Project 3 - Tukey
Speaker: Dr. Ekihiro Seki, Project Leader
Presenting the research under the Research Project:
Effect of Underlying Liver Diseases on Fibrosis induced by Superfund Toxicants
Seminar Title: “A mechanism of CCl4-induced liver injury and fibrosis: The role of mitochondrial quality control regulated by Ubc13”
The UCSD Superfund Research Center holds a monthly Seminar Series in which participating laboratories, including Principal Investigators, postdoctoral trainees, and students report on their research plans and progress. The scientific presentations are followed by free discussions. These seminars play an essential role in disseminating data between the laboratories, as well as providing an opportunity for all members of the program to interact on a regular basis.
The seminars are mandatory for supported students of our Training Core and postdoctoral fellows that are supported by the research projects. All the Principal Investigators of our Center are encouraged to attend and there is always at least one representative from each Project and Core. Many collaborative activities, especially those between biomedical and non-biomedical projects, have resulted from these meetings.
