Racial Reconciliation, Institutional Morality, and the Social Life of DNA - Alondra Nelson, Columbia
Thu 2/21/2019 5:00PM - 8:00PM
University Club - Ballroom A

Alondra Nelson examines the recent use of genetic ancestry testing by the descendants of nearly three hundred enslaved men and women owned by Georgetown University, whom the institution’s Jesuit stewards sold to Southern plantations in 1838 in order to secure its solvency. The case of the GU 272 will be explored as a “reconciliation project”—a social endeavor in which DNA analysis is put to the use of repairing historic injury. 

Reception (5 p.m.) and lecture (6 p.m.) are jointly sponsored by the departments of Africana studies and human genetics and the Center for Bioethics & Health Law.

Fri 1/11/2019 12:00PM - 1:00PM
Public Health Lecture Hall (A115)

Inborn errors of energy metabolism are among the most common inherited disorders affecting ~1:5,000 people in the US. Three mitochondrial metabolic pathways are required for efficient energy production in eukaryotic cells – the electron transfer chain (ETC), fatty acid b-oxidation (FAO), and the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle. The ETC is organized into inner mitochondrial membrane supercomplexes that promote substrate channeling and catalytic efficiency. While previous studies have suggested functional interaction between FAO and the ETC, their physical interaction had never been demonstrated. Studies in the Vockley lab have now shown for the first time that FAO enzymes physically interact with electron transfer chain supercomplexes at two points. The FAO trifunctional protein interacts with the NADH-binding domain of complex I of the ETC, while electron transfer flavoprotein dehydrogenase interacts with ETC complex III. In addition, the FAO enzyme very long chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (VLCAD) physically interacts with TFP, thus creating a multi-functional energy protein complex. These findings provide first view of an integrated molecular architecture for the major energy generating pathways in mitochondria that ensures the safe transfer of unstable reducing equivalents from FAO to the ETC. The impact of these findings on understanding the pathophysiology of inborn errors of energy metabolism, and the development of novel therapeutic agents based on patient specific bioenergetic and genetic characteristics will be presented.

Public Health Auditorium (G23)

The Department of Human Genetics at the Graduate School of Public Health is hosting a panel discussion featuring a group of experienced regional biotechnology founders and entrepreneurs. Research is the process of understanding the world around us, and it is a dramatically different skill set from translation or commercialization which births solutions that have never existed before into the world. Though critical to realizing the potential impact of the massive knowledge-generation of our regional universities, related skills are not taught, facilitated, or even actively endorsed at a level concomitant to the importance of this endeavor. This panel will highlight courageous and passionate individuals who have embarked on unchaperoned journeys – what drove them and what they endured. We will have a lively discussion about how they have translated new knowledge into products to positively impact health. The hope is that a pattern emerges through this interactive moderated session that enables the regional community of thousands of researchers to unlock the true potential of their work.

Barbara Koenig

“Using ‘Deliberative’ Community Engagement to Guide Newborn Screening Policy”

Objectives:

  • Explain how novel sequencing technologies trouble existing compromises in state newborn screening programs. 
  • Describe how approaches based on deliberative democracy theory can help assess the “democratic deficit” in contemporary health policy debates.  
  • Clarify the distinction between diagnostic vs screening applications of whole genome sequencing technologies in newborns. 
  • Consider how best to balance individual informed consent by parents with community governance of
    newborn screening, a critical case study in public health ethics.

  • IF YOU NEED TO CANCEL OR RESCHEDULE a presentation, it is YOUR responsibility to find a substitute.
  • Please let the faculty facilitator know if you need a laptop or other media needs.
  • Presentations should begin with an introduction to the general topic area and what is interesting or important about the work being presented. Try to explain key concepts and definitions. Do not assume everyone in the audience is an expert or that everyone in the audience has read the paper.
