UND faculty, staff and students are invited to attend the Annual Host-Pathogen CoBRE Symposium to be held at the University of North Dakota Gorecki Alumni Center.
This event aims to promote interaction and collaboration among researchers in the area and provide opportunities for learning about cutting-edge tools, approaches, and resources to advance their research in broad areas of infection and inflammation as it applies to human disease. The symposium will bring together experts studying cellular and molecular mechanisms of pathogen virulence and host responses in acute infections and chronic disease conditions.
Opening remarks by Dr. Joshua Wynne, Dean of the School of Medicine & Health Sciences, will be made at 8:30am.
Dr. Elaine Tuomanen – St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital: "Expanding bacterial signaling vocabulary from inflammation to neuroproliferation."
Dr. Anjana Rao – La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology: "Epigenetic and Transcriptional programs in T cells during anti-viral and anti-cancer responses."
Dr. Nadeem Khan – University of North Dakota: "A double edged of host type 17 immunity in pneumoccal infections."
Dr. Ali Divan - University of North Dakota: “Neurocognitive and behavioral changes in a mouse model of neuroborreliosis”
Dr. Matthew Nilles - University of North Dakota: “Utilization of a type III secretion system needle protein to improve the acellular pertussis vaccine”
Dr. Atul Sharma - University of North Dakota: “Modulation of Neutrophil Extracellular Traps (NETs): Therapeutic Intervention”
In addition, investigators from the University of North Dakota will be presenting their research related to infection and immunity. A poster session will be held late afternoon which will showcase clinical and basic science research carried out by faculty as well as graduate and undergraduate students.
The closing remarks will be made at 2:15pm by Dr. Grant McGimpsey, Vice President for Research & Economic Development and Dean of the School of Graduate Studies.
Participants are encouraged to submit an abstract of their poster presentation at the time of on-line registration.
