    In this talk, I present an analogue of the Hardy-Littlewood conjecture on the asymptotic distribution of prime constellations in the setting of short intervals in function fields of smooth projective curves over finite fields.
    I will discuss the definition of a "short interval" on a curve as an additive translation of the space of global sections of a sufficiently positive divisor E by a suitable rational function f, and show how this definition generalizes the definition of a short interval in the polynomial setting.
    I will give a sketch of the proof which includes a computation of a certain Galois group, and a counting argument, namely, Chebotarev density type theorem.

    This is a joint work with Tyler Foster.

    Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is the most common leukemia in the Western world. The disease is characterized by decreased apoptosis and accumulation of mature B lymphocytes. We have previously shown that CD74 induces a downstream cascade that regulates CLL survival. Recently, we showed that CD74-intracellular domain interacts with the transcription factors RUNX and NF-B and binds to proximal and distal regulatory sites enriched for genes involved in apoptosis, immune response and cell migration. One of CD74 target genes is CD84. Our results demonstrate that CD84 mediates the interaction of CLL cells with their microenvironment inducing cell survival. In addition, activation of CD84 elevates PD-L1 expression on CLL cells and their microenvironment which interact with PD-1 expressed on T cells. Our results suggest CD84 blockade as a novel therapeutic strategy to reverse tumor-induced immune suppression.

    Current global prosperity is based on fossil fuels that provides energy required for our luxuriant way of life but are unsustainable. Biofuels, produced mainly from cellulosic plant-derived biomass, are the current practical alternative. The cellulolytic bacterium (Pseudo)Bacteroides cellulosolvens is a good candidate for biomass degradation towards improved biofuels production. Recently, we sequenced the B. cellulosolvens genome, and discovered that this bacterium produces the most intricate multi-enzyme cellulosome system known. Subsequent comprehensive bioinformatic analysis revealed an unprecedented number of cellulosome-related components, thus providing novel insight into the architecture, composition and function of the most intricate and extensive cellulosomal system known today.

    Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) is a non-invasive technique that allows the measurement of multiple metabolites in the brain in vivo at the same time. These MR visible metabolites are primarily located in the intracellular compartments and preferentially concentrated in certain cell types. For instance, N-acetylasparate and glutamate are predominantly located in neurons, total creatine (creatine + phosphocreatine) and choline containing compounds are found in both neuronal and glial cells, and myo-inositol is thought to be localized exclusively in astrocytes. In the first part of my presentation, I will focus on the application of 1H MRS to study aging of the brain and brain tumors. In the second part of my presentation, I will concentrate on hyperpolarized 13C work in the animal brain which focuses on validating the ability to quantitatively estimate the TCA cycle rate and examination of the effect of various levels of brain activity on the detection of metabolic products from hyperpolarized pyruvate.
