NIH Director's Seminar Series

Telomeres are chromosome end capping structures. Critical shortening or over-lengthening of telomeres leads to a DNA damage response or delays in DNA replication, resulting in genome instability. It is believed that owing to its G-rich sequence, telomeres are especially susceptible to oxidative DNA damage, and also to formation of alternative DNA forms, both of which may impact telomere maintenance.

We investigate the hypothesis that oxidative DNA damage, inadequate DNA repair and aberrant DNA intermediate resolution would impact telomere maintenance and function. Using a combination of molecular, genetic, and biochemical approaches, we are probing the following questions: (1) the impact of oxidative stress and DNA damage on telomere maintenance, and its mechanistic basis; (2) the key genes that modulate reactive oxygen species (ROS) levels, oxidative DNA damage, and unique joint DNA intermediates at telomeres; and (3) the contributions of oxidative DNA damage and DNA repair/resolution deficiency to telomere defects in aging and cancer.

The 2015 Demystifying Medicine Series, which is jointly sponsored by FAES and NIH, will begin January 6th and includes the presentation of patients, pathology, diagnosis and therapy in the context of major disease problems and current research. Primarily directed toward Ph.D. students, clinicians and program managers, the course is designed to help bridge the gap between advances in biology and their application to major human diseases. Each session includes clinical and basic science components presented by NIH staff and invitees. All students, fellows and staff are welcome, as well.

The goal of the Alzheimer's Disease Research Summit 2015 is to continue the development of an integrated multidisciplinary research agenda to address critical knowledge gaps and accelerate discovery and delivery of successful interventions for people at all stages of the disease. Toward that goal, the 6-session agenda brings together speakers and panelists from different disciplines in academia, industry, federal agencies, private foundations, and public advocacy groups working on Alzheimer's and other complex diseases in an effort to share ideas and most effectively move research forward.
