Teach Me in 10 – Molecular and Cellular Multiplexing With Professor George Church

Video   Jul 09, 2020


In this instalment of Teach Me in 10, we're joined by a scientist who, for many, requires little introduction – Professor George Church.

Church is professor of genetics at Harvard Medical School, a founding member of the Wyss Institute, and director of PersonalGenomes.org. He is best known for pioneering the fields of personal genomics and synthetic biology, developing the first methods for the first genome sequence. He has also contributed to nearly all next-generation sequencing methods. Church's team invented CRISPR for human stem cell genome editing and other synthetic biology technologies and applications.

Church is director of IARPA and NIH BRAIN Projects and the National Institutes of Health Center for Excellence in Genomic Science and has co-authored more than 515 papers and 130 patent publications and one book, “Regenesis”. His honors include Franklin Bower Laureate for Achievement in Science, the Time 100, and election to the National Academies of Sciences and Engineering. 

In this instalment of Teach Me in 10, Professor Church treats us to a topic that he hasn't actually presented on publicly before: molecular and cellular multiplexing.

The Immune System Explained


Every second of your life you are under attack. Bacteria, viruses, spores and more living stuff wants to enter your body and use its resources for itself. The immune system is a powerful army of cells that fights like a T-Rex on speed and sacrifices itself for your survival. Without it you would die in no time. This sounds simple but the reality is complex, beautiful and just awesome. An animation of the immune system.


COVID Sweat Sensor Catches Your Immune System Before It Goes Berserk


Doctors recognized that patients who developed a surge of pro-inflammatory immune proteins, also known as a “cytokine storm,” following SARS-CoV-2 infection were often the sickest and at the greatest risk of dying. Researchers have developed a wristwatch-like device that can continuously track cytokine levels through a patient’s sweat, allowing doctors time to proactively administer medications like steroids if they see cytokine levels rising.
