Naresha Saligrama is a fifth year student working in Dr. Cory Teuscher’s laboratory who will give two oral presentations and one poster presentation at the EHRS. The titles of his talks are, “EVIDENCE SUPPORTING THE EXISTENCE OF A NOVEL HISTAMINARGIC PATHWAY IN THE REGULATION OF EXPERIMENTAL ALLERGIC ENCEPHALOMYELITIS SUSCEPTIBILITY,” and “COMBINATORIAL ROLES FOR HISTAMINE H1-H2 AND H3-H4 RECEPTORS IN AUTOIMMUNE INFLAMMATORY DISEASE OF THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM.” His poster presentation will be, “H1R SIGNALING IN ANTIGEN PRESENTING CELLS IS DISPENSABLE FOR ELICITING PATHOGENIC T CELLS IN EXPERIMENTAL ALLERGIC ENCEPHALOMYELITIS.” The meeting is May 2-6 in Belfast, Ireland. Congratulations on this great opportunity.
I graduated from UVM and, after a research tech position in a pharmaceutical company, am back in Vermont in the CMB program. I work in the Berger lab researching the structure/function of the longest isoform of the tau protein, the 4RL, and how it interacts with microtubules and the motor protein kinesin. Miranda Redmond
