Too Much of a Good Thing: Implications for Public Health, Modern Medicine and US Presidential Elections

Parnassus: HSW-300 noon - 1:00 pm

Lee Goldman, MD, MPH

Harold and Margaret Hatch Professor

Executive Vice President and Dean of the Faculties of Health Sciences and Medicine

Chief Executive, Columbia University Medical Center

http://tiny.ucsf.edu/MGR18stream

*Why U.S. life expectancy is declining

*How human traits and man-made problems are contributing to that decline

*How the 2016 U.S. presidential election was related to these problems

*How modern medicine might help

Lee Goldman, M.D., M.P.H., is the Harold and Margaret Hatch Professor, Executive Vice President and Dean of the Faculties of Health Sciences and Medicine, and Chief Executive of Columbia University Medical Center. He received his B.A., M.D., and M.P.H. degrees from Yale University. He did his internal medicine training at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and Massachusetts General Hospital, and his cardiology training at Yale.

From 1978 to 1995, positions at Harvard included Professor of Medicine and Professor of Epidemiology, while positions at Brigham and Women’s Hospital included Vice Chair of the Department of Medicine and Chief Medical Officer.

From 1995 to 2006, he was the Julius R. Krevans Professor, Chair of Medicine, and Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs at UCSF. Dr. Goldman’s research focuses on cardiac risk in non-cardiac surgery, determining which patients with chest pain require hospital admission, establishing priorities for the prevention and treatment of coronary disease, and the scientific basis for the now ubiquitous chest-pain evaluation units and the first academic hospitalist program. More than 45 trainees first-authored peer-reviewed publications under his mentorship.

Dr. Goldman is a member of the American Society for Clinical Investigation; past President of the Association of American Physicians, the Society of General Internal Medicine, and the Association of Professors of Medicine; a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science; and a member of the National Academy of Medicine. He received the highest awards of the Society of General Internal Medicine (the Glaser Award), the American College of Physicians (the John Phillips Award), and the Association of Professors of Medicine (the Williams Award). Dr. Goldman is the lead editor of Goldman-Cecil Medicine, the longest continuously published medical textbook in the United States. His most recent book, Too Much of a Good Thing: How Four Key Survival Traits Are Now Killing Us, was published in 2015.

He holds an honorary M.A. degree from Harvard University and an honorary Doctor of Science degree from the University of Glasgow. The University of California, San Francisco created the Lee Goldman M.D. Endowed Chair in Medicine in his name.

Molecular Basis of Lupus Pathogenesis

Parnassus: HSW 300 noon - 1:00 pm

Julie Zikherman, MD

Associate Professor-in-Residence

Division of Rheumatology, Department of Medicine, UCSF

http://tiny.ucsf.edu/MGR18stream

*To understand the role of BCR signaling, TLR signaling, and type I interferons in lupus pathogenesis

*To understand how understanding molecular basis of lupus pathogenesis informs novel therapeutic approaches.

Julie Zikherman received her M.D from Cornell, completed her internal medicine residency at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and split her rheumatology fellowship training between Brigham and Women’s and UCSF. She has been on the faculty of the UCSF Division of Rheumatology since 2008. Her post-doctoral training was in molecular immunology with Dr. Art Weiss, and started her independent laboratory at UCSF in 2013.

Her laboratory is interested in understanding how self-reactive B cells, despite chronic antigen engagement of the B cell receptor, are restrained from inappropriate activation and differentiation. She is interested in how this process is disrupted in autoimmune disease, and how tolerance mechanisms can be harnessed to treat autoimmunity. To address these questions, her lab takes advantage of novel reporter mice in which self-reactive B cells are fluorescently marked (Nur77-eGFP BAC transgenic line). Current projects include dissecting the distinct roles of the IgM and IgD B cell receptor isotypes in regulating immune responses by self-reactive B cells. More recent work is focused on defining how Nur77 and related orphan nuclear hormone receptors function selectively to restrain activation of self-reactive B cells.
