Protein Assembly: A 4th Dimension of Gene Expression with Broad Implications for Disease Therapeutics Vishwanath Lingappa*, MD, PhD

Professor Emeritus of Physiology, UCSF

*An understanding of the role of assembly in gene expression and why it has been difficult to decipher previously.

*Examples of diseases for which drug-like assembly modulators appear to be effective in cellular and animal models.

* An overview of the tools used to identify these novel druggable targets and how they make previously unappreciated targets detectable.

*To summarize the challenges and appeal of assembly modulation as a therapeutic strategy.

Vishwanath (Vishu) Lingappa received his B.A. degree from Swarthmore college with High Honors (1975), Ph.D. from Rockefeller University (1979), and M.D. from Cornell University Medical College (1980). After his Internal Medicine residency at UCSF, he joined the faculty in Physiology and Medicine in 1982 conducting basic research in cell biology, teaching physiology, pathophysiology and internal medicine to medical students and residents, practicing outpatient primary care general internal medicine at SFGH, and inpatient medicine ward attending at SFGH and UC Moffitt-Long Hospitals.

He has over 100 peer-reviewed articles and patents, and multiple editions of textbooks in physiology, cell biology, and pathophysiology. He has trained nearly 50 post-doctoral fellows and graduate students. He was a principal co-author of the unsuccessful California ballot initiative for a single-payer health program for California in 1994. In 2004 he retired from UCSF and founded Prosetta where he currently serves as CEO and Chief Technology Officer. Shortly thereafter he ended his clinical practice. He is recipient of a Kaiser Award for Excellence in Teaching (1990), has been elected to the ASCI (1986), AAP (1990), and fellow of AAAS (2004).

The Care of Vulnerable Patients: Partnering to Achieve Health Equity

Substance Use--Addiction Theories, New Treatments, and the Role of Doctoring in Society with Soraya Azari, MD, Diana Coffa, MD & Scott Steiger, MD Medical research over the last two decades has clearly documented that people of lower socioeconomic status and from minority racial and ethnic backgrounds have worse health, worse access to medical care and often receive a lower standard of health care. The poorer health and inferior healthcare received by the underprivileged are pointedly referred to as inequities in health and health care. With this perspective, a person and a community’s health -- and the healthcare they receive -- are measures of social justice.rnrnSan Francisco, long a champion of social change, is leading the charge to improve the health of people who are socially disadvantaged. Through research and innovations in practice, policy and education, faculty at UCSF and Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital (arguably our nation's premier public hospital) are at the head of a movement to ensure that medical care mitigates, not perpetuates, societal injustices. Our course presents an approach to medical care that integrates medical research with a social justice perspective to tackle some of the most critical issues that complicate the care of underserved patients and to re-inspire and re-instill meaning and purpose to the helping professions. 513 Parnassus Avenue, Room N-217 + Add to calendar

What does CRISPR mean for Cardiologists? Bruce Conklin*, MD

Gladstone Scientific Officer, Research Technology & Innovation

Senior Investigator, Gladstone

Professor, UCSF Departments of Medicine and Ophthalmology

Deputy Director, Innovative Genomics Institute

http://tiny.ucsf.edu/MGR17stream

*What is CRISPR?

*What does CRISPR technology mean for understanding disease?

*How can CRISPR technology be used to cure disease?

Dr. Conklin’s research focuses on genome engineering to identify novel therapeutic approaches to human disease. By making precise genetic changes in induced pluripotent cells he seeks to reveal the cellular and molecular mechanisms of disease and identify new methods for therapeutic editing. He began his research career by working for two years at NIH with Julius Axelrod, Ph.D., (Nobel Laureate). He then completed his residency at Johns Hopkins Hospital and a postdoctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Henry Bourne, M.D. at UCSF. In 1995 Dr. Conklin joined the Gladstone Institutes and the UCSF faculty where he is now a Senior Investigator at Gladstone, and a Professor at UCSF. Dr. Conklin is also the Gladstone Scientific Officer for Technology & Innovation and the deputy director of the Innovative Genomics Institute. He is the founder BayGenomics, GenMAPP, AltAnalyze and WikiPathways. He pioneered the field of chemogenetics using designer GPCRs (RASSLs). He founded the Gladstone Genomics and Stem Cell Cores. He advises multiple organizations including the Allen Institute for Cell Science, Chinese University of Hong Kong, and the SF Exploratorium. He is a Fellow in the California Academy of Sciences and a member the American Society for Clinical Investigation.

Firearms Violence Research and the Practicing Clinician Jahan Fahimi, MD, MPH

Assistant Professor of Clinical Emergency Medicine

Violence Topic Steward, Bridges Curriculum, UCSF School of Medicine

Director of Value Improvement, UCSF Health

http://tiny.ucsf.edu/MGR17stream

*Explain the history behind the federal ban on firearms violence research funding

*Compare and contrast firearms violence to other public health challenges in the United States

*Understand why it is critical to not just assess patients for exposure to violence but also screen for access to lethal means

Dr. Jahan Fahimi completed his residency and chief residency in Emergency Medicine at Highland Hospital in Oakland, CA, followed by both a research fellowship and faculty appointment at Highland. He joined the faculty at UCSF part-time in 2011 and fulltime in 2015, practicing clinically at the Parnassus campus. Dr. Fahimi’s research interests include studying long-term outcomes after surviving firearms injury, how to address social determinants of health in the emergency department, national trends in emergency department utilization, and novel applications of emergency ultrasound. His firearms research has been previously funded by the Hellman Fellows Fund. Currently, he directs the School of Medicine’s violence curriculum for medical students – a curriculum that ranges from understanding how structural violence impacts health to development of competencies for adequate screening and treatment for various forms of violence.
