The Molecular and Systems Biology Specialty Section Executive Committee invites you to join a webinar highlighting the research conducted by our 2018 Paper of the Year Award recipient Dr. Priyanka Trivedi (Harvard Medical School) and 2018 Postdoctoral Fellow Research Award recipient Dr. Samantha Faber (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill).
Dr. Trivedi will present her paper titled, "Targeting Phospholipase D4 Attenuates Kidney Fibrosis" (DOI: 10.1681/ASN.2016111222), which was published in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology in December 2017. She will discuss phospholipase D4 (PLD4), a single-pass transmembrane glycoprotein, which is among the most highly upregulated genes in kidneys with chronic progressive fibrosis.
Dr. Faber will discuss the development and characterization of a novel three-dimensional organotypic airway model. Studies focused on examining key signaling pathways within airway fibroblasts following transepithelial air pollutant exposure also will be discussed.
These two presentations will highlight the exceptional research being conducted by young investigators in the Molecular and Systems Biology Specialty Section.
The webinar will begin at 12:00 PM EST on Tuesday, November 6, 2018, and is free to all attendees.
We look forward to your participation.
Shaun McCullough, President, Molecular and Systems Biology Specialty Section
