Virtual Seminar – Dan Doherty, MD, PhD – “The Joubert Syndrome Hindbrain Malformation: 40 Genes, 1 Cilium, 1 Mechanism?”

April 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Dan Doherty, MD, PhD

Dr. Doherty's research interests focus on hindbrain malformations as a way to understand human brain development and common disorders such as intellectual disability, autism, ataxic cerebral palsy and even mental health disorders such as schizophrenia. The hindbrain regulates basic functions (level of consciousness, heart rate, respiratory rate), coordinates balance, limb and eye movements, as well as having possible roles in cognition and emotional regulation.

Virtual Seminar – Michael Cahill, PhD – “Identifying Environmental and Biochemical Contributors to the Etiology of Neuropsychiatric Disorders”

October 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Over the past 15 years, my research has focused on delineating the molecular and biochemical mechanisms that regulate dendritic spine plasticity, and in particular, understanding how alterations in synaptic plasticity contribute to specific behavioral phenotypes relevant to the study of neuropsychiatric disorders.

Seminar – Robert Lipinski, PhD – “New Approaches for Solving the Gene-Environment Puzzle and Preventing Human Birth Defects”

October 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The focus of our research is to understand how genetic and environmental factors interact to cause birth defects of the face and brain. We are particularly interested in craniofacial malformations like cleft lip and palate and holoprosencephaly because of their prevalence and serious consequences for affected individuals and their families.

Seminar – Shu-Bing Qian, PhD – “Detecting Translational Noise by Super Resolution Ribosome Profiling”

October 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Most of the research work in Qian's laboratory is broadly interdisciplinary, with a primary emphasis on protein synthesis, nutrient signaling pathway, and stress response. Using biochemical, genetic, and cell biological approach, the Qian laboratory investigates translational control of gene expression, molecular mechanisms of adaptive stress response, dynamic mRNA modifications, and the implications in human health and diseases. Specific disease aspects include but are not limited to, diabetes, cancer, aging and neurodegenerative disorders.
