Fine-Tuning Disease: Driving Proteins for Neurological Health
Surgeons, advanced practice providers, fellows, residents, and medical students in various surgical specialties and subspecialties need to receive regular updates on advances in surgical care and clinical practices. Novel technologies and procedures will be examined as means to improve the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions requiring surgical intervention. The series aims to expand the knowledge of learners, enhance surgical skills, increase surgical efficiency, disseminate surgical best practices, and improve surgical outcomes.
Physicians, medical students, fellows, and residents.
At the conclusion of the session, the participants should be able to:
Identify and normalize the levels of disease driving proteins, even in mature brain while discussing the reverse disease features in preclinical models opening the path for clinical trials.
Understand how gene identification is giving us insight into disease mechanism.
Learn that the protein that causes Rett syndrome is dosage sensitive and that there are disorders caused either by it’s reduction or increase.
