presents, "Hormonal regulation of gene expression defines sex-variable biology" Talk abstract:  My lab studies how nuclear hormone receptors modulate gene expression in the brain at single-cell resolution, and how this affects development of and activity within circuits that mediate specific behaviors. We anticipate that the hormone-regulated genes we have identified will contribute to established sex differences in the incidence and etiology of neurological and psychiatric disorders. Hosted by:  Simona Sarafinovska, Din Selmanovic, and Genetics trainees & postdocs In-person only:  Connor…

June 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

"Expanding mechanisms and therapeutic targets for neurodegenerative disease" Hosted by: Dr. Jeffrey Milbrandt Location:  Connor Auditorium (FLTC) Talk abstract:  Human neurodegenerative diseases are associated with the accumulation of protein aggregates. I will describe recent efforts using genetic modifier screens in model systems and human genetics to define the mechanisms by which misfolded human disease proteins contribute to neurodegeneration. These studies have revealed new targets for therapeutic intervention.
