Dr. Palmer gave a talk at IROC section (International Rat Omics Consortium). The talk was focused on accomplishments of the NIDA center for GWAS in outbred rats (P50DA037844, “Integrated GWAS of complex behavioral and gene expression traits in outbred rats”) over the past four and a half years. Dr. Palmer also presented a poster highlighting goals and results of the P50 Center.
Dr. Sanchez-Roige gave a talk titled “Alcohol consumption vs. misuse: evidence for distinct genetic architecture”.
The Palmer lab recently attended the Society for Neuroscience meeting in San Diego on November 3-7th.
Apurva Chitre presented a poster titled, “Genetic analysis of multiple measures of locomotor activity in 2,325 outbred Heterogeneous Stock rats.”
Dr. Abraham Palmer presented at the Cell Mapping Symposium held at Roth Auditorium at Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine. His talk was titled “Ratification of network research.”
Dr. Sandra Sanchez-Roige presented a poster at the fourth annual Chancellor’s Research Excellence Scholarships Symposium held at UCSD. The title of her poster was “Intersection of Impulsive Personality Traits and Drug Experimentation: A Genome-Wide Association Approach.”
Three members of the Palmer lab presented posters at the annual American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) meeting in San Diego.
Dr. Sandra Sanchez-Roige presented a poster titled “Intersection of Impulsive Personality Traits and Drug Experimentation: A Genome-Wide Association Approach.” Dr. Amelie Baud presented a poster titled “Architecture of social genetic effects in laboratory mice.” Apurva Chitre presented a poster titled “Genome wide association study of body weight, body mass index, adiposity, and fasting glucose in 3,173 outbred rats.”
Dr. Abraham Palmer recently gave a talk at the at the 6th Annual Molecular Psychiatry Meeting in Kauai, Hawaii. His talk was titled, “Using GWAS, eQTL and PrediXcan (aka TWAS) to understand complex behavioral traits in mice and rats.”
Palmer Lab undergraduate student, Amy Lee, gave a talk at the UC San Diego Summer Research Conference. Her talk was titled “The role of Glo1 enzyme activity on the severity of alcohol withdrawal in mice.” She completed research for this presentation after being awarded the Julia Brown Research Scholarship for Health and Medical Professions.
Great job, Amy!
