Mon 03 Dec

AIAS Fellows' Seminar: Asad Jan, AIAS Fellow and Postdoc in Jensen Group
Abstract: A large number of population, aged 65 years or over, is at risk of developing neurodegeneration due to Alzheimer (AD) and/or Parkinson disease (PD). During this seminar, Asad Jan will provide a brief overview of the neuropathology of these two diseases, with particular emphasis on protein misfolding and aggregation in brain, and mechanisms of neuronal loss. Asad will also discuss some recent hypothesis, particularly the prion-like behaviour of misfolded proteins and dysregulation of mRNA translation, and their implications for novel therapies. Registration to the seminar is not necessary.

12:00-13:00 | Aarhus University: The Biochemistry Aud. 6, build. 1170-347
Biomedicine Seminar by Associate Professor Martin Roelsgaard Jakobsen
Abstract: STING (stimulator of interferon genes) is a central hub of our innate immune system. The STING pathway detects DNA accumulating in the cytoplasm from either infections, DNA damage responses or chromatin instability. The DNA detection mediates a series of events, leading to the induction of type I Interferon, cytokines and T cell recruitment factors. For years we have known that modulating the STING pathway is important for antiviral immunity, but lately it has emerged that STING signaling is also central for controlling anticancer immune responses.

Specialized iNANO lecture: Prion-like propagation of alpha-synuclein assemblies and the molecular basis of distinct synucleinopathies
Ronald Melki, Team Protein misfolding and aggregation in neurodegenerative diseases Neurodegenerative Diseases, CNRS. The aggregation of proteins within the central nervous system is deleterious and associated to neurodegenerative disorders. The aggregation of the protein alpha-synuclein is associated to synucleinopathies, in particular Parkinson's disease. How alpha-synuclein aggregates, how those aggregates traffic between cells, amplify by recruiting endogenous monomeric alpha-synuclein and cause distinct synucleinopathies is unclear.
