Systems and Synthetic Biology Symposium

Gladstone Center for Cell Circuitry
Tuesday, June 4, 2019 - 12:00pm to 5:00pm
Room 107A/B

From tiny viruses to complex organs, genetic circuits are fundamental to biology. Circuits connect individual molecular components and allow cells to process signals and control decision-making. Therapeutically, cellular circuits have enormous potential; if these circuits can be mapped, we could repair broken circuits that lead to disease and disrupt specialized circuits in viruses and cancers. The inaugural Gladstone Center for Cell Circuitry 2019 Systems and Synthetic Biology Symposium aims to bring together scientists exploiting gene circuits to answer biological questions from fundamental biology to therapeutics.
