"Mammalian Synthetic Biology: Foundation and Therapeutic Applications"

Recent advances in mammalian synthetic biology are revolutionizing how we approach long-standing problems in medicine and healthcare. Towards this goal, we are creating a toolkit for regulating gene expression in mammalian cells and employing it for a variety of applications.  In this talk, we will describe synthetic developmental programs to create organoids and multi-input genetic circuits that precisely distinguish between tumor and non-tumor cells with therapeutic outcomes against cancer.
