Seminar - Molecular signaling pathways in maternal diabetes-induced neural tube defects

12:00 AM - 11:00 AM on Tuesday, January 8, 2013
Location: VTRC-Arlington, Rm. 4-024

Speaker: Prof. Peixin Yang, Department of OB/GYN & Reprod Sci,
University of Maryland School of Medicine

Prof. Yang will talk about his research on molecular signaling that leads to diabetic embryopathy. Some of his newly published work will be discussed in the talk: e.g., Oxidative stress-induced proapoptotic signaling leading to diabetic embryopathy; endoplasmic reticulum stress as interdependent and reciprocal causation in diabetic embryopathy. More discussion will be given to the future direction such as systems biology on this exciting research topic.
