Radiomics and deep learning in medical imaging for precision medicine with Maryellen L. Giger

Date: 
Apr 17 2017 - 4:00pm

Adapting the Precision Medicine Initiative into imaging research includes studies in both discovery and translation in order to enable the conversion of current radiological interpretation from that of the “average patient” to the precise interpretation and patient-care management decisions specific to the individual. The goal is to individually detect disease, and then give the right person the right treatment at the right time.

Super-resolution microscopy marries electron microscopy with Erik M. Jorgensen

Date: 
Oct 3 2017 - 3:00pm


Erik Jorgensen studies the molecular mechanisms of synaptic function. Genetic screens and characterization are performed in the nematode C. elegans and then validated in rodents. In addition, his laboratory is developing methods for optimizing genetic screens and manipulating the genome of the worm.  

His laboratory dissects synaptic function in the simplest organism with a well-defined nervous system – the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. The group identifies mutant worms with defects in synaptic proteins by forward genetic screens for worm mutants with behavioral defects or generates directed mutations in known synaptic genes.  Then they use biochemistry, electrophysiology, fluorescence microscopy and electron microscopy to examine the role of the protein in the synapse from as many angles possible. Based on inferences from the mutant phenotype, they develop a hypothesis for how the protein functions. Predictions for structural variants are made from these models and tested in transgenic animals. These results can be used as a springboard for studies in other systems, linking biochemical models of protein function and studies of the vertebrate brain.

Work in the Jorgensen laboratory can be classified into four categories: neurotransmitters, exocytosis, endocytosis, and genome editing.
