Andrew Braisted Lecture

Thu Nov 6, 2014 - 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

This endowed lecture was established by UCSF and UC Berkeley to bring together San Francisco Bay Area scientists who work at the interface of chemistry and biology. The lecture was established in memory of Andrew Braisted, a young scientist in chemical biology who had strong ties to UCSF, UCB, and the biotechnology industry, and who died unexpectedly in 2003.

Frontiers in Biophysics and Chemical Biology: a symposium in honor of Bill DeGrado

Sat Aug 9, 2014 (all day)

Chemical biology is a rapidly growing and changing field. This symposium highlights recent developments in chemical biology, outlines grand challenges in medicinal chemistry, and provides a platform for discussion on how these challenges can be met. The selection of speakers is diverse both in terms of topics and their affiliations (industry, academia, government) to give attendees a broad perspective on the current state of the field and its future directions.

Burlingame and Gross labs shed light on braking mechanisms in cellular signaling

How do cells that must respond rapidly and robustly to changes in the environment subsequently modulate that response so such elevated activity doesn’t prove harmful? Put another way: How do cells put the brakes on their response to external signaling in order to re-stabilize themselves?
