Oral Presentation, Modulating Polyamine Metabolism to Extend Lifespan and Protect against Tauopathy
Polyamines, namely spermidine, spermine, and their precursor putrescine, are positively charged small molecules essential for life and broadly regulates cellular activities. Spermidine, in particular, has been implicated in aging and neurodegeneration, likely through regulating autophagy... Read More →

Oral Presentation, Single-nucleus RNA Sequencing Analysis of Alzheimer Disease Brains from APOE4 Carriers with African or European Local Genomic Ancestry surrounding APOE Gene Demonstrates Differences in APOE Expression
APOE4 is the strongest genetic risk factor for late onset AD. Local genomic ancestry (LA) surrounding the APOE region has been associated with a decreased risk for AD in African Americans (AA) relative to Non-Hispanic Whites (NHW). This difference in risk is not attributed to difference... Read More →

Oral Presentation, Role of the Hypoxia-Inducible Factors HIGD1A and HIGD2A in the Assembly of Mitochondrial Respiratory Chain Complexes and Supercomplexes
Deficiencies in the mitochondrial respiratory chain (MRC) frequently cause encephalomyopathy. The MRC is responsible for the aerobic generation of energy within the cell and is composed by four transmembrane multimeric enzymatic complexes (CI-CIV) and two electron carriers. The respiratory...

Oral Presentation, Hard Graft: A Novel Field-Based Method of Vectoring Thermotolerant Durusdinium trenchii Symbionts into Massive Coral Colonies
Durusdinium trenchii is known to confer greater thermal tolerance to its coral hosts than other common Caribbean algal symbionts, and can increase in abundance following bleaching events. Some corals can be induced to host >99% D. trenchii through controlled bleaching and recovery... Read More →
