Flexible Identity of Peripheral Sensory Neurons After Axonal Injury
THURSDAY, JANUARY 14th, 2021
Dr. William Renthal, Director of Research at the John R. Graham Headache Center at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Assistant Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School, will present our next webinar, “Flexible Identity of Peripheral Sensory Neurons After Axonal Injury.” Primary somatosensory neurons are specialized to transmit specific types of sensory information through differences in cell size, myelination and the expression of distinct receptors and ion channels, which together define their transcriptional and functional identity. By profiling sensory ganglia at single-cell resolution, Dr. Renthal’s team discovered that all somatosensory neuronal subtypes undergo a transcriptional response to peripheral nerve injury that both promotes axonal regeneration and suppresses cell identity.

Chronic Orofacial Pain: From Where We Have Been to Where We Will Go
THURSDAY, JANUARY 28th, 2021
Dr. Carol Meloto, General Dentist and Assistant Dentistry Professor at McGill University, will present “Chronic Orofacial Pain: From Where We’ve Been to Where We’ll Go” on January 28th at 8AM PST. In her hour-long webinar, Dr. Meloto will discuss how our understanding of the mechanisms underlying the risk of having and of developing temporomandibular disorders—the most frequent forms of chronic orofacial pain—have evolved in the past decade. She will also discuss her current work that is focused on applying these recent advances to improve diagnosis and prognosis for chronic orofacial pain patients. Click here to learn more and register.
Human Heart Slices as the Next Generation of Cardiotoxicity Testing Platform
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 25th, 2021
Join us on Thursday, February 25th, for our webinar, “Human Heart Slices as the Next Generation of Cardiotoxicity Testing Platform,” presented by Dr. Tamer Mohamed, Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of Louisville’s Institute of Molecular Cardiology. The limited availability of human heart tissue and its complex cell composition are major limiting factors for the reliable testing of drug efficacy and toxicity. Recently, Dr. Tamer and his team developed functional human and pig heart slice biomimetic culture systems that preserve the viability and functionality of 300 µm heart slices for up to six days. They also tested the reliability of this culture system for testing the cardiotoxicity of anti-cancer drugs. Click here to learn more about this webinar and register.
Join us on Thursday, March 11th, at 8am PST for our webinar “Translational Pain Research: Targeting Sensitization,” presented by Dr. Rob Gereau, Vice-Chair for Research at the Washington University Pain Center. In this hour-long webinar, Dr. Gereau will describe preclinical studies in rodents identifying key nodes of sensitization in pain pathways that his group is targeting for the development of potential new analgesics. The use of human sensory neurons as a critical translational research tool is highlighted. Click here to learn more and register.
