Epi-Brain Journal Club November 19, 2012, 8:30 am - 9:30 am Room 109 Parran Hall

The EpiBrain Journal Club will host its next meeting on November 19th.  Dr. Caterina Rosano will facilitate a discussion regarding inflammation and the brain. Two papers will be discussed at this meeting. The first is a review article by Rosano, Marsland and Gianaros entitled, “Maintaining Brain Health by Monitoring Inflammatory Processes: a Mechanism to Promote Successful Aging” focusing on the effects of peripheral inflammation on the brain. The second article, authored by Venneti, Lopresti and Wiley entitled, “Molecular Imaging of Microglia/Macrophages in the Brain” discusses the role of neuroinflammation in activating microglia/macrophages and how this can be imaged using a PET and MRI. Dr. Clayton Wiley will join Journal Club attendees for this discussion.
