Stroke/ADRD T32 Students Present at Society for Neuroscience Meeting

Stroke and Its Alzheimer’s Disease Related Dementias (ADRD) T32 students recently presented at the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) meeting in Washington D.C. held November 11-15th, 2023. This was an exciting and impactful opportunity for these students, as this meeting is currently the largest annual global neuroscience conference. It is so large, it typically attracts upwards of 30,000 attendees. *Not all of the students that presented shared their titles with the Training Tribune, but below are a handful of the abstracts presented:

Saina Sanjay Prabhu & Nicole Eminhizer:    S Prabhu, N Eminhizer, A Hanshew, E.Kelley, JW Simpkins, P Chantler. “Chronic stress accelerates cerebral hypoperfusion and cognitive decline in Alzheimer’s triple transgenic mice.”

Nicole Eminhizer & Saina Sanjay Prabhu:    NM Eminhizer, A Hanshew, S Prabhu, S Ball, A Giromini, R King, E Kelley, PD Chantler. "Does Xanthine Oxidase accelerate Alzheimer's Disease-related pathologies in a high fat and fructose diet?" 

Anna Korol:    AS Korol, AK Adcock, and V Gritsenko. “Quantifying changes in muscle activity related to postural forces produced during reaching by people with chronic hemiparesis.” 

Anna Korol:    AS Korol, AK Adcock, and V Gritsenko. “Quantifying changes in muscle activity related to forces of intra-limb coordination produced during reaching by people with chronic hemiparesis.”

James Scripter:    J Scripter, G Jones, M Hruska. “Dendritic spine nano-architecture underlies selective vulnerability of synapses to Amyloid-beta synaptotoxicity”. 

Brianna Clary:    BL Clary, CB Beswick, B Pacheco Pereira, D Komandooru, CG Hernandez, BD Kirby, M Al-Humaire, DC Nwafor, D Dakhlallah, CM Brown. “Endothelial cell deletion of tissue-nonspecific alkaline phosphatase exacerbates neurovascular unit dysfunction and alter circulating extracellular vesicle profiles in experimental ischemic stroke.”

All T32 students in all four funded programs are encouraged to present their work often, and some programs offer additional travel expenses for students to do so. Look for communications from the HSC Office of Research & Graduate Education regarding upcoming opportunities to apply for T32 programs. Congratulations to the Stroke/ADRD team on their successful presentations!
