Webinar: ACD Kent State Univ - RNAscope™ & HiPlex Technology Webinar.
2021 March 3 ACD Kent State Univ - RNAscope™ & HiPlex Technology Webinar
Aleisha Moore, Ph.D.
William Noftz, Ph.D.
Dr. Lique Coolen will provide an overview of studies in her laboratory that examine the impact of spinal cord injury on the spinal reflex generator for sexual function in the lumbar spinal cord in male rats. Recent evidence of injury-induced changes in transcript levels of neuropeptides and identification of localization of receptors in this spinal generator using RNAscope in situ hybridization will be presented. Furthermore, pharmacological experiments towards treatment development will be introduced.
Dr. Aleisha Moore will present work in her laboratory identifying changes in neuronal circuits controlling fertility that may lead to polycystic ovarian syndrome, the most common cause of infertility in women worldwide. In her talk, Dr. Moore will focus on how she used RNAscope HiPlex technology in a mouse model of PCOS to evaluate changes in gene expression patterns within complicated and heterogenous hypothalamic neuronal circuits that may underlie the pathogenesis of PCOS.
