Next NIH WALS event: Scalable platforms for generating RNA sensors and controllers on October 23, 2019 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm - Special DeWitt Stetten, Jr. Lecture.

Christina D. Smolke, Ph.D., Stanford University
Biosensors are key components in engineered biological systems that interface with the large biochemical space in living cells and their environment. Aptamers, functional nucleic acid molecules that bind ligands, provide a powerful sensing element for many classes of molecules of interest. Although procedures such as SELEX have been quite successful in generating individual aptamers that bind proteins, generating small molecule aptamers has been more challenging due to the need to chemically modify the ligand to permit the recovery of binding sequences.
All WALS programming is supported by FAES. #research #science #RNA Christina Smolke #NIH

The NIH community is dedicated to improving our understanding of human health and, of course, the human brain. Check out our Human Neuroscience course (BIOL 325) for under $600. https://faes.org/ap This course will use a systems neuroscience approach to understanding the relationship between the structure and function of the human brain. Course material will span the level of cellular neurophysiology of neurons and synaptic signaling to circuits and brain regions involved in sensory processes, motor function, emotion, attention, and learning and memory. Neuroanatomy will be emphasized throughout the course. Deviation from normative structure and function will be considered through clinical case studies and translational research. Although the focus of this course will be the human brain, research from animal models, particularly non-human primates and rodents, will be included in the investigation of neuronal mechanisms. #NIH #neuroscience #brain #BRAINInitiative #science
