Engineered Next-generation Protein Therapeutics for Treating Cancer (Postponed)

Thursday, April 2, 2020
3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Location: BME 3.204

Jennifer R. Cochran, Ph.D.
Professor and Chair
Department of Bioengineering
Stanford University


The Cochran Lab engineers proteins as therapeutics and diagnostic agents for biomedical applications including cancer and regenerative medicine. I will provide an overview of our research and will discuss the discovery and development of therapeutic approaches for targeted cancer treatment, spanning a broad range of efforts in the areas of protein design and engineering, biochemical and biophysical analyses, and preclinical and clinical testing. In particular, my presentation will highlight several examples of engineered proteins that have translational potential for treating aggressive tumors, including ovarian, breast, and lung cancers.
