IMSR Seminar Series – Research Seminar 

Antje Garten

Antje Garten

 “Does it matter which B6 mouse strain to use for your NAD supplementation experiments?”

 Antje studied biochemistry and worked in the research lab of the Children’s Hospital Leipzig, Germany. She is currently a Marie Curie fellow working in the Lavery group.  She is here because she shares their interest in NAD salvage metabolism and wants to assess how mitochondrial function changes when cellular redox homeostasis and nicotinamide nucleotide levels are altered

 “Differential effects of Vitamin D2 and D3 on the progression of colitis in mouse”

Dean attained his BSc in Applied and Human Biology from the University of Aston in 2007. He subsequently undertook a PhD at the University of Birmingham, studying sarcolemmal protein caveolin and its role in the pathogenesis of a mouse model of Duchenne muscular dystrophy; graduating in 2012. Dean began working in the IMSR with Professor Gareth Lavery’s research group, where he studied non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in 11β-HSD1 knockout mice. For the last two and a half years he has been a part of Professor Martin Hewison’s vitamin D research group, where the focus of his work has been the effects of vitamin D on inflammation.
