MizzouForward Keynote – Protein ubiquitination in the nervous system: Lesson learned from Arc
November 8th | 3:30pm - 4:30pm
Acuff Auditorium (MA217) - School of Medicine
Join us for “Protein ubiquitination in the nervous system: Lesson learned from Arc" a keynote presentation by School of Medicine-Pathology & Anatomical Sciences, MizzouForward faculty candidate, Dr. Angela Mabb. Dr. Mabb will present on her research for approximately 40-minutes with a 20-minute question and answer session to follow.
Dr. Angela Mabb is an Associate Professor, Second Century Initiative (2CI) scholar in the Neuroscience Institute, Center for Behavioral Neuroscience at Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA. Dr. Mabb earned her B.S., with great distinction, as a dual major in Chemistry and Bio-Molecular science from Clarkson University, Potsdam, NY and her PhD in Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology from the University of Wisconsin in Madison, WI.
In neuroscience, we have commonly been led to believe that the expression of genes and buildup of proteins supports every aspect of neural function. However, what has been largely ignored is the concept related to the removal or breakdown of proteins, which is arguably equally essential but not well understood. The major theme of Dr. Mabb’s research is to elucidate the complex code of a posttranslational modification called ubiquitination in nervous system function and disease. She seeks to gain a basic understanding of ubiquitin pathways in the nervous system, which may ultimately allow for the design of therapeutic intervention strategies for neurological disorders associated with ubiquitin dysfunction.
