John A. Lynch Lecture: "Wnt Signaling and Stem Cell Control"

-

Location: 101 Jordan Hall of Science

Roel Nusse (Lynch Lecture)

Roel Nusse
Professor of Developmental Biology,  Virginia and Daniel K. Ludwig Professor of Cancer Research
Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute,  Stanford University

A major focus of the Nusse lab is Wnt signaling, which is essential for regulating stem cells. How this is achieved is far from clear and is the subject of studies in the lab, both in vivo and in cell culture. The types of questions that the Nusse lab investigates are: What role do Wnt-responsive cells play in tissue maintenance and regeneration? How is the expression of Wnt signals regulated, in normal and injured tissues? 
Does oriented Wnt signaling polarize asymmetrically dividing stem cells, which plays a central role in tissue homeostasis and regeneration.

Introduction to Hospice and Palliative Care course (SC 43350)

-

Location: 105 Jordan Hall of Science

Intro to Hospice and Palliative Care

This one-credit pass/fail course is designed to provide undergraduate preprofessional students with an introductory understanding of palliative and hospice care.  It is designed specifically for undergraduates interested in careers in healthcare, but can also be useful to students aspiring to work in other helping professions.  This course will provide students with an in-depth understanding of palliative and hospice care, focusing on how this care is given in the current healthcare system.

Science Exploration Series: "New Developments in Fighting Tuberculosis"

-

Location: 101 Jordan Hall of Science

Jeff Schorey

Tuberculosis (TB) takes the lives of approximately 1.4 million people per year. Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacteria responsible for TB, is the leading cause of death by a bacterial pathogen. This presentation will discuss why this pathogen is so deadly and what approaches Notre Dame researchers are using to develop better vaccines and diagnostics to combat TB.

Science Exploration Series: "Radioactivity in the Environment: What's the Risk?"

-

Location: 101 Jordan Hall of Science

Amy Hixon

Uranium and thorium are naturally-occurring radioactive elements that are widely distributed among rocks and minerals.  However, most actinide elements are present in the environment as a result of nuclear weapons production and testing, nuclear fuel disposition, and nuclear fuel cycle accidents (e.g., Chermobyl, Fukushima Daiichi).  These actinide elements pose a long-term environmental concern due to their toxicity and long half-lives.  In this talk, Professor Hixon will discuss what the Environmental Radiochemistry group is doing to understand and predict actinide mobility in the environment.

XVth International Workshop Molecular and Cellular Biology of Plasminogen Activation

Location: Notre Dame Global Gateway, Rome, Italy

This meeting has been held in alternate years since 1985, and is unique in that it is almost exclusively abstract-driven.  Therefore, the majority of the presentations are selected from submitted abstracts.  This allows for the emphasis of the meeting to be on new and unpublished research, which fosters productive interchange of ideas between attendees of the meeting.
