    BIOMED PhD Thesis Defense
     
    Title:
    Protein-coding Hotspots in the Human Genome: Annotation, Significance, and Their Conservation in Animal Models
        
    Speaker:
    Debra V. Klopfenstein, PhD Candidate
    School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems
    Drexel University

    Advisor:
    Will Dampier, PhD
    Assistant Professor
    Department of Microbiology and  Immunology
    College of Medicine
    Drexel University

    Details:
    Uncovering understudied genes that are not yet associated with disease, but that have common functions with nearby genes that are not in the same gene family, can lead towards further understanding of these molecular mechanisms and may reveal novel drug targets. Previous studies of utilizing population genetics approaches did not focus on the chromosomal topology of a large number of major diseases on the human genome.

    Clustering algorithms, augmented for this thesis to run on the linear topology of the human genome, identified the densest clusters with ten or more genes, called hotspots. Enrichment analysis on the hotspots finds genes which both share a genomic hotspot and significant gene functions to highlight genes that are understudied and/or are not yet associated with disease for further study.

    Methods developed for this thesis include: new ways to compare functions among a set of genes, even if the genes are in different species; a library for examining Gene Ontology relationships; and an augmented exploratory literature search experience using PubMed combined with public access citation data from the National Institute of Health’s Open Citation Collection (NIH-OCC).

    BIOMED Seminar

    Title:
    Ultrasound Technology: Applications and Research Efforts at Drexel
     
    Speaker:
    Mark E. Schafer, PhD
    Research Professor
    School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems
    Drexel University

    Details:
    Ultrasound technology has a wide range of applications, not only in healthcare, but throughout industry. This talk will first touch on that variety, and the interdisciplinary aspects of the ultrasound modality, from agriculture to oceanography, demonstrating the ubiquity of these controlled sound waves, and the power that comes from harnessing them. Probably every member of the audience has been “touched” by ultrasound, and the applications to healthcare include everything from assessing COVID status, to detecting pregnancy, to curing blindness, to removing blood clots, crushing kidney stones, to (almost) raising the dead.

    The second part of the talk will present some of the research efforts at Drexel that focus on applying ultrasound to wound care, with a holistic approach that spans mechanisms of action, device design, and patient care, both direct and tele-remote. The current efforts of the Drexel Wound Healing Team will be presented, along with opportunities to contribute to our work.

    Biosketch:
    Mark E. Schafer, PhD, recently joined Drexel’s School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems as a Research Professor. He has extensive expertise in ultrasound system development for medical applications, including combined ultrasound and therapeutic light sources for antibacterial treatment, as well as neurological applications of ultrasound. Dr. Schafer's experience includes diagnostic, therapeutic, and surgical ultrasound, as well as lithotripsy devices, from initial design, development and testing through regulatory submission and intellectual property protection.

    Dr. Schafer is PI on a just-awarded interdisciplinary Pennsylvania Commonwealth Universal Research Enhancement (CURE) grant. He has a PhD from Drexel University in Biomedical Engineering, an MS from Penn State University in Acoustics, and an SB from MIT in Electrical Engineering. He is a Fellow of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine and the Acoustical Society of America, and is President-Elect of the IEEE Ultrasonics Ferroelectrics and Frequency Control Society.
