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'm originally from Cooperstown, NY and I graduated from the University of Rochester in May of 2012 with B.S. in Cell and Developmental Biology. I was interested in the study of lung biology and felt that the CMB program would offer me a great opportunity to purse research in that field. Outside of the classroom I enjoy taking advantage of all that Vermont has to offer including skiing, hiking and other outdoor sports and activities. Bob Bauer
