9364 Scott Hall - Pathology Conference Room

The Wayne State University community is invited to attend a research  presentation with guest speaker, Yidong, Bai, Ph.D., professor of cell system and anatomy, University of Texas Health system.

The presentation will be held on June 18, 2019 at 12:00 noon in 9364 Scott Hall. The seminar is free and open to the entire university community. 

Dr. Bai will present, "Restoration of Mitochondrial Function: An Exploration on Regulation of Mitochondrial Function and Treatment of Metabolic Diseases."

Dr. Bai earned a B.A. degree in microbiology at Fudan University, a M.S. degree in genetic engineering, and a Ph.D. in biological sciences from Columbia University. 

Abstract: 

Mitochondrial dysfunctions have been associated with metabolic diseases, particularly in tissues with high energy demands, including brain, heart and skeletal muscle. We have established various models with different types of mitochondrial deficiencies. We then employ various approaches to restore mitochondrial function. Our studies reveal novel insights on the regulation of mitochondrial function and energy metabolism in general, and provide approaches to treat metabolic diseases with mitochondrial dysfunction.

We hope you can join us for this interesting seminar!
