PhD Graduate Student Literature Seminar – Dhruv Patel, PhD Student – Therapeutic Approaches to Inhibit Pathogenic T Helper 17 Cells in Autoimmune Diseases

KGI 535 Building - Room 152 535 Watson Drive, Claremont, CA, United States

Please join us for PhD Student, Dhruv Patel's Graduate Student Literature Seminar. Nearly 4% of world population suffers from autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis (MS), inflammatory bowel disease, allergy, and asthma. Several environmental and genetic factors play a role in these conditions. Certain autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, such as […]


PhD Literature Mastery Presentation – Nazia Rashid, PhD Student – “The Trials and Tribulations of Measuring the Value of Health Outcomes”

Please join us for this presentation by our own KGI Faculty member, Dr. Nazia Rashid, give her first PhD Milestone presentation! Health has been considered as a function of length of life and quality of life, thus, the quality-adjusted life-year (QALY) was developed as an attempt to combine the value of these attributes into a […]


Research Seminar Speaker Series – Dr. Jim Sterling – “Biocondensates: Membraneless Organelles that Organize Cellular Biochemistry”

Please join us for this presentation by our own KGI faculty member, Dr. Jim Sterling, Professor and PhD Program Director, Henry E. Riggs School of Applied Life Sciences Many macromolecular biocondensates have been observed as so-called intracellular membraneless organelles since their discovery in 2009 in the Hyman lab in Dresden Germany. Commercialization of drug discovery […]


Research Seminar Speaker Series – Dr. Subhrajit Bhattacharya – “Role of NMDARs in Various Diseases of the Brain and Targeted Drug Discovery”

Please join us for this presentation by our own KGI Faculty member, Dr. Subhrajit Bhattacharya, Assistant Professor, Pharmaceutical and Applied Life Sciences NMDARs (N-Methyl-D-Aspartate receptors) are an essential component of the excitation/inhibition complex in the brain that regulates precipitation of different neurodegenerative diseases. Dysregulated spatial and temporal expression of these receptors and their interactions with […]

Research Seminar Speaker Series-Dr. Animesh Ray-“The Noncoding RNA SPRIGHTLY Drives a Frequent Childhood Brain Cancer by Forcing Exon-Skipping”

Please join us for this presentation by our own KGI Faculty member, Dr. Animesh Ray, Professor of Systems Biology and Genomics Noncoding RNA (ncRNA) genes are even more conserved in evolution than are protein coding genes, suggesting that ncRNAs play important biological functions. One such ncRNA is SPRIGHTLY, which we had previously shown to be […]


PhD Literature Mastery Presentation – Ana Mena Amores, PhD Student – “Development of a Transient AAV Manufacturing Platform”

Please join us for PhD Student, Ana Mena Amores' PhD Literature Mastery Presentation. Adeno-associated virus (AAV) vectors are the leading platform for gene delivery for many diseases like retinal disorders and spinal muscular atrophy. Recent developments on the production of AAV capsids, vector design optimization, and cell culture techniques have contributed substantially to the growth […]


PhD Dissertation Literature Mastery Presentation – Yi-Chun Lin, PhD Student – “Investigating Voltage-Gated Potassium Channel by Computational Approach”

Please join us for PhD Student Yi-Chun Lin, Research Assistant, Western University give her PhD Literature Mastery presentation. The voltage gated channel family is the third largest class of signal transduction proteins following GPCR and protein kinases. The activation of the voltage gated channel is by the change of the membrane potential. There are two […]


Research Seminar Speaker Series – Jerome Lacroix, Western University – “How do you feel? Sensing mechanical forces with PIEZO channels”

KGI 121 Building - Room 1111 121 Bucknell Ave., Claremont, United States

Please join us for our Research Seminar Series Speaker, Jerome Lacroix, Associate Professor, Western University presentation on:  Channel proteins catalyze the passive transport of solutes across cell membranes. These rapid transmembrane flows act as cellular signals in numerous biological functions. Channel opening is typically triggered by the presence of a specific stimulus, which is detected […]
