7:30 PM: Presentation
Understanding the complex events leading to cellular pathology and disease states in humans is critical to developing new treatment options for affected individuals. In this regard, quantitative fluorescent imaging approaches have provided valuable insight into our understanding of many diseases. I will discuss how my lab utilized live and fixed cell fluorescent microscopy to understand aspects of Human Immunodeficiency Virus-Type-1 (HIV-1) infection and the pathological properties of α-synuclein, a protein critical to the development of Parkinson’s disease.

Bio Sketch: Edward Campbell received his doctoral degree from the University of Illinois Chicago and went on to complete a postdoctoral position in molecular biology at Northwestern University. He has published extensively in the fields of virology and molecular biology and served on The Foundations of AIDS research Scientific Advisory Committee. Currently, he is an assistant professor at the Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology where his lab studies the interactions occurring between retroviruses, such as HIV-1, and cellular restriction factors.
