The University of Arizona Health Sciences Tomorrow is Here Lecture Series launched in Phoenix and Tucson in mid-May. In Tucson, Deepta Bhattacharya, PhD, professor of immunobiology in the College of Medicine – Tucson, presented “A New Era for Science: Creating New Defenses Against Disease After COVID-19.” He discussed key research discoveries connected to COVID-19 and how they are driving and informing new pathways of scientific pursuit to create defenses against disease. Michael D. Dake, MD, senior vice president for the University of Arizona Health Sciences, presented “Precision Health Care for All: The University of Arizona Health Sciences Center for Advanced Molecular and Immunological Therapies” in Phoenix. He introduced CAMI, a new center that will accelerate the development and availability of personalized cell- and gene-based therapies and serve as the hub of a new innovation district at the Phoenix Bioscience Core.
Both lectures are available to view on demand.
The Tomorrow is Here Lecture Series will continue sharing research and discoveries with local community members in the fall.
