Lecture 1: Designing Biology for Health

Lecture 1: Designing Biology for Health

Here, I will present background on health-related problems that can be addressed by synthetic and systems biology. I will present a personal case study on development of a cancer therapeutic from basic research to clinical and commercial success. I will then discuss the status of protein engineering for biologics. I will then cover how to design cells as diagnostics and therapeutics. Issues around stability and safety will be addressed.
