"Polycomb, Inheritance, and Disease"

Epigenetics encompasses changes in gene expression profiles that occur without alterations in the genomic DNA sequence of a cell. This arises from the dynamic processes that structure regions of chromosomal DNA through a range of compaction in eukaryotes. The altered pattern of gene expression is pivotal to cellular differentiation and development and is inherited by daughter cells thereby maintaining the integrity, specifications, and functions for a given cell type. Aberrancies in this epigenetic process give rise to perturbations that are also inherited and disruptive to normal cellular properties.

“Genomics of B Cell Lymphoma: Role of Super-Enhancer Hypermutation”

Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most common B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma and remains incurable in ~40% of patients. Coding-genome sequencing efforts identified several genes/pathways altered in this disease, including new potential therapeutic targets. However, the non-coding genome of DLBCL remains largely unexplored. We found that active super-enhancers (SEs) are highly and specifically hypermutated in 92% of DLBCL samples. Hypermutation is due to the activity of activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AICDA), which normally targets Immunoglobulin genes.  Hypermutated SE are linked to genes encoding B-cell developmental regulators and oncogenes. As evidence of oncogenic relevance, we show that the hypermutated SEs linked to the BCL6, BCL2, and CXCR4 proto-oncogenes prevent the binding and transcriptional downregulation of the corresponding target gene by specific transcriptional repressors. Genetic correction of selected mutations restored repressor DNA-binding, downregulated target gene expression, and led to the counter-selection of cells harboring corrected alleles, indicating oncogenic dependency from the SE mutations. This pervasive SE mutational mechanism reveals a new major set of genetic lesions deregulating gene expression, which expands the involvement of known oncogenes in DLBCL pathogenesis and identifies new deregulated gene targets of therapeutic relevance. The functional approach used for these studies may find general application in investigating mutational events in regulatory domains in other tumors and in germ-line DNA.

"Biochemistry and Cell Biology of Multivalent Condensates in Regulation of Gene Expression”

Liquid-liquid phase transitions in the formation and dynamic properties of condensates have led to new insights into cellular regulatory processes. Condensates are membrane-less bodies such as the nucleolus in the nucleus and stress granules in the cytoplasm which rapidly exchange components with the cellular solute. In mammalian cells, gene transcription is controlled by dynamic micro-condensates formed between distant regulatory elements and the promoter. The implications of this model in the binding of regulatory proteins, non-equilibrium processes, and new approaches to therapeutic interventions will be discussed.

Translational Immuno-oncology for Central Nervous System Tumors

Amy Heimberger, MD, PhD
Vice Chair for Research, Department of Neurological Surgery
Professor of Neurological Surgery

Dr. Heimberger’s lab works to elucidate mechanisms of tumor-mediated immune suppression and identify actionable targets for immune therapeutics. Her laboratory was pivotal in the development of a peptide vaccine strategy that targets the EGF receptor. They also clarified that glioma-associated cancer stem cells potentiate gliomagenesis via the STAT3 pathway by exerting immune suppressive properties on both the adaptive and innate arms of the immune system. After pre-clinical development in Dr. Heimberger’s lab, a novel small molecule inhibitor of STAT3 was introduced into clinical trials in 2018 for melanoma patients with central nervous system metastasis and primary glioma patients.

M-I Dept. Seminar Series / Regulation and Mechanism of Vibrio cholerae-chitin Interactions

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Title: Regulation and Mechanism of Vibrio cholerae-chitin Interactions  

Speaker:  Ankur Dalia, PhD, Associate Professor of Biology 
Indiana University

Topic:

The facultative pathogen Vibrio cholerae naturally resides in the aquatic environment, but can cause the diarrheal disease cholera if ingested by a human host. In the aquatic environment, V. cholerae commonly binds to the chitinous shells of crustacean zooplankton. It can then secrete enzymes that degrade chitin into soluble oligosaccharides, which in turn it consumes as a source of carbon and nitrogen. Also, chitin oligosaccharides are critical for inducing the genes required for horizontal gene transfer by natural transformation. Thus, Vibrio-chitin interactions contribute to the survival and evolution of this pathogen in its environmental reservoir. The Dalia lab studies the regulation, mechanisms, and downstream consequences of chitin-induced behaviors in V. cholerae. This work also provides fundamental insights into conserved bacterial processes including signal transduction, gene regulation, extracellular surface appendages called type IV pili, and homologous recombination.

Neuroscience Seminar Series: Takaki Komiyama, PhD, "Motor cortex circuits for motor control and learning"

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Abstract:

Motor cortex circuits are highly plastic, enabling adaptive control and learning of body movements. I will discuss two projects. In the first project, we studied the spatial and functional specificity of synaptogenesis that occurs during motor learning. This was done by longitudinal functional imaging of dendritic spines followed by correlated electron microscopy. In the second project, we are investigating the roles of motor cortex ensemble activity in the control of learned movements. This is done by population calcium imaging combined with holographic two-photon optogenetic stimulation of neural ensembles.

Neuroscience Seminar Series: Daniel Aharoni, PhD, "New tools for imaging large-scale network dynamics in behaving animals"

Online - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Abstract:

One of the biggest challenges in neuroscience is to understand how neural circuits in the brain process, encode, store, and retrieve information. Meeting this challenge requires tools capable of recording and manipulating the activity of intact neural networks in freely behaving animals. Head-mounted miniature fluorescence microscopes are among the most promising of these tools. Taking advantage of the past decade of advancements in fluorescent neural activity reports, these microscopes use wide-field single photon excitation to image activity across large populations of neurons in freely behaving animals. They are capable of imaging the same neural population across months and in a wide range of different brain regions. 

The UCLA Miniscope Project -- an open-source collaborative effort-- aims at accelerating innovation of miniature microscope technology while also extending access to this technology to the entire neuroscience community. Currently, we are working on advancements ranging from optogenetic stimulation and wireless operation to simultaneous optical and electrophysiology recording. Through continued optimization and innovation, miniature microscopes will likely play a critical role in extending the reach of neuroscience research and creating new avenues of scientific inquiry.

Department of Pharmacology Seminar: Time-resolved Analysis of Gene Regulation in Single Cells, Hao Wu, PhD

Chicago - 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Time-resolved Analysis of Gene Regulation in Single Cells

Gene expression programs change over time, development and maturation, and in response to stimuli. While gene regulation can be studied indirectly by quantifying total RNAs, directly measuring nascent or newly transcribed RNAs is required to reveal the immediate regulatory changes in response to developmental, environmental, and pathological signals. To gain a more complete mechanistic understanding of cell-type specific regulation of RNA dynamics in diverse biological processes, we have recently developed new technologies that can quantitatively distinguish newly synthesized (“new”) from pre-existing (“old”) RNAs in the same single cell at scale. We demonstrate that time-resolved single cell transcriptomics method can generate high temporal resolution RNA expression data (at the time scale of minutes to hours), which bring deeper insights into the molecular and cellular mechanisms in dynamic systems. Finally, by enabling quantitative analysis of mRNA kinetic parameters (synthesis, splicing & degradation), our approach can better define mechanistic link between RNA dynamics and cell state transition or any perturbation, thereby exploring the regulatory wiring of a cell beyond transcriptional control alone.

Title:

Evolution-proof antibiotics: Can we make treatments that are both effective and evolutionarily robust?   

Speaker:

Samuel P. Brown, PhD

Professor, Biology, Georgia Tech
Director, Center for Microbial Dynamics and Infection (CMDI)

Topic:

Infection medicine currently faces two major and growing crises that impact the ability of MDs to treat bacterial infections with our current arsenal of antibiotics. The first is widely recognised – the evolution of antibiotic resistance. The second receives less attention – chronic polymicrobial infections where appropriate antibiotics often fail to resolve infections. I will discuss novel patient-specific control strategies that have the potential to effectively treat patients now and into the future. These diagnostic-conditional strategies are grounded in multi-scale modeling and experimentation, from within-host dynamics of multi-species infection microbiomes through to the epidemiological and evolutionary dynamics of competing pathogen strains.

Neuroscience Seminar Series: Daniel Castro, PhD "Non-canonical roles for endogenous opioids in affect, motivation, and metabolism"

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Abstract:

Each year, tens of thousands of people in the United States die of opioid overdose, suffer from chronic pain, or struggle with diabetes. Though unique in origin, a common thread uniting these public health crises is their sensitivity to opioid interventions. However, while opioids are known to profoundly affect each of these diseases, our mechanistic understanding for how endogenous opioids function in healthy or disease states remains poorly understood. Here, we leverage and develop next-generation, opioid-specific, tools for neuroscientific and metabolic experimentation. Current projects include: 1) How mu opioid receptors in nucleus accumbens regulate affect and motivation, 2) How endogenous enkephalins in lateral dorsal raphe nucleus modulate appetitive and aversive motivated behaviors, and 3) How endogenous mu opioid receptors in pancreatic islets contribute to glucose homeostasis and diabetes. Overall, our goal is to understand where, when, and how endogenous opioid systems mediate a variety of biological and psychological functions.

"Getting to the heart of HERG K+ channels"

Potassium ion channels encoded by the human ether-a-go-go related gene (hERG) form the ion-conducting subunit of the rapid delayed rectifier potassium current (IKr). HERG channels show a widespread tissue distribution, but they play a particularly important role in the heart. The unusual gating kinetics of HERG channels, most notably rapid and voltage-dependent inactivation coupled to slow deactivation, are particularly well suited for regulating cardiac repolarization and suppression of cardiac arrhythmias. In this presentation I will discuss our recent work exploring the structural basis of how HERG channels work and then discuss the development of high throughput assays to assess the impact of clinically occurring mutations in HERG K+ channels.

M-I Dept. Seminar Series / Innate Immune Responses to Viruses by OAS-RNase L

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Title: Innate Immune Responses to Viruses by OAS-RNase L

Speaker:  Robert H. Silverman, PhD, Professor and Staff, Cancer Biology, Lerner Research Institute, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, OH

Topic:

The 2’,5’-oligoadenylate (2-5A) synthetase (OAS)-RNase L pathway mediates the interferon response against a wide range of different types of viruses.  Intriguingly, many coronaviruses and rotaviruses express enzymes that eliminate 2-5A allowing for viral evasion of RNase L, and of interferon.  OAS-RNase L also impacts viral pathology by regulating inflammatory responses to virus infections.  Current studies that focus on effects of OAS-RNase L on SARS-CoV-2 infections will be described.

Lurie Cancer Center Basic Research Seminar: Early Life ROS as Modifiers of Lifespan and Age-Associated Diseases

Chicago - 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The Lurie Cancer Center Basic Research Seminar Series presents:

Early Life ROS as Modifiers of Lifespan and Age-Associated Diseases

Ursula Jakob, PhD
Patricia S. Yaeger Collegiate Professor, Molecular,
Cellular, and Developmental Biolog
Professor, Biological Chemistry
University of Michigan Medical School
Ann Arbor, Michigan

The Jakob lab studies the role of environmental and biological factors on variability in lifespan and age-associated diseases. The lab recently discovered that oxidative stress experienced early in life promoted stress resistance, improved redox homeostasis, extended lifespan and protected against age-associated diseases. By using a C. elegans model of aging, the Jakob lab demonstrated that a synchronized population of animals showed naturally occurring variances in ROS levels during early development. Upon sorting the
individuals according to their ROS levels, the researchers found that the worms with the highest levels of ROS during development showed the longest and heathiest lifespan. The
talk will focus on the underlying mechanisms of this phenomenon, the role of redox sensitive histone modifications in life- and health-span, and the implications for aging and
age-associated diseases in humans.

All members of the Northwestern Medicine community are invited to attend.

Dr. Heimberger’s lab works to elucidate mechanisms of tumor-mediated immune suppression and identify actionable targets for immune therapeutics. Her laboratory was pivotal in the development of a peptide vaccine strategy that targets the EGF receptor. They also clarified that glioma-associated cancer stem cells potentiate gliomagenesis via the STAT3 pathway by exerting immune suppressive properties on both the adaptive and innate arms of the immune system. After pre-clinical development in Dr. Heimberger’s lab, a novel small molecule inhibitor of STAT3 was introduced into clinical trials in 2018 for melanoma patients with central nervous system metastasis and primary glioma patients.

M-I Dept. Seminar Series / Regulation and Mechanism of Vibrio cholerae-chitin Interactions

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Title: Regulation and Mechanism of Vibrio cholerae-chitin Interactions  

Speaker:  Ankur Dalia, PhD, Associate Professor of Biology 
Indiana University

Topic:

The facultative pathogen Vibrio cholerae naturally resides in the aquatic environment, but can cause the diarrheal disease cholera if ingested by a human host. In the aquatic environment, V. cholerae commonly binds to the chitinous shells of crustacean zooplankton. It can then secrete enzymes that degrade chitin into soluble oligosaccharides, which in turn it consumes as a source of carbon and nitrogen. Also, chitin oligosaccharides are critical for inducing the genes required for horizontal gene transfer by natural transformation. Thus, Vibrio-chitin interactions contribute to the survival and evolution of this pathogen in its environmental reservoir. The Dalia lab studies the regulation, mechanisms, and downstream consequences of chitin-induced behaviors in V. cholerae. This work also provides fundamental insights into conserved bacterial processes including signal transduction, gene regulation, extracellular surface appendages called type IV pili, and homologous recombination.

Writing Your Teaching Statement: Generating Ideas

Online - 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Drafting a Teaching Statement can be a challenging process, particularly for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who may have limited teaching experience.

In this workshop, participants will learn about some of the common characteristics of teaching statements and engage in the Generative Knowledge Interview process, which uses key moments as learners and teachers to help frame the value of teaching in their teaching statements.

This is a highly interactive workshop. Writing and discussing with peers is expected of all participants.

Participants will leave the workshop with a deeper understanding of the conventions of strong teaching statements and generated content for a teaching statement draft.

The workshop is open to graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty from all departments and disciplines at Northwestern, at all stages of drafting their teaching statements.

Please complete the pre-work assignments prior to the start of the workshop. You will receive the pre-work assignment and workshop meeting link with your registration confirmation email.

Because there is pre-work assigned for this workshop, registration will be closed 24 hours before the start of the workshop.

In the first project, we studied the spatial and functional specificity of synaptogenesis that occurs during motor learning. This was done by longitudinal functional imaging of dendritic spines followed by correlated electron microscopy. In the second project, we are investigating the roles of motor cortex ensemble activity in the control of learned movements. This is done by population calcium imaging combined with holographic two-photon optogenetic stimulation of neural ensembles.

"Harnessing native membrane protein complexes to illuminate architecture and mechanism of neurotransmission and mechanosensory transduction"

Dr. Eric Gouaux is interested in the molecular mechanism of signal transduction at the chemical synapses of the nervous system and the molecular underpinnings of mechanosensory transduction in the auditory and vestibular systems. Using biochemical, biophysical, and electrophysiological methods, and via the development of new methods and molecular tools, Gouaux and his team investigate the atomic structure and biological function of synaptic receptors and transporters, as well as mechanosensory ion channels. Their work provides insight into the molecular working of the nervous system and lays the foundation for the development of new therapeutic agents.

Topic:

The goal of our studies is to reveal the molecular mechanisms whereby KSHV establishes lifelong infection in humans. Understanding the key factors that determine whether KSHV establishes latency of lytic cycle after infection can help the development of novel therapeutic interventions to block persistent infection of the host by KSHV and the development of KSHV-associated diseases. I will discuss some of our findings regarding the canonical and non-canonical roles of polycomb proteins in KSHV infection.

Neuroscience Seminar Series: Daniel Aharoni, PhD, "New tools for imaging large-scale network dynamics in behaving animals"

Online - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Abstract:

One of the biggest challenges in neuroscience is to understand how neural circuits in the brain process, encode, store, and retrieve information. Meeting this challenge requires tools capable of recording and manipulating the activity of intact neural networks in freely behaving animals. Head-mounted miniature fluorescence microscopes are among the most promising of these tools. Taking advantage of the past decade of advancements in fluorescent neural activity reports, these microscopes use wide-field single photon excitation to image activity across large populations of neurons in freely behaving animals. They are capable of imaging the same neural population across months and in a wide range of different brain regions. 

The UCLA Miniscope Project -- an open-source collaborative effort-- aims at accelerating innovation of miniature microscope technology while also extending access to this technology to the entire neuroscience community. Currently, we are working on advancements ranging from optogenetic stimulation and wireless operation to simultaneous optical and electrophysiology recording. Through continued optimization and innovation, miniature microscopes will likely play a critical role in extending the reach of neuroscience research and creating new avenues of scientific inquiry.

Department of Pharmacology Seminar: Time-resolved Analysis of Gene Regulation in Single Cells, Hao Wu, PhD

Chicago - 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Time-resolved Analysis of Gene Regulation in Single Cells

Gene expression programs change over time, development and maturation, and in response to stimuli. While gene regulation can be studied indirectly by quantifying total RNAs, directly measuring nascent or newly transcribed RNAs is required to reveal the immediate regulatory changes in response to developmental, environmental, and pathological signals. To gain a more complete mechanistic understanding of cell-type specific regulation of RNA dynamics in diverse biological processes, we have recently developed new technologies that can quantitatively distinguish newly synthesized (“new”) from pre-existing (“old”) RNAs in the same single cell at scale. We demonstrate that time-resolved single cell transcriptomics method can generate high temporal resolution RNA expression data (at the time scale of minutes to hours), which bring deeper insights into the molecular and cellular mechanisms in dynamic systems. Finally, by enabling quantitative analysis of mRNA kinetic parameters (synthesis, splicing & degradation), our approach can better define mechanistic link between RNA dynamics and cell state transition or any perturbation, thereby exploring the regulatory wiring of a cell beyond transcriptional control alone.

Title:

Evolution-proof antibiotics: Can we make treatments that are both effective and evolutionarily robust?   

Speaker:

Samuel P. Brown, PhD

Professor, Biology, Georgia Tech
Director, Center for Microbial Dynamics and Infection (CMDI)

Topic:

Infection medicine currently faces two major and growing crises that impact the ability of MDs to treat bacterial infections with our current arsenal of antibiotics. The first is widely recognised – the evolution of antibiotic resistance. The second receives less attention – chronic polymicrobial infections where appropriate antibiotics often fail to resolve infections. I will discuss novel patient-specific control strategies that have the potential to effectively treat patients now and into the future. These diagnostic-conditional strategies are grounded in multi-scale modeling and experimentation, from within-host dynamics of multi-species infection microbiomes through to the epidemiological and evolutionary dynamics of competing pathogen strains.

Neuroscience Seminar Series: Daniel Castro, PhD "Non-canonical roles for endogenous opioids in affect, motivation, and metabolism"

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Abstract:

Each year, tens of thousands of people in the United States die of opioid overdose, suffer from chronic pain, or struggle with diabetes. Though unique in origin, a common thread uniting these public health crises is their sensitivity to opioid interventions. However, while opioids are known to profoundly affect each of these diseases, our mechanistic understanding for how endogenous opioids function in healthy or disease states remains poorly understood. Here, we leverage and develop next-generation, opioid-specific, tools for neuroscientific and metabolic experimentation. Current projects include: 1) How mu opioid receptors in nucleus accumbens regulate affect and motivation, 2) How endogenous enkephalins in lateral dorsal raphe nucleus modulate appetitive and aversive motivated behaviors, and 3) How endogenous mu opioid receptors in pancreatic islets contribute to glucose homeostasis and diabetes. Overall, our goal is to understand where, when, and how endogenous opioid systems mediate a variety of biological and psychological functions.

"Getting to the heart of HERG K+ channels"

Potassium ion channels encoded by the human ether-a-go-go related gene (hERG) form the ion-conducting subunit of the rapid delayed rectifier potassium current (IKr). HERG channels show a widespread tissue distribution, but they play a particularly important role in the heart. The unusual gating kinetics of HERG channels, most notably rapid and voltage-dependent inactivation coupled to slow deactivation, are particularly well suited for regulating cardiac repolarization and suppression of cardiac arrhythmias. In this presentation I will discuss our recent work exploring the structural basis of how HERG channels work and then discuss the development of high throughput assays to assess the impact of clinically occurring mutations in HERG K+ channels.

Title: Innate Immune Responses to Viruses by OAS-RNase L

Speaker:  Robert H. Silverman, PhD, Professor and Staff, Cancer Biology, Lerner Research Institute, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, OH

Topic:

The 2’,5’-oligoadenylate (2-5A) synthetase (OAS)-RNase L pathway mediates the interferon response against a wide range of different types of viruses.  Intriguingly, many coronaviruses and rotaviruses express enzymes that eliminate 2-5A allowing for viral evasion of RNase L, and of interferon.  OAS-RNase L also impacts viral pathology by regulating inflammatory responses to virus infections.  Current studies that focus on effects of OAS-RNase L on SARS-CoV-2 infections will be described.

Early Life ROS as Modifiers of Lifespan and Age-Associated Diseases

Ursula Jakob, PhD
Patricia S. Yaeger Collegiate Professor, Molecular,
Cellular, and Developmental Biolog
Professor, Biological Chemistry
University of Michigan Medical School
Ann Arbor, Michigan

The Jakob lab studies the role of environmental and biological factors on variability in lifespan and age-associated diseases. The lab recently discovered that oxidative stress experienced early in life promoted stress resistance, improved redox homeostasis, extended lifespan and protected against age-associated diseases. By using a C. elegans model of aging, the Jakob lab demonstrated that a synchronized population of animals showed naturally occurring variances in ROS levels during early development. Upon sorting the
individuals according to their ROS levels, the researchers found that the worms with the highest levels of ROS during development showed the longest and heathiest lifespan. The
talk will focus on the underlying mechanisms of this phenomenon, the role of redox sensitive histone modifications in life- and health-span, and the implications for aging and
age-associated diseases in humans.

All members of the Northwestern Medicine community are invited to attend.
