C2ST Presents the 2018 FNIH Lurie Prize in Biomedical Sciences Winner Zhijian ‘James’ Chen, PhD
Prentice Women’s Hospital, Chicago IL
C2ST

Key to our understanding of the immune system is how it detects microbial pathogens and cancer cells and how it avoids attacking our own tissues in normal situations. An important mechanism of this immune detection is the detection of DNA from microbial pathogens and cancer cells. Our lab discovered the DNA sensing enzyme cGAS and the pathway through which cGAS launches immune and autoimmune responses. Dr. Chen will discuss the current status of immunotherapies and describe efforts in harnessing the cGAS pathway to fight cancer and autoimmune diseases.

Saving Darwin's Soul and Science's Life
Loyola University – Kasbeer Hall, Chicago IL
Lumen Christi Institute

7:30pm Close

The late 19th century witnessed the invention of what is now a well-worn trope: Science versus Religion. From this contrived construction modern fundamentalism was born: Scientific, Religious, and Philosophical. Such fundamentalisms spawned artificial ghettos of specialization that encouraged ambitions for totalizing disciplines. Darwinism was itself an example and victim of such blinkered vanity. Only by realizing the intrinsic marriage of all modes of knowledge can humanity’s most creative efforts flourish; otherwise, nihilism ensues.
