The Department of Molecular and Medical Pharmacology (DMMP) is a combined basic science and clinical department. The DMMP integrates mathematics, engineering, physical, biological and medical sciences to achieve together advances that we cannot achieve individually in three overall areas: (1) understanding biology of disease, (2) developing new molecular diagnostics and (3) developing new molecular and cellular therapeutics.
The DMMP offers an opportunity for students, postdocs, medical fellows, and basic and clinical faculty to explore together the molecular and biological mechanisms that regulate cellular and organ functions to (1) identify and understand molecular errors of disease, (2) develop means to diagnose and monitor disease, and (3) develop pharmacological means to correct these errors. Within the DMMP are the preclinical Crump Institute for Molecular Imaging (CIMI) and the Ahmanson Translational Imaging Division (ATID). Within ATID, with its Nuclear Medicine and PET imaging research and clinical service, students have access to state-of-the-art science and technology to directly impact patient care.
The 2015 Massry Prize lectures will be presented in the NRB auditorium on Friday, October 30, 2015, from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm. Flyer here.
This year's winners are Drs. Phillipe Horvath, Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna for their discovery of the mechanism of the CRISPR/Cas mechanism of bacterial immuity, and its adaptation to the manipulation of the genomes of essentially all species.
Please contact Harvey Herschman for questions.
