More Than Just Webinars – Aurora Scientific Virtual Poster Program

In case you missed it, we recently began working with budding scientists and early career researchers to help expose their research and on a global stage. This project provides an opportunity for scientists using Aurora Scientific equipment to present their research, discuss its importance, share user tips, tricks, best-practices and contribute to a forum that supports research innovation, collaboration and discovery.

It gives us great pleasure to see this project coming to fruition and our first set of posters focused on skeletal muscle research are now publicly accessible!  We have more posters well on their way that will be published soon, and if you want to learn more about this program and participating in this initiative, click here for details.

Presenter: Jordan Fuqua, MSc
Affiliation: Lira Lab, University of Iowa

During this presentation, Jordan discusses how autophagy and proteolytic processes are regulated in skeletal muscle, specifically looking at ULK1 and ULK2 and their roles in maintaining skeletal muscle homeostasis, morphology, protein aggregate degradation and autophagy.

Presenter: Alex Piacentini, MSc
Affiliation: Christopher Mendias Lab, Hospital for Special Surgery

During this virtual poster, Alex discusses how the MRL/MpJ mouse strain has been touted as a “superhealer”.  However, varying tissues have been reported to display different levels of healing ability. The Medias lab sought to test that ability in skeletal muscle.
