Adult Enteric Neurogenesis: Implications for gut and brain in health and disease
Dr. Subhash Kulkarni will be visiting us on Sepetember 4th, 2018. Dr. Kulkarni is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Johns Hopkins University and his work is focused on the cellular and molecular biology of the development and maintenance of the adult Enteric Nervous System. Dr. Kulkarni’s work shows that the adult Enteric Nervous System is maintained by a continual robust turnover of neurons, where Enteric Neural Stem Cells constantly effect neurogenesis to replace neurons that are continually lost due to apoptosis. Using a plethora of tools such as lineage fate-mapping, cell culture and increasingly single cell studies, Dr. Kulkarni is studying the molecular and cellular pathways of homeostasis and neuronal specification in the adult enteric nervous system in models of health and disease. See his work here.
Join us on Tuesday, September 4, 2018. 4PM in GSRB1 4002.
