Visiting Assistant Professor from South Korea Departing

Special Visiting Professor Research Conference Today

At the completion of a very successful one-year stay in the CPB Research Laboratory, Dr. Jae-Kwang Shim and his family (wife and 2 sons) will return to their home country of South Korea. According to Dr. Burkhard Mackensen, Jae-Kwang will be dearly missed as a very skilled and well-trained physician-scientist who has greatly contributed to a number of projects in the CPB research laboratory. Besides completing his own research project that examined the neuroprotective potential of Pregabalin (Lyrica©) following deep hypothermic circulatory arrest (DHCA) in rats, Dr. Shim played a leading role in bringing another project to publication for 2011 (Qing M, Shim JK, Grocott HP, Sheng H, Mathew JP, Mackensen GBJ. Thorac Cardiovasc Surg. 2011 Jan 28. [Epub ahead of print]: The effect of blood pressure on cerebral outcome in a rat model of cerebral air embolism during cardiopulmonary bypass.

Monday, February 21, 2011 | 4:00-5:00 p.m. | 5685 HAFS

Starting in March, Dr. Shim will resume his prior position in Cardiac Anesthesia at the Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, and Anesthesia and Pain Research Institute, Yonsei University Health System, Seoul, Korea. As a reflection of his prior and current accomplishments, Jae-Kwang will be promoted to Associate Professor in March of 2011. Congratulations and we wish him continued success and a safe journey home.

“Neurotrophine-mediated PI 3-kinase Signaling in Neuronal Survival and Drug Development” Keqiang Ye, PhD

Professor, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Emory University School of Medicine

My presentation dissects how NGF-mediated nuclear PIKE/PI3K signaling cascades regulate neuronal survival through biochemical purification. To search for the physiological actions of this signaling, we generated PIKE knockout mice and found that PIKE plays an essential role for neuronal survival. In order to identify the neurotrophin mimetic compounds, we established a cell-based drug screening assay and successfully identified and characterized a TrkB receptor agonist. Further, we had assessed the physiological effectd of this compound in a variety of animal models. Identification of this orally bioactive compound provides a powerful therapeutic option for various neurological diseases.
