Studying Heart Disease from a Diverse Perspective
Dr. Judith Simcox, Assistant Professor of Biochemistry at University of Wisconsin-Madison; Associate Director of the WDRC Integrative Omics Core; co-mentor for the UW-Madison AISES Chapter will be joining us virtually to discuss her cardiovascular research from her perspective. Dr. Simcox is of Indigenous and Filipina descent and has worked throughout her career to support and create opportunities for underrepresented minorities in science. She has a bachelor's degree from Carroll College and earned her PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Utah. Her research focuses on lipids in the blood plasma that are increased in cardiovascular disease. Her lab works to understand how these lipids function as signaling molecules to communicate energy availability and inflammatory state between organs. Join us to hear about her research virtually, join us on November 22nd at 4:00 - 5:00pm to watch together in the CTL or join from your computer via the link below.
