EOH Seminar: Redox LOXsisome – A Rheostat of Epithelial Death and Asthma Severity

 by Jinming Zhao, PhD

Graduate School of Public Health | Department of Environmental and Occupational Health presents:

Redox LOXsisome – a rheostat of epithelial death and asthma severity

Jinming Zhao, PhD
Research Associate Professor of Environmental and Occupational Health
Graduate School of Public Health
University of Pittsburgh

Research Highlight:
Dr. Zhao’s research focuses on airway epithelium physiology and cell biology in respiratory diseases. Given the sentinel role of the airway epithelium in asthma pathogenesis, it is critical for understanding the mechanisms underlying the airway epithelium inflammation and remodeling. Using primary Human Bronchial Epithelial cell models, Dr. Zhao has recently demonstrated the link between Th2 inflammation, arachidonic acid metabolism and ferroptosis (via 15LO1/PEBP1 interaction). His long-term research goal is identifying novel approach to dampen inflammatory processes in asthma.

Learning from our students/staff/faculty, nationally and internationally known scientists, practitioners and policymakers on issues of environmental, occupational and public health 

The EOH Seminar Series takes place every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month from 1:00pm – 2:00p.m (via Zoom). Through presentations and discussions, we aim to highlight the latest cutting-edge environmental health science research, promote public health, and enhance multidisciplinary collaborations between medical, public health specialists and community.  Moreover, we would like to highlight research from young investigators and our EOH students and fellows. In additional to topics of environmental and occupational health exposures, we will have presentations about social justice and diversity, women and children health, neurological disorders, cell metabolism and stem cells, metal toxicity, respiratory biology, redox biology, microbiology and host defense, and environmental epigenetics. Please stay-tuned!  

If you would like to attend a seminar or receive e-mail notices about future EOH seminar series, please contact Adam Orbell (aorbell@pitt.edu). If you have other questions about our EOH seminar series, please contact Winnie Tang (wat23@pitt.edu) and Bruce Pitt (brucep@pitt.edu).  We look forward to your participation
