The 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 Interdisciplinary Biosciences Seminar

    DAVID SCHAFFER, UC BERKELEY

    Over the past decade, Dr. Schaffer's group initially developed and has been implementing directed vector evolution as a high throughput approach to engineer adeno-associated virus (AAV) variants with novel properties, including enhanced biodistribution and spread, targeted delivery to specific cells such as stem cells or their neighbors, and gene editing within a cell. This talk will discuss directed evolution of novel and biomedically relevant AAV variants, as well as the application of gene delivery technologies to investigate cells and stem cells in the nervous system.

    12:15 PM to 1:00 PM
    Clark Center Seminar Room S360
    James H. Clark Center 318 Campus Drive West, Stanford, CA 94305
  • Frontiers in Quantitative Biology Seminar

    LONG CAI, CALTECH

    The main focus of the Cai group is single cell systems biology. They use super-resolution and live cell microscopy to study gene regulatory networks in cells and organisms.
