Graduate and Postdoc (GaP) Seminar Series

Event Details

Manu Platt, PhD


Summary Sentence: Nassir Mokarram and Marina Piccinelli presenting

Full Summary: The Graduate and Post-Doc (GaP) Seminar Series is a weekly event of research presentations by two graduate students or post-docs conducting bio-related research.  The series is organized and sponsored by the Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience (IBB) with additional support from the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering. It is held every Wednesday at 12:00pm in IBB 1128 and refreshments are provided. If your research group or department would like to present at future seminars, please contact Manu Platt, PhD.

"Modulating Immune Response to Enhance Peripheral Nerve Regeneration"

Nerve repair across long gaps remains clinically challenging and despite progress made with scaffolds presenting trophic factors, matching autograft performance has been limited. Here, we modulated the immune response after nerve injury, and defined a new term, regenerative bias, based on the ratio of M1 and M2 macrophage, and showed that rather than the extent of macrophage presence, their specific phenotype regulates the regenerative outcomes.

"Image-based Computational Investigations of Intracranial Aneurysms. 3D Morphology and Implications for Hemodynamics"

Intracranial aneurysms are pathological dilatations of arterial blood vessels, their rupture being a severe clinical event associated with high rate of mortality and morbidity. Patient-specific hemodynamics and 3D vascular morphology have both been associated with the disease development and progression. A computational framework for the image-based investigations of 3D vascular geometry and hemodynamics of cerebral aneurysms is presented.
