Lunch Briefing Tomorrow: Sickle Cell Trait

Sickle cell trait is a condition, often one without symptoms, in which a person can carries a single gene for sickle cell disease and can pass this gene on to their children. This briefing will present a general overview about trait; the importance of knowing
your status and what it means to have trait, the current state of sickle cell trait research, and a personal story of one family’s journey with trait.

Briefing TODAY: CAR-T Cancer Immunotherapy

Over the course of the past decade, incredible progress has been made in the development of new therapies to treat the blood cancers (leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma). In no area is this more apparent than in the development of different immunotherapies,
in which the power of the body’s own immune system is harnessed to fight cancer. Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy is a cutting- edge immunotherapy in which a patient’s own cells are removed, genetically modified, and infused back into the patient
to fight their blood cancer.

Briefing TOMORROW: Research & Development in Cellular Agriculture

One of the newest developments in agriculture is cellular agriculture – growing food starting from cell cultures rather than from whole plants or animals. Meat grown this way, known as clean meat, cultured meat, or lab-grown meat, could have implications
for food safety, humane treatment of animals, and sustainability of food production.
