    Science Friday - Dr. Theisen

    Speaker: Christopher Theisen, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Biochemistry, KCUMB | Read biography
    Summary: Dr. Theisen’s research focuses on studying the inherent cellular pathways that contribute to neuronal survival to find targets of therapeutic inter-vention for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. His work has led to evidence that neurons exposed to anesthetic agents can increase cellular protective pathways. In addition, overexpression of an enzyme that generates NAD+ is protective in a Parkinson’s disease model. He will also discuss the future use of animal models to study cellular protection in the brain.
