Past Seminars

January 10, 2023

Detection and Diagnosis of Mendelian and Undiagnosed Diseases

Learn about how the NIH’s GREGoR (Genomics Research to Elucidate the Genetics of Rare diseases) Consortium is aiming to recruit patients at Stanford and develop new approaches for solving rare genetic diseases, as well as the Undiagnosed Disease Network's (UDN) role and opportunities.

Deciphering the Warburg effect: metabolic reprogramming, epigenetic dysregulation, and cell dedifferentiation

Learn how the Warburg effect promotes tumorigenesis. The seminar will discuss how metabolic reprogramming causes epigenetic dysregulation, leading to cell dedifferentiation and tumor progression, and how to use metabolic therapy to reverse the Warburg effect and reactivate differentiation program for the cure of cancer.
