The Academic Senate celebrates Kathleen M. Giacomini, PhD, Professor of the Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences and Co-Director of the UCSF-Stanford Center of Excellence in Regulatory Sciences and Innovation, as the recipient of the ninth annual Faculty Research Lecture in Translational Science.
The lecture, titled Genomics of the Solute Carrier Superfamily: Good transporters sometimes do bad things, will occur on Thursday, May 9, 2019 from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Byers Auditorium on the Mission Bay campus.
A pioneer investigator in the role of protein membrane transporters, her researchers has great clinical importance as membrane transporters provide the target for many of the most commonly prescribed drugs and are major determinants of drug absorption, disposition, sensitivity, and resistance. Professor Giacomini's lab has had a major impact in improving human health and in advancing the fundamental understanding of this key aspect of biology.
Following the lecture a reception will be held in the Genentech Hall Atrium on the Mission Bay Campus.
