Upcoming Center Seminars

Date:

Monday, October 24, 2022, 10:00 - 11:00 am, PT 

Location:

Online Only: Zoom Meeting
Password: 730337

Speaker:

Malin Johansson, Ph.D.
Associate Professor
Department of Medical Biochemistry and Cell Biology
University of Gothenburg
Göteborg Sweden

Title:

"MUCUS, A COMPLEX GUT BARRIER"

Speaker’s Research Interests: Dr. Johansson’s key interest is to understand the complex protective system of the gut with a specific focus on the secreted mucus and its role in protection and health. Patients with intestinal inflammation, such as ulcerative colitis, have defects in this protective barrier. Dr. Johansson's research group is studying how mucus and goblet cells that produce mucus, function to gain a better understanding of the system to enable improved treatment of intestinal diseases.


Date:

Monday, November 28, 2022, 12:00 - 1:00 pm, PT 

Location:

Title:

TBD

Speaker’s Research Interests: Dr. Garcia-Tsao’s research has been mainly patient-oriented in the area of the complications of cirrhosis related to portal hypertension, specifically varices, variceal hemorrhage, ascites, and spontaneous bacterial peritonitis. With advances in science, Dr. Garcia-Tsao has different measures to better treat the complications of cirrhosis.   Her current focus is to prevent these complications from even occurring or to induce cirrhosis regression.


Date:

Monday, December 12, 2022, 12:00 - 1:00 pm, PT 

Location:

Speaker:

Nicholas O. Davidson, MD, DSc. 
John E. and Adaline Simon Endowed Professor of Medicine,
Director, Digestive Disease Research Core Center,
Chief, Division of Gastroenterology,
Washington University School of Medicine
St. Louis, MO

Title:

TBD

Speaker’s Research Interests: Dr. Davidson’s laboratory is interested in complex lipid trafficking from cells of the small intestine and liver. They are interested in several abundantly expressed genes including apolipoproteinB (apoB) and microsomal triglyceride transfer protein (Mttp), both of which are indispensable for lipid export from enterocytes and hepatocytes. Dr. Davidson’s laboratory is also interested in the role of a major cytoplasmic lipid binding protein, L-Fabp, which regulates fatty acid trafficking in the liver and small intestine.
