SciNaPPS Seminar: Molecular mechanisms of notch-mediated neuronal cell death in ischaemic stroke
30 March 2012
SciNaPPS - Science, Neurology, and Psychiatry/Psychology Seminars - presents this free seminar on notch-mediated neuronal cell death in ischaemic stroke at the Brain and Mind Research Institute.
Presented by Dr Thiruma Arumugam, ARC Future Fellow in Experimental Stroke and Inflammation Research at the University of Queensland.
Notch-1 (Notch) is a cell surface receptor that regulates cell-fate decisions in the developing nervous system, and it may also have roles in synaptic plasticity and cell death in the adult brain.
Our recent findings suggest that notch signaling in neurons, glia and NSCs may be involved in pathological changes that occur in disorders such as stroke.
Studies of animal models suggest the potential of agents that target notch signaling as therapeutic interventions for several different brain disorders.
Time: 3.30pm - 4.30pm
Location: Level 5 Lecture Theatre, 94 Mallet St, Camperdown.
