OTHER SCIENTIFIC SESSIONS
Interdisciplinary Session: Open Problems in Biology Requiring
the Physical Sciences
Saturday, 1:00 pm-5:00 pm
Organizers:
Daniel Fletcher
, University of California, Berkeley;
Rob Phillips
, California Institute of Technology; and
Julie Theriot
,
Stanford University School of Medicine
This session features two long talks discussing physics and the
future of cell biology and the role of quantitative thinking in biology,
followed by eight short talks capturing the importance of the
following specific physical concepts to biology: models, electricity,
mechanosensation, size, deformation, cooperation, osmolarity, and
light.
Panel on Translational Cell Biology: How Is the Push from
Benchside into Medicine Going?
Moderator: 
Don Cleveland
, ASCB President and University of
California, San Diego
Panelists:
James Sabry
, Genentech;
Huda Y. Zogbhi
, Baylor
College of Medicine/HHMI; and
Bruce Spiegelman
, Dana-Farber
Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School
Sunday, 11:00 am-12:00 pm
Discovery of new developmental and metabolic pathways offers new,
as yet unrealized, opportunities for development of many potential
therapeutics. This panel will discuss the fundamentals (and pitfalls)
of how discoveries made at the bench—like those from panelists
Zogbhi and Spiegelman—can be developed into potential new
therapies.
Emerging Technologies Workshop
Tuesday, 11:00 am-12:00 pm
Speakers:
Eric Betzig
, Janelia Farm/HHMI; and
Feng Zhang
, Broad
Institute and Massachusetts Institute of Technology
The Emerging Technologies Workshop will feature two talks
highlighting technologies with broad applicability in modern cell
biology.
