Cutting through the fog: Eliminating clutter in Doppler ultrasound with Brett Byram

Date: 
May 1 2017 - 4:00pm

Brett Byram formed the BEAM Lab in August 2013. The lab pursues ultrasonic beamforming and elasticity solutions to clinical problems. The BEAM Lab is part of the Vanderbilt Biomedical Engineering Department, and is part of the Vanderbilt Initiative in Surgery and Engineering (ViSE).

GEOSCI 777: Electron Microprobe Analysis

Course Information
Course #: 
GEO 777

The purpose of this course is to provide the theoretical background required for use of the electron microprobe (EMP) and scanning electron microscope (SEM) for scientific research. Students will receive hands-on experience with the Hitachi S3400 SEM and the Cameca SX51 electron probe in the course of lab exercises. Full training for independent use of these instruments in an individual’s research is arranged at the time when her/his samples are ready and he/she is ready to begin a regular schedule of instrument use.

Hans Ris seminar series with Erik M. Jorgensen

Date: 
Oct 3 2017 - 3:00pm


Erik Jorgensen studies the molecular mechanisms of synaptic function. Genetic screens and characterization are performed in the nematode C. elegans and then validated in rodents. In addition, his laboratory is developing methods for optimizing genetic screens and manipulating the genome of the worm.  

His laboratory dissects synaptic function in the simplest organism with a well-defined nervous system – the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. The group identifies mutant worms with defects in synaptic proteins by forward genetic screens for worm mutants with behavioral defects or generates directed mutations in known synaptic genes.  Then they use biochemistry, electrophysiology, fluorescence microscopy and electron microscopy to examine the role of the protein in the synapse from as many angles possible. Based on inferences from the mutant phenotype, they develop a hypothesis for how the protein functions. Predictions for structural variants are made from these models and tested in transgenic animals. These results can be used as a springboard for studies in other systems, linking biochemical models of protein function and studies of the vertebrate brain.

Work in the Jorgensen laboratory can be classified into four categories: neurotransmitters, exocytosis, endocytosis, and genome editing.
