Grand Rounds – Dr. George Murphy
This month’s Grand Rounds was led by Dr. George Murphy, an associate professor and co-director of Center for Regenerative Medicine (CReM) at BUSM. As one of the leading researchers at CReM, professor Murphy has been developing stem cell based platforms to study various hematopoietic diseases and potential clinical treatments. In this Grand Rounds talk, professor Murphy shared many insights on the clinical need for stem cell based sickle cell therapies and the current state of the field. Besides the scientific knowledge, professor Murphy also shared his views on the role of medical ethics in upcoming genetic modification therapies and the unique role physician-scientists will play in development of these therapies. We are thankful to have Dr. Murphy for our Grand Rounds this month and we hope to invite him for further discussion when opportunity arises.
