Fakultätskolloquium


27.4.2017
16:15-18 Uhr,
Hörsaal 6, Carl-Zeiss-Str. 3


Vortragender: Dr. Helen Morrison (Leibniz-Institut für Alternsforschung - Fritz-Lipmann-Institut e.V. (FLI))

Thema: Nervous System Ageing: Healing and Tumour Formation

Zusammenfassung:

My lab is interested in the nature of cell communication, and the mis-wiring of signalling pathways in disease and in the aging process. We focus on age dependent signalling impairments underlying nervous system maintenance and regeneration, and in disease mechanisms for disorders of myelinating cells and nervous system tumours. These disease areas represent a great medical need and our work aims to perform translational work in each area. We use a multidisciplinary approach that includes in vitro, cellular and mouse models.

My seminar will address cellular and molecular pathways that are used to ensure effective nervous system maintenance and repair and discuss the contributing mechanisms that deteriorate during aging. Focusing on the peripheral nervous system I will include investigations on the plasticity of the Schwann cell differentiation state; research on the Schwann cell and axonal interactions and deregulation of this signalling circuit leading to impaired nerve maintenance and injury-induced regeneration.  Moreover I will show that the failure of the Schwann/axon circuit limiting nerve maintenance and repair also increases cancer risk.
