Brain@Wayne Seminar with Dr. Seema Tiwari-Woodruff, University of California Riverside, School of Medicine
February 10 2016 at 3:00 PM
Scott Hall
The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host the next Brain@Wayne seminar on Wednesday, February 10, 2016 from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m.  The guest speaker will be Dr. Seema Tiwari-Woodruff, associate professor of Biomedical Sciences at the University of California Riverside School of Medicine. The seminar will be held at Scott Hall in the Margherio Conference Room.  Dr. Tiwari-Woodruff will present "A window into the diseased brain: Dysfunction and Repair of the Visual Pathway in a Mouse Model of Multiple Sclerosis." The seminar is free and open to the entire university community; registration is requested. Abstract: Deterioration of visual perception is a common presenting symptom during the development of Multiple sclerosis (MS) disease, as well as one of the criterion used by clinicians in their diagnosis of MS. However, the mechanisms and pathways underlying functional changes in visual perception are poorly understood during the pathogenesis of MS.  Our long-term goal is to understand the pathology of MS and develop more effective targets for MS drugs, and treatment plans based on progression of the disease. A reception will immediately follow Dr. Tiwari-Woodruff's talk.

Water@Wayne Seminar with Dr. Thomas Bridgeman, University of Toledo -- Harmful Algal Blooms in Lake Erie
February 11 2016 at 2:30 PM
Welcome Center
The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host the next Water@Wayne seminar on Thursday, February 11, 2016 at 2:30 p.m. in the Welcome Center auditorium. The guest speaker will be Dr. Thomas Bridgeman, associate professor of Environmental Sciences at the University of Toledo.  He will present, "Harmful Algal Blooms in Lake Erie." The seminar is free and open to the public; registration is requested. Abstract: Toxic cyanobacteria have been increasing in freshwater bodies worldwide, resulting in Cyanobacterial Harmful Algal Blooms (CHABs). This presentation will trace the history of HABs in Lake Erie, in particular the return of Microcystis sp. blooms to the western basin since the mid-1990s, corresponding to changing watershed land use practices and weather patterns over the past two decades. The ecology of CHABs and role of limiting nutrients will be discussed as well as efforts to minimize the impact of CHABs through bloom prediction, early-warning systems, water treatment practices, and watershed management. A short reception will immediately follow Dr. Bridgeman's presentation.
