EOH Seminar: "Every Weakness Contains Within Itself a Strength" by Yulia Tyurina, PhD

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

Every Weakness Contains Within Itself a Strength: Discovery of New Metabolic Pathways and Unknown Signaling Functions of Ancient Phospholipids, Plasmalogens

by Yulia Tyurina, PhD
Research Professor
Department of Environmental and Occupational Health
Graduate School of Public Health
University of Pittsburgh

Research Highlight: Dr. Tyurina’s research focuses on the fundamental role of phospholipids and their oxygenated species in cell death pathways.   Given stress responses in cells generate number of reactive oxygen species that determine cell fate, it is critical for understanding how these reactive oxygen species trigger cell death pathways including apoptosis, necroptosis, ferroptosis and mitophagy. Recently, Dr Tyurina has reported the role of oxidized or hydrolyzed phospholipids in regulating the reactivation of dormant tumor cells (Sci Transl Med. 2020). All in all, Dr. Tyurina’s research findings provide new insights into the mechanisms regulating cell fate in disease pathogenesis and suggest possible therapeutic approach to target the dysregulated pathways.

Friday, February 5, 2021
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
via Zoom

--------------------

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!
