Restoring Lives: How 3-D Mapping of the Spinal Cord Can Improve Patient Outcomes 

More than 1.4 million Americans are living with spinal cord injuries, the second leading cause of paralysis in the United States (after stroke).  These injuries cause tremendous disability and cost billions of dollars annually to treat. Today, when a person suffers a spinal cord injury, physicians focus on alleviating pain and stabilizing the bones around the damage. The spinal cord itself isn’t targeted since it’s considered irreparable. As such,most victims have little hope of ever walking again.

 

But what if that could change?  What if paralyzed patients could walk again? 

These are questions that drive Seattle Science Foundation clinicians and researchers, Dr. Rod Oskouian and Dr. Shane Tubbs, who have embarked on a bold 5-year, $15 million initiative to create a comprehensive 3-dimensional spinal cord atlas. Read more about our keynote

Delving into the Human Immune System’s “Memory”: A closer look at the Adaptive Biotechnologies and Microsoft Partnership

The human immune system is wondrous. In a constant state of flux, it adapts to myriad disease perturbations while simultaneously creating a “memory” of each invading pathogen for future reference and use. What if we could delve into this memory and get a comprehensive look into a person’s health history? What if we could detect the disease signals before the disease takes hold?

Join us for a fire-side conversation with Chad Robins, CEO, Adaptive Biotechnologies, and Peter Lee, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft AI and Research, as they embark on a new partnership to translate genetic code into simple blood-based diagnostics, and how they hope to make the resulting information accessible to people around the world.
