Event starts at 6pm
We are so excited to host Dr. David Lewis from Stanford University for this event!
Dr. Lewis is head of the lab that conducts all of the research affiliated with SIOD. He and his team have made groundbreaking discoveries over recent months and are working in conjunction with some of the brightest minds in research for other areas as well. Dr. Matthew Porteus has played a big role in working with Dr. Lewis to help perfect his Caspr9 technology to use with SIOD research. To date, our lab has been able to produce Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells that are being used to create tissue from all major organs. Scientists are then able to give each tissue sample the disease and have created a D-tag for use to switch off the disease in the tissue. These are major advancements in research toward finding new treatments for not just SIOD, but other diseases related to kidney issues, migraines and more.
