A Synaptic Energy Crisis Entangled in Neurodegeneration

Mar 28,
  • Time:
  • Location: MPFI - Elmore Auditorium
  • Host: Vidhya Rangaraju
  • Speaker: Timothy A. Ryan

Dr. Ryan will discuss how the brain is a vulnerable metabolic organ that suffers acute functional decline when fuel delivery is compromised. We will discuss our new discoveries of key control points in controlling the efficacy of converting fuel into synaptic performance that is deeply intertwined with aspects of neurodegenerative disease.
