Phospholipase D Signaling in Health and Disease

Original webinar date: February 20, 2024
Guest name: Balaji Krishnan, PhD

Professor Balaji Krishnan is an accomplished academician and Associate Professor, holding the prestigious Don and Nancy Mafrige Professorship in Neurodegenerative Diseases at the Mitchell Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases and the Department of Neurology at The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, USA. Dr. Krishnan is deeply involved in exploring the molecular intricacies that underlie synaptic resilience in neurodegenerative states such as Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and related dementias, including frontotemporal dementia (FTD). His expertise spans a wide range of research methodologies, from molecular biology to electrophysiology and behavior analysis, utilizing both human post-mortem brain tissues and translational animal models. In his forthcoming webinar titled “Phospholipase D Signalosome in Health and Disease,” Dr. Krishnan will delve into multimodal assessments in biomedical research, the importance of appropriate translational models, and the crucial role of synaptic function in defining neurological health and disease states in neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative conditions. Join us to gain valuable insights into the cutting-edge work of Dr. Krishnan and its implications in the field of neurodegenerative research.

Learning Objectives for the Webinar:

  • Explore the use of multimodal assessments in the study of biomedical research.
  • Understand the significance of employing appropriate translational models to elucidate underlying mechanisms.
  • Recognize the pivotal role of synaptic function as a parameter for defining healthy and diseased neurological states in neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative conditions, with a focus on Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias.
