  • Tuesday, June 24th from 6 -7pm at the Manchester Grand Hyatt, 1 Market Place, SD, CA 92101.

    June is "Meet the New CIRM President" Month: Public Events in SF, LA, and SD

    As you probably have heard by now CIRM has a new President at the stem cell agency. In April, after a nationwide search, the governing Board appointed C. Randal (Randy) Mills, PhD. CIRM would like to introduce him to you. One of the most important resources CIRM has is you, our supporters, so we want to make sure you have an opportunity to meet the new President, to hear about his goals and hopes for the future of the agency and, of course,  to ask him questions.

    The San Diego meeting is:  San Diego: Tuesday, June 24th from 6 – 7pm at the Manchester Grand Hyatt, 1 Market Place, San Diego, CA 92101. 

    This is going to be held at the same time as the BIO 2014 conference so we are meeting in the Grand Hyatt, in the Gaslamp rooms A & B

    light refreshments, and parking is available if needed. We do hope you will join us for one of the events. And feel free to share this invitation with anyone you think might be interested.

    To ensure there are enough seats for everyone, please RVSP to:

    BE281 SEMINAR 
    Song Li 
    Professor with Bioengineering - University of California, Berkeley
     "
    Engineering Stem Cells: From In Vitro to In Situ"
     Abstract:
    Cell reprogramming provides valuable cell sources for tissue engineering, disease modeling and drug screening. Although the effects of transcriptional factors and chemical compounds on cell reprogramming have been widely studied, the role of biophysical factors is not clear. I will present our findings on how biophysical factors can regulate the epigenetic state and thus the cell memory and reprogramming process, which has important implications in cell conversion into pluripotent stem cells and specific cell types. To illustrate the important role played by stem cells in tissue regeneration and remodeling in vivo, I will use blood vessel regeneration as an example to demonstrate an evolution from in vitro tissue engineering to in situ tissue engineering. In this approach, the acellular vascular graft is loaded with bioactive factors to awaken the regeneration potential of the body, and recruit stem cells from the circulation and surrounding tissues to regenerate the blood vessel. In addition, endogenous stem cells are found to participate in the regeneration of microvessels and the development of vascular diseases, suggesting a more general role of endogenous stem cells in vascular remodeling. 
    Biography:
    Dr. Song Li had his Ph.D. and postdoctoral training in Dr. Shu Chien's lab at UC San Diego. He is currently a Professor of Bioengineering at UC Berkeley. His research is focused on cell and tissue engineering. His lab combines tissue engineering, cell lineage tracing and imaging tools to elucidate the mechanism of how stem cells participate in the regeneration and disease development of blood vessels in vivo. He also seeks to understand how biophysical factors regulate the mechanotransduction from extracellular space to chromatin, and thus modulating the epigenetic state and cell reprogramming. Dr. Li has authored more than 100 papers and has filed 4 patents. He co-founded two companies and helped translate the research findings into biomedical applications. Dr. Li is a Fellow of American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering, and he is active in serving BMES and academic community.

    Mee Wa Wong, Ph.D.
    Silicon Biosystems Inc.

    "Single-Cell Resolution, Automated, Image-Based Sorting of Pure Cells and their Comprehensive Molecular Characterization"
    Abstract: The DEPArray™ is a cell microarray implementing Silicon Biosystems’ patented technology for individual cell manipulation and detection. The technology bases on the principle of dielectrophoresis for capturing and manipulation of single cells and uses fluorescence imaging for selection of cells. Unlike traditional flow cytometry, there is no a-priori threshold and cells are isolated, non-contact, at 100% purity. Isolated single cells or pure population of cells can then be further characterized with DNA analysis, expression profiling, or cell proliferation. The DEPArray technology enables researchers to perform the analysis with homogeneous population of cells instead of obtaining an average from heterogeneous populations of cells.
