"Life-threatening Infectious Diseases"

, Zoom link - https://ucdavis.zoom.us/s/94400355078 Dr. Casanova was appointed professor at Rockefeller University in 2008 and named HHMI investigator in 2014. Over the last 25 years, his laboratory discovered the first monogenic inborn errors of immunity, rare and common, which predispose otherwise healthy individuals to a single infectious disease, including a variety of viral, bacterial, and fungal infections. In response to the SARS-CoV2 Global Pandemic, Dr Casanova cofounded the COVID Human Genetic Effort with Helen Su at the NIAID. He discovered monogenic inborn errors of type I interferon immunity underlying severe forms of COVID-19 in previously healthy individuals. This led to his discovery that pre-existing autoantibodies to type I interferons account for at least 10% of severe cases. Dr. Casanova was recipient of multiple international awards, including the Dautrebande Prize (Belgium, 2004), Richard Lounsbery Award (USA/France, 2008), E.

"Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Whole Genome Evolution and Gene Co-Option Among the Carnivorous Plants"

College of Biological Sciences Speaker: Tanya Renner, Assistant Professor, The Pennsylvania State University Carnivorous plants provide ideal model systems for investigating both evolutionary transitions and convergence, because this unusual adaptation arose multiple times among angiosperms (possibly 10 times, among 5 orders) with remarkable cases of morphological and molecular convergence across deep time. Shared among these lineages is the ability to digest metazoans as a means to obtain essential nutrients (primarily nitrogen and phosphorus), a process that is determined in part by suites of digestive enzymes associated with morphologically diverse modified leaves that serve as trapping mechanisms. In all carnivorous plants studied so far, evidence points to co-option of common defense proteins for prey-responsive functions such as digestion; however, details concerning the origins, evolution and mechanisms of action of the relevant gene families remain only poorly understood. Dr. Tanya Renner and members of her laboratory examine th… Location of Event: Other. Cost: Free. Contact Email: minjhu@ucdavis.edu. Event Type: Free Events. Lectures and Seminars.

'The Right of Assembly Revisited' - Central Valley Foundation Lecture with Professor John Inazu

School of Law The right of the people peaceably to assemble is one of the most important and least understood of our civil liberties. In the past decade, legal scholarship has renewed attention to this right, prompting broader cultural and judicial engagement with its scope and meaning. At the same time, our country has witnessed protests emerging in a variety of contexts. What are, and what should be, the contours of an assembly right that accounts for both the interests of the government in maintaining order and the interests of the people in disrupting order for the sake of change? And how do we understand this right in a society marked by rapid changes in demographics, technology, and other factors?   REGISTER to receive the Zoom link. Location of Event: UC Davis Campus.

Active Reading to Improve Your Writing

GradPathways Writing and Publishing How often do you read an article or book and later forget the main arguments and/or significance of those arguments? Does this “forgetting” make your writing process more challenging?

Employing active reading strategies will help you to engage with and make critical connections among the scholarly texts that you will need to draw on when writing your dissertation chapters and articles. In this workshop, you come to see how reading and writing are interdependent, recursive processes.
