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 earned my Bachelor's degree in biology from the University of Vermont in 2010 and then joined the CMB program at UVM the same year. During my undergrad, I had the chance to work with Matthew Lord, PhD on a project that gave insight into the regulation of actin structure assembly within yeast cells. I am currently working with Dr. Lord on my PhD research. Luther Pollard
