Multiple lines of evidence support the hypothesis that the cannabinoids, THC and CBD, do more than act on specific GPCRs. Recent evidence in my laboratory points to how cannabinoids drive broad changes in the lipidome with data suggesting that many of the changes are dependent on the enzyme NAPE-PLD.
Join a CEE Alumni Association Board member for a discussion on how to put the nerves to bed. The presentation is designed to explore the interview from both points of view: the employer’s and the prospective employee’s. Develop question answering strategies and skills that will help you leave a great impression on the interview team. For CEE at Illinois students.
"The temporal patterning mechanisms in Drosophila medulla neuroblasts." Li Lab
Speaker: Stephanie Wehner, QuTech and TU Delft
We found precise responses to orientations in mouse visual cortex in 50,000 neuron recordings. To understand neural recordings from more complex experiments, we developed an embedding algorithm called Rastermap, which qualitatively and quantitatively outperforms t-SNE and UMAP.
Paula Pienton, CEE Alumni Association President, will focus on an often-overlooked aspect of one’s career: workplace negotiation. Learn about common pitfalls of workplace negotiation, how men and women negotiate differently, and how you can translate communication skills into an increased salary and better benefits. For CEE at Illinois students.
"Identifying active nuclear niche(s) and deciphering spatial positioning of chromatin around them." Belmont Lab
"TBA." Supriya Prasanth Lab
Speaker: Lindsay LeBlanc, University of Alberta
As the most numerous non-neuronal cells, astrocytes tile the entire central nervous system and play important roles in regulating neural circuits and behavior. Our recent studies have revealed context-specific responses of astrocytes to various challenges that can be exploited for neurological disorders.
Making the transition from school to a professional workplace can be intimidating. Come learn how to adapt to the workplace as an intern or new hire. Panelists will share advice on how to match your personality with workplace expectations and how to position oneself for career advancement. For CEE at Illinois students.
"TBA." Belmont Lab
Speaker: Christian Schimpf
Gestational exposure to environmental toxins and socioeconomic stressors are epidemiologically linked to neurodevelopmental disorders with strong male-bias, such as autism. We modeled these prenatal risk factors in mice, by co-exposing pregnant dams to an environmental pollutant and limited-resource stress, which robustly dysregulated the maternal immune system.
Watch a live presentation about the civil and environmental engineering undergraduate program. Hear from staff and chat with current students to learn about their experiences and what you can expect as a new CEE student.
