Taubman Tech Talk: Proteomic mapping of endocrine communication

FOUND IN: Events, Research Event

Date

Time

5:00pm - 6:00pm

Location

Danto Auditorium / Zoom

Description

Join us Thursday, November 18 at 5 p.m., when Stanford University researcher Jonathan Long, PhD will present “Proteomic mapping of endocrine communication.”

This Taubman Technology Talk will feature our return to live presentations at the Danto Auditorium in the Frankel Cardiovascular Center.  The event also will be simulcast via Zoom for those unable to attend in person.

Secreted proteins and polypeptides represent a fundamental axis of endocrine communication. Dr. Long will discuss his development of chemoproteomic technologies for the global mapping of cell type specific secretomes directly in mice. His laboratory applies these technologies to uncover new pathways of tissue crosstalk in energy and nutrient homeostasis.

Dr. Long’s contributions in the areas of lipid biochemistry and energy homeostasis have been recognized by numerous awards from the National Institutes of Health and the American Diabetes Association.

Dr. Long is an Assistant Professor of Pathology and an Institute Scholar of Stanford ChEM-H (Chemistry, Engineering & Medicine for Human Health). Prior to arriving to Stanford in 2018, Dr. Long completed his Ph.D. in Chemistry at Scripps Research with Benjamin F. Cravatt and his postdoctoral work at Harvard Medical School/Dana-Farber Cancer Institute with Bruce M. Spiegelman.

At Stanford, the Long laboratory studies signaling pathways in control mammalian energy metabolism. The lab focuses on metabolic hormones and other circulating hormone-like molecules. The long-term goal of this work is to discover new endocrine pathway of energy metabolism that can be translated into therapeutic opportunities for obesity, metabolic disease, and other age-associated chronic diseases.

If you plan to attend the in-person event, please notify Glen Walker via glenwalk@med.umich.edu so that we may monitor room capacity limits.  This in-person event will comply with Michigan Medicine policies. Please note that masks or face coverings are still required for all staff, patients and visitors while inside Michigan Medicine facilities and the courtyard of the main medical campus, regardless of vaccination status.
