Simpson Querrey Institute for Epigenetics Invited Speaker: Stephen J, Kron, MD, PhD, University of Chicago

Chicago - 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The Simpson Querrey Institute for Epigenetics presents:

Stephen J. Kron, MD, PhD

Professor, Molecular Genetics and Cell Biology, University of Chicago

"Zombie apocalypse: Therapy-induced senescence in cancer treatment"

Treating a tumor with radiation may damage all the cancer cells, but only a fraction will die. Among the survivors, persistent DNA damage induces zombie cells that remain viable, displaying features of cellular senescence including enlarged cell size, altered metabolism and an inflammatory secretome. Importantly, therapy-induced senescent cells can persist indefinitely, modifying the tumor microenvironment to drive resistance and recurrence. Our studies have implicated chromatin context and modification as determinants of DNA damage detection, repair, signaling, and checkpoints, identifying new targets to alter radiation effects. We have also learned how to reprogram the zombies. Using targeted agents to disrupt DNA repair and signaling pathways, we can form immunogenic senescent cells that stimulate anti-tumor immune response. Injecting these senescent cells as a vaccine can eliminate tumors, suggesting a new approach to personalized cancer therapy

M-I Dept. Seminar Series - "Neutralizing Antibodies Against Pandemic Viruses"

Online - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Title: "Neutralizing Antibodies Against Pandemic Viruses"

Pamela BJorkman, PhD

David Baltimore Professor of Biology and Bioengineering; Executive Officer for Biology and Biological Engineering

Caltech Div. of Biology and Biological Engineering

Faculty Host: Pablo Penaloza-MacMaster, PhD

Topic:

The SARS-CoV-2 virus has caused a world-wide pandemic resulting in a massive loss of lives. We are using structural biology techniques to investigate the structural correlates of antibody-based immune protection by solving 3-D structures of infection- and vaccination-induced antibodies complexed with the spike trimer of SARS-CoV-2. Structural comparisons allowed us to classify antibodies against the receptor-binding domain (RBD) of spike trimer into categories. These classifications provide rules for assigning current and future human RBD-targeting antibodies into classes and suggesting combinations for clinical use. Our structural studies have also guided the development of a potential pan-betacoronavirus vaccine. The vaccine approach involves co-display of diverse sets of RBDs from SARS-like beta coronaviruses (sarbecoviruses) on nanoparticle that results in increased breadth of neutralizing responses in mice compared with nanoparticles presenting only SARS-CoV-2 RBDs. This modular vaccine platform could provide protection from SARS-CoV-2 as well as potential future emergent coronaviruses that could cause pandemics.

M-I Bacteriology Faculty Candidate - Demystifying Bacterial “Dark Matter”: Uncharacterized Genes in Enterococcus faecalis Mediate Biofilm Formation and Gastrointestinal Tract Colonization

Chicago - 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Speaker - Julia WIllett, PhD

NIH K99 Postdoctoral Fellow, University of Minnesota Medical School, Department of Microbiology and Immunology

Topic

Bacteria are ubiquitous in nature and are essential components of healthy commensal microbiomes, but antibiotic-resistant pathogens pose a significant public health threat. Compounding the difficulty in understanding bacterial behavior in health and disease are uncharacterized genes, or the 30% of bacterial gene products with no known function. In diverse bacteria, experiments like RNAseq and TnSeq have revealed that many of these dark matter genes are important for survival in biologically relevant conditions, including biofilms, infection models, during interbacterial competition, and after exposure to antibiotics. Using the Gram-positive commensal and pathogenic bacterium Enterococcus faecalis, I created a phenotype to function workflow and identified nearly 100 uncharacterized genes required for biofilm formation and fitness in the gastrointestinal tract. These E. faecalis genes have predicted roles in cell wall maintenance, cell division, aggregation, production of virulence factors, and interbacterial interactions. Here, I present small, medium, and large-scale approaches for combining bacterial genetics with computational predictions of structure and function in order to discover gene function in commensal and pathogenic bacteria. New approaches for genome-scale discovery of bacterial gene function will advance our understanding of pathogenesis, basic microbiology, and how bacteria interact with the immune system, driving new methodologies to combat the rise of antibiotic resistance and improve human health.

Plexin-B2 enhances circulating tumor cell cluster formation and metastasis of breast cancer
Abstract: Metastatic breast cancer (MBC) is considered incurable as research currently lacks understanding of its molecular mechanisms. Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are responsible for metastasis and can circulate as either single cells or clusters, which show a 20-100 times greater rate of metastasis than single CTCs. In a metastasis signature study, Plexin-B2 protein expression is significantly associated with lower overall survival and distant metastasis-free survival across all breast cancer subtypes, implicating Plexin-B2 s role in metastasis. Through this research, we show that Plexin-B2 facilitates CTC cluster formation in breast cancer and thus enhances metastasis of the disease.

Feedback that Matters: Responding to Student Writing in the Humanities

Online - 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

About the Workshop:

The task of responding to student writing as an instructor or TA in the humanities can be challenging. You may feel like students bypass your written feedback to learn what their grade was, or that you are writing feedback as a self-defense mechanism in case students complain about their grades rather than providing actionable comments. In this workshop, we will consider ways to provide better feedback to students on written assignments. Providing effective feedback has a double benefit: it helps students grow as learners and writers in your discipline and it enables you to be efficient as you grade. We will discuss several strategies for responding to student writing and evaluate successful and unsuccessful models of written feedback.

About the Facilitators:

Robin Pokorski is a 7th-year PhD candidate in History. Her dissertation research examines Dominican nuns, community identity, and church reform in late medieval Germany. Robin has acted as a Graduate Teaching Mentor for the Searle Teaching Certificate Program, led Graduate Student Teaching Conference workshops, and participated in other Searle programming. She has taught the medieval and early modern European history survey course and TA ed for a wide variety of other history courses.


Tyler Talbott is a 5th year PhD candidate in English, studying nineteenth- and twentieth-century British literature.

In this workshop, participants will learn about some of the commonly recommended characteristics of teaching statements and practice how to modify an existing teaching statement draft or outline to suit the needs of various specific contexts, such as different institutional settings or working across disciplines.

Participants will leave the workshop with an understanding of where and how they can make small changes to their statements that will meet the requirements of a job or grant application.

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

Writing Your Teaching Statement: Peer Review

Online - 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

This event is open to members of the Northwestern community, with a special focus on graduate students and postdoctoral trainees. The Zoom link will be sent to your email prior to the start of the event.

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.

Grading Problem Sets in STEM

Online - 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

About the Workshop:
Problem sets are a commonly used assessment tool in STEM classrooms, however grading these assignments can be daunting for new TAs. The objective of this workshop is to help participants improve their problem set grading by introducing efficient, fair, and communicative approaches to grading. This workshop will also address conflicts that may arise in grading and how TAs can respond to them appropriately. Participants will practice grading problem set style questions and address grading conflicts in scenario-based exercises to apply the approaches introduced. As a whole, this workshop will equip STEM TAs with effective grading strategies to use in their courses.

Title: "Neutralizing Antibodies Against Pandemic Viruses"

Pamela BJorkman, PhD

David Baltimore Professor of Biology and Bioengineering; Executive Officer for Biology and Biological Engineering

Caltech Div. of Biology and Biological Engineering

Faculty Host: Pablo Penaloza-MacMaster, PhD

Topic:

The SARS-CoV-2 virus has caused a world-wide pandemic resulting in a massive loss of lives. We are using structural biology techniques to investigate the structural correlates of antibody-based immune protection by solving 3-D structures of infection- and vaccination-induced antibodies complexed with the spike trimer of SARS-CoV-2. Structural comparisons allowed us to classify antibodies against the receptor-binding domain (RBD) of spike trimer into categories. These classifications provide rules for assigning current and future human RBD-targeting antibodies into classes and suggesting combinations for clinical use. Our structural studies have also guided the development of a potential pan-betacoronavirus vaccine. The vaccine approach involves co-display of diverse sets of RBDs from SARS-like beta coronaviruses (sarbecoviruses) on nanoparticle that results in increased breadth of neutralizing responses in mice compared with nanoparticles presenting only SARS-CoV-2 RBDs. This modular vaccine platform could provide protection from SARS-CoV-2 as well as potential future emergent coronaviruses that could cause pandemics.

M-I Bacteriology Faculty Candidate - Demystifying Bacterial “Dark Matter”: Uncharacterized Genes in Enterococcus faecalis Mediate Biofilm Formation and Gastrointestinal Tract Colonization

Chicago - 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Speaker - Julia WIllett, PhD

NIH K99 Postdoctoral Fellow, University of Minnesota Medical School, Department of Microbiology and Immunology

Topic

Bacteria are ubiquitous in nature and are essential components of healthy commensal microbiomes, but antibiotic-resistant pathogens pose a significant public health threat. Compounding the difficulty in understanding bacterial behavior in health and disease are uncharacterized genes, or the 30% of bacterial gene products with no known function. In diverse bacteria, experiments like RNAseq and TnSeq have revealed that many of these dark matter genes are important for survival in biologically relevant conditions, including biofilms, infection models, during interbacterial competition, and after exposure to antibiotics. Using the Gram-positive commensal and pathogenic bacterium Enterococcus faecalis, I created a phenotype to function workflow and identified nearly 100 uncharacterized genes required for biofilm formation and fitness in the gastrointestinal tract. These E. faecalis genes have predicted roles in cell wall maintenance, cell division, aggregation, production of virulence factors, and interbacterial interactions. Here, I present small, medium, and large-scale approaches for combining bacterial genetics with computational predictions of structure and function in order to discover gene function in commensal and pathogenic bacteria. New approaches for genome-scale discovery of bacterial gene function will advance our understanding of pathogenesis, basic microbiology, and how bacteria interact with the immune system, driving new methodologies to combat the rise of antibiotic resistance and improve human health.

Plexin-B2 enhances circulating tumor cell cluster formation and metastasis of breast cancer
Abstract: Metastatic breast cancer (MBC) is considered incurable as research currently lacks understanding of its molecular mechanisms. Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are responsible for metastasis and can circulate as either single cells or clusters, which show a 20-100 times greater rate of metastasis than single CTCs. In a metastasis signature study, Plexin-B2 protein expression is significantly associated with lower overall survival and distant metastasis-free survival across all breast cancer subtypes, implicating Plexin-B2 s role in metastasis. Through this research, we show that Plexin-B2 facilitates CTC cluster formation in breast cancer and thus enhances metastasis of the disease.

Writing Your Teaching Statement: Generating Ideas

No Location - 2:00 PM - 4:00 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 the characteristics of successful 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 and postdoctoral fellows from all departments and disciplines, 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.

Feedback that Matters: Responding to Student Writing in the Humanities

Online - 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

About the Workshop:

The task of responding to student writing as an instructor or TA in the humanities can be challenging. You may feel like students bypass your written feedback to learn what their grade was, or that you are writing feedback as a self-defense mechanism in case students complain about their grades rather than providing actionable comments. In this workshop, we will consider ways to provide better feedback to students on written assignments. Providing effective feedback has a double benefit: it helps students grow as learners and writers in your discipline and it enables you to be efficient as you grade. We will discuss several strategies for responding to student writing and evaluate successful and unsuccessful models of written feedback.

About the Facilitators:

Robin Pokorski is a 7th-year PhD candidate in History. Her dissertation research examines Dominican nuns, community identity, and church reform in late medieval Germany. Robin has acted as a Graduate Teaching Mentor for the Searle Teaching Certificate Program, led Graduate Student Teaching Conference workshops, and participated in other Searle programming. She has taught the medieval and early modern European history survey course and TA ed for a wide variety of other history courses.


Tyler Talbott is a 5th year PhD candidate in English, studying nineteenth- and twentieth-century British literature. Tyler s teaching experience includes teaching for British surveys, composition courses, and NU Summer Bridge, serving as a Writing Fellow at the Graduate Writing Place, tutoring for the Northwestern Prison Education Program, and participating in educational development initiatives through Searle.

Writing Your Teaching Statement: Peer Review

Online - 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

This event is open to members of the Northwestern community, with a special focus on graduate students and postdoctoral trainees. The Zoom link will be sent to your email prior to the start of the event.

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.

Grading Problem Sets in STEM

Online - 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

About the Workshop:
Problem sets are a commonly used assessment tool in STEM classrooms, however grading these assignments can be daunting for new TAs. The objective of this workshop is to help participants improve their problem set grading by introducing efficient, fair, and communicative approaches to grading. This workshop will also address conflicts that may arise in grading and how TAs can respond to them appropriately. Participants will practice grading problem set style questions and address grading conflicts in scenario-based exercises to apply the approaches introduced. As a whole, this workshop will equip STEM TAs with effective grading strategies to use in their courses.
