Join us for four dynamic and interactive programs exploring UCSF’s core missions and the grand challenges of UCSF: The Campaign. Each one-hour experience takes place at 2:00 pm and again at 3:15 pm. Select one program per hour; capacity is limited.

Experience #1, Seacliff A
Healthy Aging, Healthy Life Span  
Saul Villeda, PhD 
The search for the fountain of youth is making progress in a UCSF lab. Scientists are working to solve one of the grand challenges of UCSF: The Campaign – Decoding Life to Improve Health – by exploring aging and its effects on the human body, from muscle to blood to neurons, in an effort to reverse those effects and eventually prevent them from even beginning.

Experience #2, Seacliff B
Probiotics for Kids?: Applying Probiotics for Colic and Asthma    
Michael D. Cabana, MD, MPH
Probiotics are defined as “live microorganisms that, when ingested, confer a health benefit to the host.” However, how much information about these products is science-based, and how much is just hype? This presentation will review some basic facts about probiotic supplements – for example, what to look for on the label – and discuss recent studies at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco on using probiotics for common pediatric issues such as colic and asthma.

Experience #3, Seacliff C
Your Microbial Universe: Using Microbes as Medicine    
Susan Lynch, PhD, Sergio Baranzini, PhD, Postdoc Alum, Tiffany Scharschmidt, MD, Resident Alum, Marina Sirota, PhD
The bacteria, fungi, viruses, and other microorganisms that live in and on our bodies create a universe unique to each of us: our microbiome. The interaction between microbial and human cells may determine whether your child develops asthma and allergies; how easily you can lose weight; and your susceptibility to skin diseases or oral health problems. This engaging and interactive program will help you learn more about how our individual microbiomes work and how UCSF researchers are decoding life to improve health, one of the three grand challenges of UCSF: The Campaign.

Experience #4 , Seacliff D
Innovation Sprint    
David Charron, MBA
*This program runs for 90 minutes and does not repeat.
Do you want health care in 2030 to be exactly the same as it is in 2018? We didn't think so! Find out how to revolutionize the health care landscape with David Charron of UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business and national faculty for innovation with the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health I-Corps programs. Participants will go through an ‘Innovation Sprint’ over the course of 90 minutes using the same processes and tools that successful health care startups have adopted to ideate, validate, and commercialize their ideas. Everyone is welcome, and no experience is necessary.
