Gladstone-UCSF Institute of Genomic Immunology Seminar

Garry Nolan, PhD

Professor, Stanford University

Garry Nolan, PhD, is the Rachford and Carlota A. Harris Professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Stanford University School of Medicine. He trained with Leonard Herzenberg (for his PhD) and David Baltimore (for postdoctoral work including the first cloning/characterization of NF-κB p65/ RelA and the development of rapid retroviral production systems).

The Nolan Lab uses multiparametric single-cell analysis to study hematopoiesis, cancer and leukemia, autoimmunity, and inflammation. They also develop computational approaches for network and systems immunology. Recent efforts are focused on a single-cell analysis advance using a mass spectrometry-flow cytometry hybrid device, so-called CyTOF. This approach uses an advanced ion plasma source to determine the levels of tagged reagents bound to cells—enabling a vast increase in the number of parameters that can be measured per cell. The lab has begun a large-scale mapping of the hematopoietic hierarchy in healthy human bone marrow at an unprecedented level of detail.

The Nolan group is working to enable a deeper understanding not only of normal immune function, but also detailed substructures of leukemias and solid cancers, as well as autoimmunity and pathogen effects upon the immune system.

10:00-11:00am PDT

The Gladstone-UCSF Institute of Genomic Immunology Seminar Series showcases speakers at the intersection of genomic technology and immunology research with an aim to engineer the human immune system for therapeutic benefit. Speakers span technology development, synthetic biology, bioengineering, and the development and clinical application of immunotherapy. These talks are open to the Gladstone and UCSF communities.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Gladstone, we are committed to providing events and professional development activities that resonate with our community’s diverse members. Our goal is to develop creative programming that encompasses a wide variety of ideas and perspectives to inspire, educate, and engage with everyone within our walls.

We want to effect positive change through our events and activities by providing a platform for discussions on important topics related to increasing diversity and inclusiveness in the sciences.
