Synthetic Biology: Next-Generation Diagnostics Lecture


On Tuesday, February 26, join Brigham and Women’s Hospital for the weekly Clinical Pathology Conference lecture series featuring Wyss Core Faculty member James Collins. James Collins is a founder of the field of synthetic biology and a pioneer in the application of systems biology concepts to solve major biomedical problems. His internationally acclaimed research uses network biology approaches to study antibiotic action and the emergence of resistance. This work has highlighted the importance of common pathways downstream of antibiotic targets, such as the TCA cycle and antioxidant defense systems, in modulating antibiotic-induced lethality. Dr. Collins has been translating these basic discoveries into the development of novel diagnostics platforms. Join the seminar to learn more!
