Neuroscience Department Seminar Series: Daniela Schiller, Ph.D., Mount Sinai (4/26/2019)

Start Date: 4/26/2019 Start Time: 11:00 AM
End Date: 4/26/2019 End Time: 12:00 PM
Dear Colleagues, You are cordially invited to the Neuroscience Department Seminar on Friday, April 26 at 11 a.m. in N315 auditorium, Alkek (Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, 3rd floor). Invited guest-speaker is Dr. Daniela Schiller, Associate Professor in the Departments of Psychiatry and Neuroscience at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Her seminar is titled “Navigating Mental Space”. Faculty host is Dr. Michael Beauchamp, Professor in the Departments of Neurosurgery and Neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine. Attached please find the seminar flyer. Dr. Daniela Schiller is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Neuroscience at the Friedman Brain Institute at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, where she directs the affective neuroscience laboratory. Her research is focused on the flexibility of emotional memory and the representation of social space. Because the environment we live in is constantly changing, our learned emotional responses need to be continuously updated to appropriately reflect current circumstances. Understanding the neural mechanisms that make such emotional flexibility may shed light on the impairments leading to anxiety disorders and may also promote new forms of treatment. BCM Neuroscience seminars are open to all members of the neuroscience community at the Texas Medical Center. Best regards, Sheila Gurwitch

Dear Colleagues and Invited Guests, You are cordially invited to the Neuroscience Department Seminar on Friday, May 3rd at 11 a.m. in N315 auditorium, Alkek (Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, 3rd floor). Invited guest-speaker is Dr. Laura Feltri, Acting Director of the Hunter James Kelly Research Institute and Professor of Biochemistry and Neurology at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at State University of New York at Buffalo. The title of Dr. Feltri’s seminar is “Conditional mutagenesis studies challenge the dogma in the Lysosomal Storage Disease Globoid Cell Leukodystrophy”. Faculty host is Dr. Hyun Kyoung Lee, Assistant Professor in the Departments of Pediatrics, Neurology and Neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine and the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute. Attached please find the seminar flyer. Dr. Feltri received her medical degree from the University of Milano, Italy. She completed her internship in Medicine and Residency in Neurology in the San Raffaele Hospital in Milano. She was a neuroscience post-doctoral fellow at Thomas Jefferson University and at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Feltri worked from 1993 to 2011 at the San Raffaele Scientific Institute of Milano, Italy, where she was the Head of the Unit of Neuro-Glia. Dr. Feltri’s scientific interest is on myelin and myelin diseases. Together with the laboratory of Lawrence Wrabetz, she developed the first Cre transgene that targets specifically Schwann cells, and pioneered conditional transgenesis to understand the role of extracellular matrix components and their receptors in developing and pathological peripheral nerves. Her laboratory has identified the diverse roles and many of the downstream signals for laminin receptors in nerve development. The NIH, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Hunter Hope Foundation, Charcot-Marie-tooth Association, Telethon Italy and the European Community have funded her research and she has authored more than 100 peer-reviewed publications. Dr. Feltri has mentored many graduate and MD-PhD students with several of them achieving independent faculty and other leadership positions, and has served the clinical and scientific community on the Board of the Peripheral Nerve Society, the medical board of the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association, as Member of the Cellular and Molecular Biology of Glia NIH and National Multiple Sclerosis Study Sessions and as Editorial member of the Journal of Neuroscience, Glia and Experimental Neurology.

End Date: 5/10/2019 End Time: 12:00 PM
Dear Colleagues, You are cordially invited to the Neuroscience Department Seminar on Friday, May 10 at 11 a.m. We will meet in N315 auditorium in Alkek building, located in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, 3rd floor. Invited guest-speaker is Dr. Michelle Monje, Associate Professor of Neurology and, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery, Psychiatry, Pathology and Pediatrics at Stanford University. The title of Dr. Monje’s seminar is “Myelin plasticity in health and disease”. Her faculty host is Dr. Jeffrey Noebels, Professor of Neurology, Neuroscience, and Molecular and Human Genetics, Director of the Blue Bird Circle Developmental Neurogenetics Laboratory, and Vice Chair for Research in the Department of Neurology at BCM and the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute. Please find attached the flyer announcement for Dr. Monje’s May 10th seminar. Michelle Monje, MD, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Neurology with courtesy appointments in Neurosurgery, Psychiatry, Pathology and Pediatrics. She received her M.D. and Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Stanford University. As a Ph.D. student, under the mentorship of Dr. Theo Palmer, Dr. Monje studied microenvironmental determinants of neural stem cell fate choice. Dr. Monje completed her residency training in neurology at the Massachusetts General Hospital/Brigham and Women's Hospital/Harvard Medical School Partners program, and then returned to Stanford for a clinical fellowship in pediatric neuro-oncology and a post-doctoral fellowship with Dr. Philip Beachy. During her postdoctoral work, she focused on the neurodevelopmental origins of a devastating pediatric brain tumor called diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG). Dr. Monje’s research program studies the molecular and cellular mechanisms of postnatal neurodevelopment and pediatric gliomagenesis. This includes microenvironmental influences on neural precursor cell fate choice in normal neurodevelopment and in disease states. Areas of emphasis include neuron-glial interactions, developmental and adaptive myelination, and microenvironmental contributions to glioma pathogenesis. As a practicing neurologist and neuro-oncologist, Dr. Monje is particularly interested in the identifying novel therapeutic strategies for pediatric gliomas, the neural regulation of cancer progression and the neurological consequences of cancer treatment. BCM Neuroscience seminars are open to all members of the neuroscience community at the Texas Medical Center.
