Su to present special Nutrigenomics Seminar, November 28, 11:30 a.m.
18 Nov 2011
Qiaozhu Su from the University of Toronto, Canada, a faculty candidate in the Department of Nutrition and Health Sciences, will present a seminar entitled "Mitochondrial stress and ER stress in nutrient-surplus induced hepatic insulin resistance" at 11:30 a.m. on Monday, November 28, in the Nebraska East Union Sunflower Room. Su’s research background includes emphasis on energy metabolism, pathophysiology of molecular, and cellular singling on the onset of cardiovascular diseases and type-2 diabetes. Her research interests focus on studying the molecular mechanisms and cellular stress signaling (mitrochondrial and ER stress) underlying the onset of metabolic diseases (e.g. cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity) in the genetic intervention and/or overnutrition induced animal models by applying proteomic and lipidomic approaches.
A reception will follow the seminar with refreshments available. All interested faculty, students, and staff are invited to attend
