Speakers

  • Walter Koroshetz, MD
    Director, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke
    Biography
      Dr. Koroshetz serves as Director of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. He joined NINDS in 2007 as Deputy Director and has held leadership roles in a number of NIH and NINDS programs including co-leading the NIH's BRAIN Initiative, the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience, the Traumatic Brain Injury Center collaboration between the NIH intramural and the Uniformed Health Services University, the Helping to End Addiction Long Term (HEAL) Initiative, the Common Fund's Undiagnosed Disease and the Acute to Chronic Pain Transition programs,.and he was instrumental in founding the NIH Office of Emergency Care Research, Before joining NINDS, Dr. Koroshetz served as Vice Chair of the neurology service and Director of stroke and neurointensive care services at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). He was a professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School (HMS) and led neurology resident training at MGH between 1990 and 2007. Over that same period, he co-directed the HMS Neurobiology of Disease Course with Drs. Edward Kravitz and Robert H Brown. A native of Brooklyn, New York, Dr. Koroshetz graduated from Georgetown University and received his medical degree from the University of Chicago. He trained in internal medicine at the University of Chicago and Massachusetts General Hospital. He then trained in Neurology and Neuroscience at MGH and Harvard Neurobiology focusing on how synaptic mechanisms might contribute to neuronal death. His early research in the lab and clinic focused on Huntington's disease and with the team at MGH performed the first study of pre-symptomatic testing based on linkage analysis. A major focus of his clinical research career was the development of measures in patients that reflect the underlying biology of their conditions. This led to brain the development and validation of imaging techniques including Magnetic Resonance (MR) spectroscopy in Huntington's disease; diffusion/perfusion MR and CT X-ray angiography and perfusion imaging in stroke. These stroke imaging tools are now commonplace in stroke care. Guided by these tools he pioneered acute clot removal for acute stroke patients with large artery occlusion which is now practiced at Comprehensive stroke centers around the country. He played a significant role in the revolution in acute stroke care in the US and the growth of the neurointensive care field.
    • Dario Alessi, FRS FMedSci FRSE
      Director, Professor of Signal Transduction, University of Dundee
      Biography
        Dario's research focuses on unravelling the roles of poorly characterised components which regulate protein phosphorylation or ubiquitylation pathways that are linked to human disease. Dario, obtained a BSc (1988) and PhD (1991) from the University of Birmingham, United Kingdom. He carried out postdoctoral at the University of Dundee from (1991 to 1997), where he became fascinated by protein kinases and how they are regulated by insulin, growth factors and other extracellular signals that control almost all aspects of cell biology. In 1997 Dario became a program leader in the MRC Protein Phosphorylation Unit, where he was appointed as its Director in 2012. Dario has contributed to our understanding of several disease relevant signal transduction pathways including PDK1 (diabetes and cancer), LKB1 (cancer), WNKs (blood pressure). Much of Dario's current work is focused on understanding LRRK2 and how mutations in this enzyme cause Parkinson's disease. Dario's work has contributed to approaches (LRRK2 kinase assay, LRRK2 Ser935 dephosphorylation assay, Rab phosphorylation assays) that have facilitated the development of inhibitors against LRRK2 that may be useful for the treatment of Parkinson's disease. Dario's lab contributed to the discovery and validation of the first physiological substrates for the Parkinson's disease LRRK2 protein kinase to be identified showing that LRRK2 directly phosphorylates a subset of the Rab GTPases on a residue lying within the middle of the effector interacting-switch II domain. Dario in collaboration with the Michael J Fox Foundation to better interrogate and understand LRRK2 biology and how it is impacted by mutations, environment and inhibitors that are being developed and assessed. Dario also serves as the Director of the Dundee Signal Transduction Therapy Unit. This is a unique collaboration between scientists at the University of Dundee and pharmaceutical companies, dedicated to accelerating the development of specific inhibitors and chemical probes that target the protein phosphorylation and ubiquitylation system for the treatment of disease, as well as for the study of cell signalling. Dario has published around 260 papers and has a h-index of 131. To peruse Dario's publications see https://scholar.google.co.uk/citations?user=9gPyVfsAAAAJ&hl=en
      • Tyson Aflalo, PhD
        Member of Professional Staff, Executive Director, T&C Brain-Machine Interface Center, Division of Biology and Biological Engineering, California Institute of Technology
        Biography
          For the last 15 years, Tyson Aflalo has studied how the brain controls movements with applications to neural prosthetics. Tyson received his PhD from Princeton University in 2012, studying how natural behaviors are coded in the primate brain. After his PhD, Tyson moved to the California Institute of Technology as a postdoctoral scholar in the lab of Richard Andersen, where he helped initiate the first human clinical trial to directly decode high-level goals from neural implants in tetraplegic individuals. Currently, Tyson is Executive Director of the T&C Chen Brain Machine Interface Center at the California Institute of Technology. In this role, he helps to oversee a clinical study comparing how populations of neurons encode intentions in posterior parietal and primary motor cortices.
        • Richard A. Andersen, PhD
          James G. Boswell Professor of Neuroscience,T&C Chen Brain-Machine Interface Center Leadership Chair Director, T&C Brain-Machine Interface Center Division of Biology and Biological Engineering
          Biography
            Richard Andersen obtained his Ph.D. from the University of California, San Francisco and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Johns Hopkins Medical School. He was a faculty member of the Salk Institute and MIT before coming to Caltech. Andersen discovered gain-fields, the method the brain uses to transform signals between spatial representations. He also discovered neural signals of intention, proving that they are not sensory in nature but rather reflect the planning of the subject. He has applied this discovery of intention coding to advance research in brain-machine interfaces, showing that paralyzed patients' intentions can be decoded from brain activity to control assistive devices such as computers and robotic limbs. Andersen is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Medicine, and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
