Previous Speaker Bio
Dan Kaufman
Professor, Dept. of Medicine, Director of Cell Therapy Program
University of California San Diego Health
Chief Scientific Officer
Shoreline Biosciences
Dr. Kaufman is a native of Minnesota (USA). He did undergraduate work at Stanford University and then completed an MD and PhD (Immunology) at the Mayo Medical School and Mayo Graduate School in Rochester, MN. He then completed both residency training in Internal Medicine and fellowship training in Hematology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Kaufman was faculty at University of Minnesota from 2002- 2016. In 2016, Dr. Kaufman moved to UCSD to be a Professor in Department of Medicine, Division of Regenerative Medicine and Director of the Cell Therapy program.
Dr. Kaufman provides clinical care primarily for patients with blood cell cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma, with special interest in blood and marrow transplantation (BMT) and cell-based immunotherapies. Research in the Kaufman lab uses human pluripotent stem cells to understand the development of blood cells and related mesodermal cell populations. Specific projects investigate development of distinct cell populations from human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), including: hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells, lymphocytes, endothelial cells, cardio-vascular progenitor cells, and osteogenic (bone forming) cells. Recent studies have focused on the ability to use hESC and iPSC-derived natural killer (NK) cells to kill diverse types of human cancer cells both in vitro and in vivo. Additional work has used cellular engineering to enhance the anti-tumor activity of the hESC/iPSC-derived NK cells by expression of novel chimeric antigen receptors, stabilized expression of CD16, and other strategies. This work has now been translated into clinical trials for treatment of relapsed/refractory cancers- both hematologic malignancies and solid tumors. Dr. Kaufman also oversees the UCSD Advanced Cell Therapy Laboratory (ACTL) that provides GMP cell manufacturing to translate new anti-cancer cell-based therapies to clinic, such as NK cells, T cell-based therapies, MSCs, and other hESC/iPSC-derived cell populations.
Michael Milone
Associate Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Milone is an Associate Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine of the University of Pennsylvania. His research is focused on the development of engineered T cell immunotherapies. Dr. Milone is a co-inventor of tisagenlecleucel (CTL019, KymriahÒ), the first US FDA-approved gene therapy that employs T cells genetically modified with a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) targeting CD19 for the treatment of B-cell malignancies. His research has led to over 150 pending and granted patents filed in the area of CAR technology and engineered T cell therapy. In addition to a major focus on cancer, Dr. Milone’s research also explores applications of engineered T cells to non-malignant disease, most notably antibody-mediated autoimmune disease. This research led to the development of chimeric autoantibody receptor (CAAR) technology in collaboration with Dr. Aimee Payne at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Milone is a scientific co-founder and co-chair of the Scientific Advisory Board Cabaletta Bio (NASDAQ: CABA) and Verismo Therapeutics that are developing technologies developed in his laboratory.
Dr. Milone received his M.D. and Ph.D. in experimental pathology in 1999 from New Jersey Medical School and UMDNJ-Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. After an Internship in Internal Medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, he completed post-graduate medical training in clinical pathology, transfusion medicine and clinical chemistry/toxicology. In addition to his active research program, Dr. Milone is also a practicing clinical pathologist and Associate Director of the Toxicology Laboratory at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology
Dr. Chen received his medical school training from the Shandong University and his Ph.D. training from the University of Manitoba (Canada).
After a successful postdoctoral training at Harvard University, he joined the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania in 1995. He was a tenured Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at University of Pennsylvania until 2020 when he joined the Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology as its founding Dean of Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences. Dr. Chen is a renowned immunologist who has made lasting impacts on immunological research. He has published more than 160 research articles with a total citation >18000 and an H-index of 66 (Google Scholar); he is ranked by the Stanford University as one of the Top 1% Scientists for Lifetime Scientific Impact; he is an elected Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering, elected member of the Kunkel Society, recipient of the Colyton Prize for Autoimmune Research, and invited speaker for more than 100 international meetings. Dr. Chen’s major high-impact contributions to science include:
(I) He discovered a subset of T lymphocytes called regulatory T cells that secret transforming growth factor-beta and reported a paradigm-shifting concept that regulatory T cell development is specified by a lineage-specific “enhanceosome” (Science, 265: 1237, 1994 - cited for 2484 times; Immunity 31: 932, 2009 - cited for 406 times); these fundamental discoveries helped establish the current paradigm of regulatory T cell biology and made a major impact on our understanding of immune tolerance in general.
(II) He discovered crucial roles of TRAIL (tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand) in autoimmunity and liver failure (Nature Immunology 4:255, 2003; Journal of Clinical Investigation 113:58, 2004), and developed the first TRAIL-blocking antibody drug that is being tested in phase I clinical trials for treating hepatitis and liver failure, which afflict millions of people worldwide.
(III) He discovered and characterized three members of the TIPE (TNF-a-induced Protein 8-like) family (Cell 133:415, 2008; Nature Immunology 18: 1353, 2017): by genomic profiling of inflamed tissue, Dr. Chen’s laboratory identified, in 2008, three novel members of the TIPE family. They have since crystallized two of them and generated mice deficient in all of them. They discovered that TIPE family plays essential roles in colitis, encephalomyelitis, and carcinogenesis; They found that TIPE family is the transfer proteins of lipid second messengers PIP2 and PIP3. These ground-breaking discoveries helped deepen our understanding of the molecular pathways shared by inflammation and cancer, and provided new therapeutic opportunities for treating inflammatory and neoplastic diseases.
