Research Seminar Series
M.I.N.D. Institute Auditorium (2825 50th Street, Sacramento)
Friday, April 5, 2013
9:00 am – 10:30 am
Speakers: LaSalle Research Program (Janine LaSalle, PhD, and Weston Powell, PhD)
Title: Epigenetics of ASD, and Long, non-coding RNAs at the heart of Prader-Willi and Angelman Syndromes
Janine LaSalle, PhD, is a Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of California, Davis, with memberships in the Genome Center, Rowe Program in Human Genetics, and the MIND Institute. Dr. LaSalle serves on the editorial board of the journal Human Molecular Genetics and Molecular Autism, scientific advisory boards of the International Rett Syndrome Foundation and Dup15q Alliance Foundation. The research focus in Dr. LaSalle’s laboratory is on epigenetics of neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism, Rett syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, Angelman syndrome, and 15q duplication syndrome.
Weston T. Powell received his PhD from UC Davis in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in 2013 while being mentored by Dr. Janine LaSalle and is a member of the Physician-Scientist Training Program. As part of the LaSalle lab he has investigated the role of long, non-coding RNAs in the pathogenesis of Prader-Willi syndrome and in directing epigenetic transcriptional regulation at the locus and genome-wide.
