Latest Research on Stem Cells April 22th

Spring Seminar: Latest Research on Stem Cells
  • Distinguished Lecturer, April 22th                                             
  • Mt Carmel Auditorium 
  • (Sir) Dr. Christopher Lange, Professor of Physiology and Biophysics, SUNY Downstate Medical Center
  • Latest Research on Stem Cells
  • Prof. Lange’s entire career has dealt with understanding the mechanisms of how ionizing radiations affect molecules (especially DNA and the induction and repair of double strand breaks), how the kinetics of those changes affect cell survival and how changes in cell survival determine the survival of tissues, organisms, and tumors. This has led to many seminal works, often more than a decade ahead of the field. These studies have also shown the importance of radiation research in many other fields of science (physiology, cell biology, structural biology, genetics, biophysics, polymer physical chemistry, etc.) and medicine (radiation oncology, sonography, etc.). With a National Cancer Institute Research Career Development Award (1972-77), Lange showed that double-strand breaks (DSBs) in the DNA double helix are reparable in mammalian cells (previously they were thought to be irreparable and lethal). Most recently, he has addressed the necessity of hippocampal neurogenesis (from neural stem cells) for the therapeutic action of antidepressants in adult non-human primates. Please come and hear this esteemed Professor of Physiology & Biophysics from the SUNY Downstate School of Graduate Studies from SUNY Downstate Medical Center.
