Curtis Henry, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at Emory University School of Medicine; Member, Cancer Immunology Research Program at Winship Cancer Institute.
Dr. Henry's research seeks to determine how chronic inflammation shapes hematopoiesis, immunity, and leukemogenesis. Results from these studies will be applied to improving therapeutic responses in at risk populations including children who are overweight or obese and aged populations.

On Friday, February 10, 2023, we are excited to welcome Prof. Rusty Lansford from USC as he presents, "Intravital Imaging Across Kingdoms."
ABOUT THE SEMINAR
Intravital Imaging Across Kingdoms
Since 2011, I have worked at the University of Southern California (USC) & Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) using a combination of experimental, computational, and theoretical approaches to quantitatively understand decision-making in single cells and tissues, focusing on questions in vascular, neural, and germ cell development. We have a quiver of new molecular tools that permit molecular perturbation to be induced in vivo with extreme spatiotemporal accuracy and generated new multispectral fluorescent sensors to assay changes in cell behaviors resulting from the molecular disruptions. The quail model system uncouples early embryogenesis from maternal influences, providing a simpler system to assay the complex and multifactorial effects of how germ cells act in their native environment during the equivalent of their first-trimester development. Recently we have been developing new spectral technologies to investigate marine-based cross-kingdom mutualistic interactions to advance understanding how diverse organisms adapt to their changing environment.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Russell D. “Rusty” Lansford, Ph.D., Associate Professor, University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine & Investigator at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles
Rusty Lansford earned an A.B. in Immunology at UC Berkeley and worked with Dr. Marian Koshland on the regulation of the J chain protein transcriptional regulation. He obtained a Ph.D. in Molecular Immunology at Columbia University working with Dr. Fred Alt. Lansford worked as a postdoctoral researcher in Developmental Biology and Optics at Caltech with Dr. Scott Fraser working on neural crest cells migration and patterning and he co-developed multispectral imaging hardware and software now widely used in microscopy. As an independent investigator at Caltech, he developed transgenic quail as a model system to dynamically investigate embryogenesis.
ABOUT THE 2021-2022 BME SEMINAR SERIES
The Department of Biomedical Engineering at Columbia University is proud to host an annual weekly seminar series on the latest developments and research in Biomedical Engineering. The weekly series takes place on Friday mornings at 11:00AM Eastern and includes a variety of renowned academics from top universities to talk about their specific research and experience. The January 21 seminar is a virtual event.
