The annual Nano-Bio Symposium is INBT’s signature event to showcase our multidisciplinary programs and researchers from across the entire University. The event provides an opportunity to hear presentations by leading scholars in the field, both from Hopkins and other institutions. It also offers a unique opportunity to meet and network with faculty and experts to establish new collaborations.
The annual symposium is hosted by INBT and the Physical Science-Oncology Center. This years theme will be Advanced Biomanufacuring and take place at the Homewood campus in the Glass Pavilion.
Rachel Karchin will deliver a lecture titled “Computational modeling of cancer precursor lesion evolution” as part of the Don P. Giddens Inaugural Professorial Lecture Series. Karchin is a professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering.
Genome sequencing studies of tumor samples from large patient cohorts have provided convincing support for the somatic mutation theory of cancer, which posits that neoplasms result from mutational activation of oncogenes and mutational inactivation of tumor suppressor genes. Tumor cells originating from the same ancestral lineage form clonal populations, and the size and time-ordering of the clones can be modeled by hierarchical tree structures. In this lecture, Professor Karchin will discuss her research group’s reconstructions of precursor lesion evolution in high grade serous ovarian cancer and pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
The Don P. Giddens Inaugural Professorial Lecture Series began in 1993 as a way to honor newly promoted full professors. Professor Giddens, originator of the series, served as the fifth dean of Engineering at Johns Hopkins.
The Annual Nano-Bio Symposium is a showcase and celebration of the latest discoveries in nanoscience from our multidisciplinary research teams at the Institute for NanoBioTechnology. It brings students and top scholars from Hopkins, other institutions, and industry together to network, share knowledge and ideas, and foster new collaborations.
The theme for the 2019 Nano-Bio Symposium is Translation of Nano & Bio Research.
