About the Speaker(s)

In 2019, I was appointed as an Assistant Professor, at UT Health SA’s Barshop Institute for Longevity and Aging studies and the Department of Medicine, Diabetes Division. My current research efforts are focused on studying the role of ceramides, important signaling molecules that in excess become lipotoxic, in the context of AD, diabetes, and aging. In addition, I am starting to develop a new line of research in collaboration with Dr. Sarah Hopp focused on studying phospholipase C gamma 2 (PLCγ2), whose gene has been recently strongly associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Finally, I continue collaborating with Dr. Han in multiple lipid metabolism-oriented AD, aging, and diabetes projects.
