OBS! Participate physical in Arvid Carlsson lecture Hall at Academicum or online through zoom. No registration required.
Welcome to the Sahlgrenska Academy Science Seminars, a series of seminars on Thursdays at 15-16. The seminars are, from November 2021, conducted both physical in Arvid Carlsson lecture hall at Academicum and online through zoom.
Here is the link to the webinar: https://gu-se.zoom.us/j/61017564885
The seminars are open to anyone interested in taking part of scientific breakthroughs and projects in the medicine and health science field. Scientists, students and other staff from GU, VGR and other organisations with the common interest of medicine and health science, welcome!
Speaker: Nektarios Tavenarakis, Professor of Molecular Systems Biology; Medical School, University of Crete
Topic: The role of mitophagy in neuronal quality
Despite its minimalistic nervous system, C. elegans exhibits a rich repertoire of sensory capacities and behaviors. Such wide spectrum of easily discernible phenotypes can be exploited using the sophisticated genetics and molecular biology tools developed for the worm, to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying the wonderful faculties of the nervous system. We build on these exceptional features for our studies, focusing on the molecular mechanisms of necrotic cell death in neurodegeneration and senescent decline, the molecular mechanisms of sensory transduction and integration by the nervous system, the interplay between cellular metabolism and ageing, and the development of novel genetic tools for C. elegans research.
