About This Series

This core departmental conference brings faculty, residents, fellows, graduate students and staff together for an introduction to new concepts and techniques in both clinical and experimental pathology. It is part of Pathology 504, "Current Topics in Experimental Pathology."

GoldmanThe grand rounds series features reports from within the Department and the University of Rochester Medical Center as well as presentations by speakers from outside the University. Topics include developments in molecular pathology, cancer diagnosis/treatment and clinical quality assurance. 

Grand Rounds presentations take place Mondays at Noon via Zoom. Participants will receive 1 hour of CME credit.

Pathology Grand Rounds

Caroline Miller, MD and Chauncey Syposs, DO - University of Rochester Medical Center Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine

Hematopoietic Stem Cell Gene Therapy for Transfusion-Dependent Beta-thalassemia: This talk will review Beta-thalassemia pathology and current treatment. Drawbacks of current treatment options will be discusses. A new therapy in clinical trial will be examined. / 'Did Alphafold2 Solve the Levinthal Paradox and Fundamentally Change Structural Biology?' Computer algorithms are being developed to predict protein structure at an order of magnitude faster and cheaper. In November of this year the first algorithm that can predict protein structure with similar accuracy to experimental methods was demonstrated at CASP14.
