Novel Approaches to Preventing Publication Bias
The objective of this meeting is to promote the dissemination of all rigorously and transparently obtained scientific results by identifying and catalyzing novel interventions to reduce publication bias (the preferential dissemination of statistically significant or otherwise exciting results) in biomedical research. This workshop will bring together a diverse cross-section of individuals who promote scientific rigor and transparency and are invested in mitigating publication bias. Attendees from various sectors, including active researchers, publishers, science societies, funders, and the broader scientific community, wil...

WALS Lecture: Leveraging Genetics and Cell Signaling to Decipher Disorders of Excitability
Presentation Objectives: To understand how genetic testing illuminates the causes of a devastating disease, Sudden Unexpected Death in Childhood, and identifies dysfunctional calcium signaling as a major cause; To chart a course for how genetic analysis of neuropsychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, Major Depressive Disorder and Bipolar Disorder will spur understanding the impact of non-coding variations in key signaling proteins; To appreciate how genetics highlights underappreciated signaling molecules that coordinate excitatory and inhibitory synaptic strength and provide a target for cannabidiol (CBD) action in e...

NIH FDA COVID-19 SIG Lecture Series- Michela Locci Ph.D.
The production of antibodies (Abs) with high affinity and pathogen neutralization potential is crucial for preventing and fighting pathogen infection. To produce such Abs, na ï ve B cells are activated in response to cognate antigen and subsequently undergo rounds of somatic hypermutation and selection in germinal centers, specialized microanatomical sites in secondary lymphoid organs. This process of affinity maturation is tightly regulated by a specialized subset of CD4 T cells named T follicular helper (Tfh) cells. Our laboratory is interested in dissecting the complex biology of Tfh cells. Understanding (1) how Tfh di...

WALS NIH Director's Lecture: Reducing Firearm Violence: A Public Health Approach
David Hemenway, Ph.D., Professor of Health Policy, is Director of the Harvard Injury Control Research Center. He formerly spent a week each year at the University of Vermont as a James Marsh Visiting Professor-at-Large. The lecture will describe the enormity of the US gun violence problem and the public health approach for reducing that problem. It will illustrate the public health approach, including emphasizing the importance of data and research, with examples of ways to reduce suicide and unintentional firearm deaths. Dr. Hemenway teaches classes on injury and on economics. At HSPH he has won ten teaching awards as wel...

NIH ProtIG Seminar: The role of long-lived proteins in aging and Alzheimer ’ s disease
Loss of proteostasis is a hallmark of aging, and aging is the greatest risk factor for Alzheimer's disease (AD). Deterioration in function and accumulation of damage to the proteome are largely repaired by protein turnover. These turnover mechanisms are particularly important in long-lived postmitotic neurons, which cannot dilute toxic proteins through cell division. We aimed to identify extremely long-lived proteins (ELLP) that persist for several months or longer across the aging continuum in wild-type mice and in genetic AD mouse models. We hypothesize that these ELLPs represent key points of vulnerability to the declin...
