NIH Director’s Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series

Upcoming Lectures

Travelling through tissues one cell at a time: the Human Cell Atlas and barrier tissues

October 31, 2018 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm
Sarah Teichmann, Ph.D. , Wellcome Sanger Institute

Dr. Teichmann's group seeks to elucidate general principles of gene expression and protein complex assembly. Her lab is trying to understand how changes in cell state are regulated at the transcriptomic and epigenetic levels by studying the differentiation of mouse T helper (Th) cells and embryonic stem cells (mESC) at the single cell level. Her lab uses and develops both computational and experimental approaches in the field of single cell genomics to address our questions.

What makes America great

November 7, 2018 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm
William A. Gahl, M.D., Ph.D. , National Human Genome Research Institute

Dr. Gahl studies the natural history, diagnosis, and treatment of rare genetic disorders such as cystinosis, Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome, sialic acid storage diseases, GNE myopathy, and disorders of platelets and pigmentation. He also investigates undiagnosed disorders under the aegis of the NIH Undiagnosed Diseases Program and Network, and pursues new disease discovery.

Lecture Title Forthcoming

November 13, 2018 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm
Gokhan S. Hotamisligil, M.D., Ph.D. , Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health

The major interest of Dr. Hotamisligil's laboratory is to study the regulatory pathways, which control glucose and lipid metabolism. His lab's biochemical and genetic studies focus on signal transduction using cultured mammalian cells as well as transgenic animals to identify specific abnormalities in these pathways, which are involved in human metabolic and inflammatory diseases including obesity, diabetes, fatty liver disease, atherosclerosis, and asthma.
