Dr. Kwong will be giving a seminar at Northwestern University in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics on Sept. 13. His talk is titled “Harnessing Protease Activity as ‘Biological Bits’ for Programmable Medicine”.
Dr. Kwong traveled to the Institut Pasteur in Paris, France to talk about work from our lab and Glympse Bio at the 4th Paris NASH Meeting. His talk was titled “Protease activity signatures in NASH”.
The Paris NASH Meeting is an international academic meeting is aimed to do a deep-dive into many aspects of NASH and to deliver scientific innovations that are not covered in other meetings.
Work in our lab on using synthetic biomarkers to noninvasively detect the onset of acute transplant rejection, spearheaded by graduate student Quoc Mac, was chosen as a plenary talk at the 2018 American Transplant Congress in Seattle, WA. We are excited to share our technology with scientists and clinicians around the country and world!
ATC 2018 is a joint meeting of the American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS) and the American Society of Transplantation (AST), bringing together nearly 5,000 attendees and exhibitors—a diverse mix of physicians, surgeons, scientists, nurses, organ procurement personnel, advanced transplant providers, pharmacists, administrators, and other transplant professionals. The five-day event features nearly 1,800 abstracts, 500+ oral presentations, and more than 1,200 poster presentations, all delivered in a way that encourages the exchange of new clinical and scientific information and supports an interchange of opinions regarding care management and socioeconomic, ethical, and regulatory issues relevant to organ and tissue transplantation.
Several members of LSI were selected to oral presentations at the BMES 2016 Annual Meeting in Minneapolis, MN. They are as follows:
Dr. Gabe Kwong – “A Mathematical Framework for Ultra-sensitive Detection of Cancer Using Activity-Based Biomarkers”
Shreyas Dahotre – “Highly Multiplexed Analysis of Cancer-specific T cells using DNA-barcoded peptide-MHC Tetramers”
Ian Miller – “Engineering Therapeutic T Cells that Activate by Photothermal Triggers”
Quoc Mac – “Activity-based Nanoparticles for Noninvasive Monitoring Of Organ Transplant Rejection”
Look forward to seeing you in Minneapolis!
