Metabolic Regulation of the Blood Brain Barrier

Dr. Debra Mays, Wright State University

"My research focuses upon mechanisms controlling neurodegeneration and cancer. I have found that changes in oligodendrocytes, the myelinating cells of the brain, cause non-cell autonomous effects upon the surrounding neurons, astrocytes, and vasculature within the nervous system—causing the manifestation of neuropsychiatric behaviors and changes in the blood brain barrier. Because both cellular and behavioral phenotypes could be reversed with the administration of an antioxidant, my goal is to define the role of metabolism dysfunction in neurodegeneration and neuropsychiatric diseases as well as explore the roles of oxidants/antioxidants in cancer development and progression."

Adaptation to climate and climate change in insects

Dr. Joel Kingsolver, University of North Carolina

Animals adapt to local climatic conditions through a variety of physiological, morphological and behavioral traits.  Insects have distinct life stages that inhabit different microclimates, and that differ in their capacities for movement and behavior. How will these differences in trait types and life stages influence the ecological and evolutionary responses of insects to recent and future climate changes?  For example, which types of traits and which life stages are more likely to adapt to climate change?  Do phenotypic plasticity and thermoregulatory behavior accelerate or retard evolutionary responses to climate change? I will describe laboratory, field, historical and modeling studies of Colias butterflies that explore some of these questions.
