Dr. George Daley
"Engineering Cell Fates in Vitro"
Koch Institute at MIT Room 76-156, live broadcast to GT and UIUC
For the most recent installment of the EBICS Distinguished Lecturer Series, EBICS was pleased to host George Daley. Dr. Daley discussed current efforts to differentiate pluripotent stem cells to specific lineages by mimicking embryonic programs, and modes of assessing the fidelity of these cells relative to efforts to directly engineer cells via synthetic biology.
Dr. Daley is currently the Samuel E. Lux IV Professor of Hematology/Oncology and the Director of the Stem Cell Transplantation Program at Boston Children's Hospital; Professor of Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, Medicine, and Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School; an investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute; Associate Director of Children's Stem Cell Program; and a founding member of the Executive Committee of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute.
