Seminar Series

The Stanford Bio-X Frontiers in Interdisciplinary Biosciences seminar series is an introduction to cutting-edge research involving interdisciplinary approaches to bioscience and biotechnology, intended for both specialists and non-specialists, organized and sponsored by Stanford Bio-X.

Three seminars each quarter address a broad set of scientific and technical themes related to interdisciplinary approaches to important issues in bioengineering, medicine, and the chemical, physical and biological sciences.

Pre-seminars introduce basic concepts and background for non-experts. Registered students attend all pre-seminars; others welcome.

Students register through their affiliated department; otherwise register for CHEMENG 459. For more student information, visit the course page.

Seminar Series

  • Frontiers in Quantitative Biology Seminar

    CLEMENS CABERNARD, UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON

    How developing organisms generate and maintain cells with specialized functions and fates is a fundamental problem in biology. The Cabernard lab is investigating asymmetric cell division (ACD), a process that generates cellular diversity. They are using Drosophila melanogaster neuroblasts, the neural stem cells in the fly as a model to study the molecular cell biology and mechanics of asymmetric stem cell division.

    February 28, 2019 10:00 AM
    Munzer Auditorium
    Beckman Center, 279 Campus Drive West, Stanford, CA 94305
  • Stanford Bio-X Frontiers in Interdisciplinary Biosciences Pre-Seminar

    FAN YANG, DEPARTMENTS OF ORTHOPAEDIC SURGERY AND BIOENGINEERING

    Attend Dr. Yang's pre-seminar presentation to learn more about Dr. Brendan Harley's seminar, "Engineering complexity through biomaterial design", to be held Thursday, March 7th.

    March 05, 2019 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM
    Clark Center Seminar Room S361
    James H. Clark Center 318 Campus Drive West, Stanford, CA 94305
  • Stanford bio-X Frontiers in Interdisciplinary Biosciences Seminar

    BRENDAN HARLEY, UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS

    Dr. Harley's group develops biomaterials that replicate the dynamic, spatially-patterned, and heterogeneous microenvironment found in the tissues and organs of our body. They use this approach to generate new insight regarding how biomaterial cues can instruct cell responses in the context of development, disease, and regeneration.

    March 07, 2019 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM
    Clark Center Seminar Room S360
    James H. Clark Center 318 Campus Drive West, Stanford, CA 94305
  • Frontiers in Quantitative Biology Seminar

    ADAM DEUTSCHBAUER, LAWRENCE BERKELEY NATIONAL LABORATORY

    Adam Deutschbauer has a background in Microbial systems biology. As part of the Virtual Institute of Microbial Stress and Survival, he develops next-generation tools for microbial functional genomics. As the Biotechnology Component Deputy Director, he helps drive the development of experimental and computational approaches to develop models of microbial metabolism, gene regulation, and signal transduction.

    March 14, 2019 10:00 AM
    Munzer Auditorium
    Beckman Center, 279 Campus Drive West, Stanford, CA 94305
  • Frontiers in Quantitative Biology Seminar

    STEFANO DI TALIA, DUKE UNIVERSITY

    The Di Talia laboratory develops live imaging and computational methods to probe the dynamics of the signaling pathways that control cell division during development and regeneration. They aim to uncover the dynamical principles that ensure that embryonic development and regeneration are regulated in a reliable manner.
