Teaching-as-Research: Applying Research Principles to Improve Learning

Online - 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Workshop Description:

Applying research methodology within teaching and learning contexts to improve student outcomes is known as teaching-as-research (TAR). In this workshop, participants will learn about TAR and the process of completing a TAR project. After exploring examples of TAR projects, participants will begin writing questions for projects of their own. Participants will leave the workshop with a draft TAR question and an action plan for moving their projects forward. This workshop is open to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from all departments and disciplines, especially those who are interested in the Searle Teaching-as-Research (STAR) program.

Please bring your preferred writing utensils (paper & pen/laptop/tablet). Prior to attending the workshop, please watch these two videos ( 10 minutes total):

Abstract

Force generation by actin assembly shapes cellular membranes. The mechanisms that govern the organization of cytoskeletal complexes to produce directional force in cells are not understood. An experimentally constrained multiscale model shows that a minimal branched actin network is sufficient to internalize endocytic pits against membrane tension. Around 200 activated Arp2/3 complexes are required for robust internalization. A newly developed molecule-counting method determined that 200 Arp2/3 complexes assemble at sites of clathrin-mediated endocytosis in human cells. Simulations predict that actin self-organizes into a radial branched array with growing ends oriented toward the base of the pit. Long actin filaments bend between attachment sites in the coat and the base of the pit. Elastic energy stored in bent filaments, whose presence was confirmed by cryo-electron tomography, contributes to endocytic internalization. Elevated membrane tension directs more growing filaments toward the base of the pit, increasing actin nucleation and bending for increased force production. Thus, spatially constrained actin filament assembly utilizes an adaptive mechanism enabling endocytosis under varying physical constraints.

M-I Dept. Virtual Seminar -Imaging-Driven Discovery of a CTLA-4-Dependent Feedback Loop that Controls T Regulatory Cell Abundance in Tumors

Online - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Title:

Imaging-Driven Discovery of a CTLA-4-Dependent Feedback Loop that Controls T Regulatory Cell Abundance in Tumors

Speaker: Francesco Marangoni, PhD / University of California, Irvine

Host: Booki Min, DVM, PhD

Topic:

Although checkpoint blockade immunotherapy extends overall and progression-free survival for some oncologic patients, its efficacy is still limited to a minority of cases and of tumor types. We hypothesized that immunotherapy failure can at least in part be ascribed to the functional enhancement of tumor-associated T regulatory cells (Treg). We characterized the spatio-temporal dynamics of antigen-mediated Treg activation in tumors using intravital microscopy, and discovered that CTLA-4 blockade directly enhances the activation and proliferation of tumor-associated Treg. Mechanistically, anti-CTLA-4 antibodies disrupt a CD28-dependent feedback loop that adjusts Treg proliferation to the amount of co-stimulatory ligands expressed in the tumor microenvironment. Inhibition of Treg activation greatly enhanced the therapeutic efficacy of CTLA-4 blockade. We thus discovered unwanted immunosuppression triggered by CTLA-4 blockade that may explain the lack of therapeutic efficacy in many patients.

"Striatal Dopamine Waves as a Mechanism for Spatiotemporal Credit Assignment"

Online - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

The Department of Physiology welcomes Dr. Arif Hamid with Brown University.

Significant evidence supports the view that dopamine shapes reward-learning by encoding prediction errors. However, it is unknown whether dopamine decision-signals are tailored to the functional specialization of target regions. In this talk, I will report on a novel set of wave-like spatiotemporal activation patterns in dopamine axons and release across the dorsal striatum that switch between different activational motifs. At reward delivery, waves are altered by task demands, propagating on the mediolateral axis and predict trial-by-trial instrumental behavioral adjustments and agency learning in mice. I will demonstrate that our results are consistent with a computational architecture in which striatal dopamine signals are sculpted by inference about agency, and provide evidence for a spatiotemporally vectorized role of dopamine in credit assignment that are directed toward specialized expert striatal subregions.

Unraveling the mechanisms of fight or flight: it’s all about the neighborhood

Online - 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Steven Marx, MD
Herbert and Florence Irving Professor of Cardiology
Department of Medicine
Director of the Cardiovascular Fellowship Program
Columbia University Medical Center

Increased heart rate and contractility of the cardiac fight-or-flight response is dependent upon increased entry of calcium into cardiomyocytes. How activation of the sympathetic nervous system modulates calcium influx has been debated since the 1970s. In a series of papers published in Circulation Research, PNAS, JCI and Nature, Steven Marx s laboratory has solved this mystery. Using innovative approaches, they demonstrated that adrenergic regulation of calcium influx in heart persisted in transgenic mice expressing channels with alanine-substitutions of all of nearly 90 potential PKA phosphorylation sites, overturning long-accepted dogma. Utilizing state-of-the art proximity proteomics and comparing neighboring proteins under stimulating and resting states, Steven Marx identified a small G-protein, Rad, as the long sought-after link to PKA-mediated activation of calcium channels. In the end, the underlying mechanism turns out to be simple and elegant at baseline, Rad inhibits cardiac calcium channel activity, while PKA phosphorylation of Rad causes it to leave the vicinity of the calcium channel, thereby preventing it from inhibiting the channel. Furthermore, expression of Rad or its homologue Rem imparts stimulation of CaV1.3 and CaV2.2 by PKA, revealing an evolutionarily conserved mechanism that confers adrenergic modulation upon voltage-gated calcium channels expressed in heart, neuroendocrine cells and neurons.

M-I Dept. Virtual Seminar - Ribosome Hibernation: What, How and Why

Online - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Title:

Ribosome Hibernation: What, How and Why

Speaker: Mee-Ngan Frances Yap, PhD / Northwestern University

Host: Laimonis Laimins, PhD

Topic:

The formation of translationally silent ribosomes is a universal hallmark of both bacteria and eukaryotes that is linked to cell survival. Ribosome hibernation is believed to serves as a reservoir that, when conditions become favorable, allows the hibernating ribosomes to be recycled for new rounds of translation. Most bacteria inactivate ribosomes by dimerizing 70S ribosomes to form the hibernating 100S complex. This presentation will discuss the mechanism of 70S dimerization and the diverse roles of ribosome hibernation that have emerged from our recent structural, biochemical and genetic studies in a methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

Writing Effective Teaching Statements: Peer Review

Online - 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Teaching statements are an important component of many academic job applications, but they can be challenging to write. Receiving feedback from peers can provide you with recommendations on how to clarify and improve your main claims about your teaching. Allowing others to read your writing can also give you critical insight into how your target audience may understand and interpret your claims, which can help further refine your teaching statement.

In this workshop, participants will share their teaching statement drafts and engage in guided peer feedback.

This workshop is open to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from all departments and disciplines who have a draft of their teaching statement.

Please bring a draft of your teaching statement to the workshop to share.

This is an online workshop. The Zoom link will be sent to your email prior to the start of the event.
