Fall 2022

Friday Seminars will take place at 3:10 pm in the Byker Auditorium


Friday, December 2 

Prof. Ron June from the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department at Montana State University will present "Applications of Metabolomics to Better Understand Osteoarthritis."

Abstract: The June Lab studies the most common degenerative joint disease, osteoarthritis (OA).  This disease causes pain, stiffness, and loss of function for more than 50% of the population over the age of 65.  This talk will present work involving metabolomic profiling of the fluid within the joint toward better understanding mechanisms of disease as well as moving toward early detection of OA.  The second part of the talk will focus on the cells of the cartilage within joints, articular chondrocytes.  Results will detail studies investigating the role of central metabolism in the chondrocyte response to applied mechanical loading, as well as a systems biology method of calculating pathway-wide reaction rates based on metabolomic data. 

Host: Prof. Brian Bothner
