KU Natural History Museum, A Science on Tap Event- From Prometheus to the Naked Mole Rat


Tuesday, October 23, 2018 - 19:30


Bier Station, 120 E Gregory Blvd, Kansas City, MO

Description: From Prometheus to the Naked Mole Rat: Toward a better understanding of hyaluronan biology in response to injury and aging A Kansas City Science on Tap Event with Michele Pritchard Tuesday, October 23 7:30 pm Bier Station, 120 East Gregory Blvd, Kansas City, MO Our fascination with Prometheus and pop-culture icons such as Wolverine indicates that our society has a persistent and unmistakable interest in perfect wound repair, or regeneration. Much scientific effort is devoted to trying to crack the “regeneration code” to prevent imperfect wound repair, which leads to scar formation. Join Dr. Michele Pritchard at this Science on Tap to discuss her effort to leverage secrets from the naked mole rat to improve tissue repair after toxic liver injury and to delay aging in the human ovary.
