:00pm
Mahley Auditorium

Leor Weinberger, PhD
Director

A major focus of the Weinberger laboratory is to develop novel therapeutic strategies. They discovered viral gene circuits and showed that these could represent a new class of escape-resistant antiviral targets. More than 15 years ago, the laboratory proposed the concept of therapeutic interfering particles (TIPs)—molecular parasites of viruses that could circumvent barriers to population-wide infectious disease control. Recently, they engineered the first such therapies and showed that they work in animal models.


Gladstone Science Talks allow investigators to share the latest research from their laboratories. These talks are open to the broader Gladstone community. View all upcoming Gladstone Science Talks
