The Promise of Precision Medicine


How bioengineering is revolutionizing disease diagnosis

Join Chancellor Carol T. Christ and distinguished faculty and friends for a dynamic evening exploring the novel new ways Berkeley scientists are advancing cutting-edge techniques for addressing disease at the cellular level. This exclusive event features Chan Zuckerberg Biohub Investigator Dan Fletcher, Purnendu Chatterjee Chair in Engineering Biological Systems; and Lydia Sohn, professor of Mechanical Engineering and core member, UCSF-UC Berkeley Graduate Program in Bioengineering. Together, they will share new insights into how bioengineering can diagnose and prevent deadly disease.
