NPOD Seminar - Judith Eisen (Online via Zoom)

Developmental interactions between the microbiome and the nervous system

Date: Time: 12:00 pm–1:00 pm
via Zoom
Contact: Verona Skomski,
Judith S. Eisen is a Professor of Biology the University of Oregon. She conducts fundamental research in the specification and patterning of the vertebrate nervous system with a focus on developmental interactions between the nervous system, immune system, and host-associated microbiota. Dr. Eisen is a member of the Institute of Neuroscience at the University of Oregon.
Dr. Eisen and the members of her lab are interested in discovering how cells become committed to differentiate their specific properties during embryonic development. They have focused their attention on neurons and neural crest cells in embryonic zebrafish. Judith Eisen was the first person to describe individually identified vertebrate spinal motoneurons. More recently she demonstrated requirements for the enteric nervous system to regulate bacterial competition and composition within the intestinal microbiota and how changes in the microbiota positively and negatively impact intestinal health.
