Synapse Formation and Plasticity: Pre- or Post- Synaptic Mechanisms.

Li Xiaoming MD/PhD

Assistant Research Scientist
Institute of Molecular Medicine and Genetics
Medical College of Georgia

USA

摘要:

The human brain contains billions of neurons. They are specialized to receive and integrate a host of electrical and biochemical signals. This highly efficient communication among neurons is made possible by synapses - contacts formed between two neurons. Despite significant progress in our understanding of the anatomic structures of synapses, little is known about mechanisms of synapse formation and function, specifically, responses to pathological change.

应聘人简介:

Dr. Li received his MD and Ph.D degrees from the First Military Medical University in 2003. He then did his research at the Medical College of Georgia in US as a postdoctoral fellow from 2005 to 2007. He was promoted to assistant research scientist in Nov. of 2007. He received numerous awards and had many papers published in the top journals of his field, including first author papers in Neuron, J Neuroscience, and Nature Neuroscience.

应聘演讲2

Molecular Mechanism of Microbial Pathogenesis -- Structure and Function of Microbial Toxins

Sun Jianjun PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow

Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics

Harvard Medical School

USA

摘要:

The bacterial infectious diseases are the consequences of host-pathogen interaction, and bacterial protein toxins play pivotal roles in microbial pathogenesis. Study of protein toxins is of great significances not only for prevention and treatment of infectious diseases, but also for understanding of fundamental biological processes of life. This seminar is going to present researches on Pseudomonas aeruginosa Type-III cytotoxins and anthrax toxin, with the former focusing on identification of host targets of the toxin ExoT while the latter focusing on mechanism of anthrax toxin pore formation and membrane translocation. In the end, future research directions are proposed, with an emphasis on the needs of national bio-security.

应聘人简介:

From 1991 to 1998, Dr. Jianjun Sun studied at the College of Life Sciences, China Agriculture University (former Beijing Agriculture University) and was granted with a BS and a MS degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. He went further to join the Interdisciplinary PhD program at Medical College of Wisconsin and studied microbial pathogenesis of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in the laboratory of Professor Joseph T. Barbieri, and obtained his PhD degree in 2004. Currently, he is a postdoc fellow in the laboratory of Professor John Collier at Harvard Medical School, studying the molecular mechanism of anthrax toxin pore formation and membrane translocation. First author papers in JBC, Nat Struct Mol Biol and PNAS.
