Gladstone-UCSF Institute of Genomic Immunology Symposium

January 22, 2021
9am - 1pm

Next Generation in Genomic Immunology

The Gladstone-UCSF Institute of Genomic Immunology is creating an ecosystem that brings together experts to develop transformative opportunities to harness the immune system to treat patients across a broad range of diseases.

In this inaugural symposium, you’ll hear from up-and-coming scientists from around the world who are using innovative technologies at the intersection of human immunology, genomics, CRISPR genome engineering, computational biology, and synthetic biology to answer key questions in human immunology and to repurpose the immune system for therapeutic benefit.
