Upcoming Seminars

Seminar Series

 

Teresa Wood, PhD

Rena Warshow Endowed Chair in Multiple Sclerosis and Professor in the Department of Pharmacology, Physiology & Neurosciences, Rutgers

Title:  "IGF-II and Insulin Receptor Signaling in Adult Neural Stem Cell Homeostasis"

Date:  Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Time: 10:00 am

Location:  A3-924 A&B, London Regional Cancer Program, London Health Sciences Centre - Victoria Hospital

Research Interests: Focus on determining how growth factors and signaling pathways interact to promote growth, survival and differentiation of breast epithelial and neural progenitor cells.

 

Jason Lerch, PhD

Senior Scientist, the Hospital for Sick Children and Associate Professor, Department of Medical Biophysics, University of Toronto

Title:  "The Surprising Role of the Cerebellum in Autism"

Date:  Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

Time: 10:00 am

Location:  A3-924 A&B, London Regional Cancer Program, London Health Sciences Centre - Victoria Hospital

Research Interests: Research program is focused on how the brain changes its shape. For this we use both mouse models as well as human subjects combined with imaging and advanced image processing techniques to understand subtle changes in neuroanatomy.

 

Dr. David Simmons, PhD

Senior Lecturer, Developmental Biology, School of Biomedical Sciences, University of Queensland

Title:  "Please pass the sulfate:  the role of placental and brain sulfate transport in two critical developmental windows"

Date:  Thursday, April 20, 2017

Time:  10:30 am

Location:  C3-301B, LHSC - Victoria Campus

Research Interests:  Placental Development

 

Amy Ralston, PhD

James K. Billman, Jr., MD Endowed Professor and Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Michigan State University

Title:  "Parallel Programs Regulate Pluripotent and Extraembryonic Stem Cell Progenitors in Mamalian Development and in Reprogramming"

Date:  Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Time: 10:00 am

Location:  A3-924 A&B, London Regional Cancer Program, London Health Sciences Centre - Victoria Hospital

Research Interests:   My research is focused on discovering how genes regulate stem cell behavior in the context of the mammalian embryo. My long-term goals are to apply lessons from the mouse embryo to devise innovative stem cell therapies and improve pregnancy outcomes.
