BIH Lecture on-site at BBAW | Steven A. Goldman: "Progenitor Cell Replacement for the Treatment of Glial Disease"
Part of the Lecture Series "Frontiers in Translational Medicine - Scientific and Structural Challenges" on key questions of translation in medicine.
“Progenitor Cell Replacement for the Treatment of Glial Disease”
Goldman is interested in cell genesis and regeneration in the adult brain, with a focus on the use of stem and progenitor cells in both modeling and treating demyelinating and neurodegenerative diseases, including targets as diverse as progressive multiple sclerosis, the leukodystrophies, Huntington Disease and schizophrenia. He also has a strong interest in the conversion of resident cells into brain cancers, and is board certified in neuro-oncology. Goldman is a recipient of the Novo Nordisk Foundation Laureate Award, the Jacob Javits Neuroscience Investigator Award of the NIH, and has been elected to Academia Europaea, the Association of American Physicians, the American Society for Clinical Investigation, and is a fellow of the American Neurological Association and the American Academy of Neurology.
This BIH Lecture is organized in cooperation with the German Stem Cell Network (GSCN).
Moderated by Hans Schöler (President GSCN).
About the Speaker
Steven A. Goldman is the URMC Distinguished Professor of Neuroscience and Neurology, and co-Director of the University of Rochester's Center for Translational Neuromedicine. He has a concurrent appointment as Professor of Neuroscience at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark, and as co-director of its sister Center for Translational Neuromedicine. He also serves as Senior Vice President and Head of CNS Therapy at Sana Biotechnology, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Goldman moved to Rochester in 2003 from the Weill Medical College of Cornell University. A summa cum laude graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, he obtained his PhD with Fernando Nottebohm at the Rockefeller University in 1983, and his MD from Cornell in 1984. Goldman did his residency in neurology at New York Hospital-Cornell and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, and later moved to the University of Rochester Medical Center, where he served as chairman of its Department of Neurology. He remains active clinically, with strong associated research interests in the stem cell-based treatment of neurological disease.
Perfect lunch break
Join us on-site at BBAW for this great scientific lunch break – a small snack will be provided. Or use this opportunity to have a cup of hot cocoa with your colleagues at the Christmas Market of Bebelplatz – just around the corner of the venue. We look forward to seeing many of you!
