 Biography
Research Interest :

Prof Sheehan’s proteomics research group is currently mainly interested in effects of oxidative stress on proteins, especially on thiol groups, within proteomic separations. We are especially interested in developing methods for labelling and enriching for oxidatively-modified proteins which may arise in oxidative stress conditions but also in sub-stress redox homeostasis scenarios. We have applied labeling and selection approaches to two distinct research areas. 1. Chronic kidney disease. This is a key contributor to human mortality and, while it has various causes (such as diabetic nephropathy or ageing), it is usually associated with oxidative stress which triggers fibrosis and loss of kidney function. We have identified proteins in which tyrosines are nitrosylated and also targets for cysteine oxidation and carbonylation in animal models for hypertension. 2. Environmental toxicology. Many environmental pollutants trigger oxidative stress and this can be an early marker of deteriorating environmental status. Using sentinel species in the aquatic environment we have recently applied redox proteomics to detection of effects in response to nanoparticles, pharmaceuticals, drugs of abuse and other emerging categories of environmental pollutants. We have also applied these methods to compare remediation and control sites and even to probe extreme environments such as deep-sea vents.

Dr. Yi’s research focuses on a better understanding of the basic biology of insulin signaling and the etiology of insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes (T2D), as well as their complications.  Dr. Yi and his group are using a combination of clinical, biological, and proteomic approaches to better comprehend insulin signaling and the associated problems that occur with obesity and T2D.  Studying insulin signaling in humans is challenging.  Dr. Yi’s laboratory has developed state-of-the-art techniques that can be used to better define and understand the effect of insulin in key metabolic tissues in humans such as skeletal muscle.  These approaches are useful models for studying cell signaling pathways in general, and especially their regulation by protein phosphorylation and protein-protein interactions. In addition to directing his independent laboratory working on insulin signaling both in vitro and in vivo, Dr. Yi also directs the Proteomics Laboratory in the Center for Metabolic and Vascular Research.  The Proteomics Laboratory is well equipped with two 2D-HPLC-ESI-MS/MS systems, including one Thermo LTQ-FT-Ultra.  It is one of the most sensitive instruments with high mass resolution and mass accuracy available for complex proteomic studies. Proteomics offers the capability to simultaneously quantify multiple proteins, protein-protein interactions, and protein phosphorylation, providing a better picture of complex protein networks.

 Biography
Research Interest :

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection affects 3% of the world population (2% of the US population). HCV persists in the large majority of infected patients. We are using a combination of proteomics and gene silencing technologies to identify cellular proteins involved in HCV replication in hepatocytes. We are also studying HCV-related hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The incidence of HCV-associated HCC is rising in the United States and is likely to triple over the next 10 to 20 years. This new trend is largely due to the high prevalence of HCV infection in the population. The overall survival rate of HCC is poor because most patients are diagnosed when the tumor is in an advanced stage. Our group has embarked on a major effort to integrate transcriptomics and proteomics for identifying new markers for early diagnosis of HCC and for identifying defective signaling pathways and their signature in hepatocytic transformation. We are also using mouse models of HCC to identify molecular events associated with hepatocarcinogenesis.

Biography :

The Myler laboratory played a key role in sequencing the "Tritryp" genomes, revealing that the protein-coding genes are arranged in long polycistronic gene clusters. Using genome-scale approaches such as microarray-based transcript mapping and chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP-chip), as well as more traditional molecular approaches such as electrophoretic mobility shifts assays, affinity chromatography, and in vitro transcription, we are now elucidating the molecular mechanisms involved in RNAPII-mediated transcription of protein-coding genes in L. major. In collaboration with Dan Zilberstein (at Technion, Israel), we are using genome-wide approaches (such as RNA-seq and tandem mass spectrometry), to identify and characterize changes in gene expression during differentiation from the insect form (promastigotes) to the mammalian form (amastigotes) of L. donovani and to elucidate the signaling pathways involved in this process. I am also PI of the NIAID-funded Seattle Structural Genomics Center for Infectious Disease (SSGCID), which includes investigators at Seattle BioMed, Emerald Biostructures, University of Washington and Pacific Northwest National Laboratories. To-date, we have solved over 250 three dimensional protein structures from NIAID Category A-C pathogens and organisms causing emerging or re-emerging infectious diseases. These protein structures serve as a blueprint for structure-based drug development, as well as facilitating vaccine development and other basic research.

Biography :

Dr. Mingyi Chen ia  a hematopathologist with extensive laboratory background in molecular and cell biology. As a physician scientist, he has devoted his career largely to biomedical research toward malignant hematologic disease. His long-term research goals are to define the molecular pathogenesis of lymphoma/leukemia. Thus, his laboratory primarily focuses on both the genetic and epigenetic alterations of endothelial cells and hematopoietic cells, with each project guided by methods intended to elucidate basic principles as well as practical solutions. Lymphoma/leukemia and other hematological problems are the primary diseases against which advancements in his laboratory are targeted, but the goal is to provide insights that will be applicable to a number of other cancer types and metabolic/degenerative disorders. Through cutting-edge technologies and broadly collaborative approaches, he is also committed to build a strong, unique and competitive research program that will ultimately benefit patients.

Biography :

Dr Kaur obtained a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in 1999 from Government College for Girls, Chandigarh, India majoring Chemistry, Zoology and Botany. Dr Kaur was awarded a M.Sc. degree in Microbiology in 2001 from Guru Nanak Dev University majoring Microbiology, Genetics and Biochemistry. Dr Kaur’s studies demonstrated that the soil samples from various sites in Amritsar, India showed the presence of actinomyctes. Dr Kaur was awarded a Ph.D. degree from Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), the largest institute for patient care and medical research in Chandigarh, India. During this time, Dr Kaur identified and characterized acid-shock induced outer membrane proteins (ASP) in Enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAEC), and elucidated the mechanisms by which these bacteria adapt and grow in the acid shock environment of stomach. Dr Kaur demonstrated for the first time the stress proteome in EAEC and found that these acid-shock proteins show cross reactivity with Heat Shock Proteins (HSP). The putative ASP with cell surface associated with an acid-tolerant phenotype provides new information regarding EAEC pathogenesis in humans.Dr Kaur has published 25 scientific articles, book chapters and reviews. Dr Kaur’s studies have been selected for poster presentations at 30 national and international conferences. More recently, Dr Kaur has been selected as an invited speaker to 6 international and national conferences. Dr Kaur has played major role in the advisory responsibilities in undergraduate (15), international undergraduate (53), graduate (2) postdoctoral (3) and medical residents (1) training, and in teaching at Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine, Scott and White Hospital and Clinic, Temple College, Temple, TX and Morehouse School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA.

Since joining UC Davis, he has led proteomic projects involving biomarker discovery in human biofluids and proteomic characterization of diverse sample types, including cancer stem cells. In addition, his research interests involve the search for medical countermeasures to combat category A select agent pathogens and drug-resistant pathogens of military concern, including broad spectrum antimicrobial drugs and vaccine development. Dr. Chromy earned his Ph.D. in biochemistry from Northwestern University, where he studied protein biochemistry of the amyloid β protein, the cause of Alzheimer’s disease. He co-discovered a new form of the protein and holds several patents on the discovery and application of these toxic, oligomeric structures (called ADDLs). Earlier work at the University of Chicago, where he graduated with a BA in biology, involved the examination of neuronal membrane receptor proteins (serotonin and opioid), where he developed his long-standing interest in biophysical approaches to study protein structure/function.

 Biography
Research Interest :

My research interests include proteomic science and technology. Specifically, I am interested in how proteins change structure and function, especially in the context of human disease. In particular, I am interested in infectious disease research and how the host responds to pathogens. I am also interested in protein biomarker discovery and drug discovery. I have searched for both antimicrobials and anti-cancer agents. I am also interested in biophotonic technologies, including the use of dual polarization interferometry for studying protein-protein and protein-small molecule interactions, and optical traps to study single cell host-pathogen interactions.

Biography :

In 2000, I completed my PhD in Marine Zoology, with an emphasis on larval ecology, settlement and metamorphosis and biofouling in cooling water systems in nuclear power plants, at the University of Madras. Immediately after my graduation, I joined Prof PY Qian’s larval biology laboratory at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong, as a Post-doctoral Fellow. During these days, using multi-faceted approaches (from classical through to the most modern molecular/statistical techniques) I have examined ecological concepts/questions related to larval settlement and then studied the response of benthic population/community, especially early life-stages, to a variety of environmental stressors and addressed several scientific and practical issues of coastal zone management and environmental impact assessment (i.e. recovery of both micro- and macro communities in coastal areas after sewage discharge and dumping of contaminated mud). I have authored over 45 peer-reviewed scientific publications on topics including marine ecology, larval biology, marine microbial ecology, developmental biology and environmental proteomics. Currently I am holding an Assistant Professor position in the School of Biological Sciences of the University of Hong Kong (HKU) and also serve as a Resident Scientist in Swire Institute of Marine Science of HKU.
