    Not satisfied with nature’s vast catalyst repertoire, we want to create new protein catalysts and expand the space of genetically encoded enzyme functions. I will describe how we use the most powerful biological design process, evolution, to optimize existing enzymes and invent new ones, thereby circumventing our profound ignorance of how sequence encodes function. Using chemical intuition and mimicking nature’s evolutionary processes, we can generate whole new enzyme families that catalyze synthetically important reactions not known in biology. Recent successes include highly selective formation of C-Si and C-B bonds, anti-Markovnikov alkene oxidation, and alkyne cyclopropanation to make highly strained carbocycles, all in living cells. Extending the capabilities and uncovering the mechanisms of these new enzymes derived from natural iron-heme proteins provides a basis for discovering new biocatalysts for increasingly challenging reactions. These new capabilities increase the scope of molecules and materials we can build using synthetic biology and move us closer to fully DNA-programmed chemical synthesis.

    Throughout the history of neuroscience, a large set of model systems has been used for studying a large variety of questions. These model systems were frequently chosen for their unique experimental advantages, but studying them also provided a wider perspective on basic questions: By examining the manifestation of a given biological phenomenon across different species, one could separate the salient or fundamental from the transient or variable. In my talk I will focus on two of our studies in reptiles: sleep in bearded dragons and visual processing in red eared sliders. I will show how we can use turtles for understanding structure function relations in neural circuits and how we can use lizards for exploring the organization of collective activity during sleep. In addition, I will show that such studies provide a new u! nderstanding of the evolution of brain dynamics.

    AbstractShow full text abstract about Lysosomal storage disorders (LSD), such as Gaucher disease (...»
    Lysosomal storage disorders (LSD), such as Gaucher disease (GD) and Niemann–Pick type C (NPC) disease, display neuronal degeneration accompanied by neuroinflammation. In the brain, innate immunity is maintained by microglia, the major myeloid cell population in the CNS. FACS analysis of end stage LSD models showed minor monocyte infiltration indicating that CNS-resident microglia are the major myeloid player in these pathologies. I will further discuss the functional contribution of microglia to LSD pathophysiology based on RNAseq analysis of microglia from various LSD animal models.
