All are welcome to attend this week's seminar!
Dr. Johnathon Anderson, UC Davis Medical Center, will present “Stem Cell Exosomes: Secreted Vesicles for the Treatment of Inflammatory and Ischemic Diseases."
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) have been demonstrated
to facilitate tissue healing of ischemic tissue related diseases through release of prosurvival factors, including small lipid bound secreted vesicles called exosomes. Indeed, in recent years exosomes have been shown to recapitulate many of the tissue healing effects of MSC's. He will review his studies that demonstrate the therapeutic effects of MSC exosomes and elucidate potential mechanisms by which they exert these healing effects.
Dr. Kyle Fink, UC Davis, Neurology and Institute for Regenerative Cures, will present “Development of TALE and CRISPR/dCas9 therapeutics for genetically-linked neurological disorders.”
Kyle Fink, Ph.D. is an assistant professor in the
Department of Neurology. His lab is located in the
Stem Cell Program at the Institute for Regenerative Cures. He will discuss his work on therapeutic development for neurodegenerative diseases, brain injury, and some forms of brain cancer.

"The Stories We Tell" is the theme for this semester's Opera Workshop performances. But don't let the word opera throw you! A variety of musical genres have been selected to reflect a broad cross-section of the human experience, including musical theater, musical performance art, a staged version of a four-part choral work, and of course popular light opera. At the helm is Elisabeth Harrington, professor of music at HSU and the director of the Opera Workshop program.
Some of the stories being told include the melodic and heartfelt "Fathers of Fathers," featuring three men telling stories of their fathers from different stages of their lives; a scene from the Pulitzer Prize winning "Of Thee I Sing" which is a musical lampooning of American politics composed by George and Ira Gershwin; a story of manipulation through advertising called "Angry Birdsong;" a comic four-part harmony retelling of the cautionary tale "Hansel and Gretel;" and the hilarious Gallantry, which is a commentary on rampant commercialism in modern society told through a circa 1950s television soap opera which is constantly interrupted by sung commercials for a product no one needs.
Direction is by Elisabeth Harrington assisted by Jessie Rawson, John Chernoff accompanies the student singers on the piano, and costumes are by Catherine Brown.
Performances of "The Stories We Tell" are at the Gist Hall Theater on March 23rd through 26th, Thursday through Saturday evenings at 7:30 and on Sunday at 2:00.

Legendary singer-songwriter GRAHAM NASH is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee-with Crosby, Stills, and Nash and with the Hollies. He was also inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame twice, as a solo artist and with CSN, and he is a GRAMMY Award winner.
Nash’s passionate voice continues to be heard in support of peace, and social and environmental justice. The No Nukes/Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE) concerts he organized with Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt in 1979 remain seminal benefit events. In 2011, Nash was instrumental in bringing MUSE back to the forefront with a concert to benefit Japan disaster relief and groups promoting non-nuclear energy worldwide.
In September 2013, Nash released his long-awaited autobiography Wild Tales, which delivers an engrossing, no-holds-barred look back at his remarkable career and the music that defined a generation. The book landed him on the New York Times Best Sellers list, and will be released in paperback format this fall.
His new studio album This Path Tonight was released April 15, 2016
