The focus is on neurological disorders for Sacramento State’s next presentation in the Regenerative Medicine Lecture series at 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 24, in the University Union Ballroom.
“Transcriptional regulation of genes implicated in neurological disorders” outlines the development of cellular delivery systems that can target the nervous system to treat disorders such as Huntington’s disease and CDKL5, which are difficult to treat, especially in children.
The presentation will be made by Kyle Fink from the UC Davis Medical Center. Fink has a Ph.D. in neuroscience from Central Michigan University and a Ph.D. in neuroimmunology from the University of Nantes, France. A member of several professional organizations, Fink serves as an advisor for HOPES, Huntington’s Outreach Project for Education.
This is a free community lecture.
