2023 Idea Lab

UCB and Stanford Idea Lab attendees listen in on Russ Altman's opening address for the event.

Stanford and UCB hosted a collaborative Idea Lab on Stanford's campus from March 29 - 20, 2023. 

The overall goal of the event was to identify the right molecular pathway and right target for selection and intervention in therapeutics. Additionally, the collaboration sought to create seamless, iterative cycles between in silico and in vitro, dry lab and wet lab, hypothesis generation, and testing. 

UCB scientists, Stanford faculty, and doctoral students came together to brainstorm creative solutions during this event and demonstrated incredible synergy. The group collectively developed several project proposals, which will be reviewed by the Joint Steering Committee for potential funding.
