Rewiring the Neuroinflammatory Response

In 2005, Dr. Capadona completed his Ph.D. thesis studying the effects of surface properties of biomedical implants on the control of cellular response and function at Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Capadona immediately began his career with the Department of Veterans Affairs as a Research Health Scientist. At this point, Dr. Capadona became interested in the neuro- degenerative response to implanted biomedical devices. Since joining the VA, Dr. Capadona has received an Associate Investigator Award, a Career Development Award II, and is currently the PI or Co-PI of three Rehabilitation R&D Merit Reviews (VA equivalent to an R01). In August 2010, Dr. Capadona began a tenure track appointment in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at

Case Western Reserve University. Dr. Capadona has co-authored 3 patents, 5 book chapters, over 100 scientific abstracts and over 65 peer reviewed scientific manuscripts

Food waste biorefinery platform to develop new products with biomedical applications

Dr. Aliakbarian completed her PhD degree in Chemical, Process and Material Engineering in the School of Innovative Sciences and Technologies at the University of Genoa (Italy) in 2009. Prior joining MSU, she has held positions at the University of Genoa, Harvard-MIT Health Sciences & Technology, and the University of Sydney. She has received different prestigious awards and fellowships including MSU Academy for Global Engagement Fellowship, Italian Scientific Qualification Award, European Social Fund in Liguria Region for Postdoctoral Research Award, and Australian Endeavour Research Award. The goal of her research is to improve the sustainability of agro-food systems by valorizing their by-products through the integration of green techniques to formulate novel products with health benefits. Dr. Aliakbarian leads a multidisciplinary team that focuses on the use of smart packaging solutions to enhance food and pharmaceutical supply chain security and sustainability.

REMODELING IN THE URINARY BLADDER WALL IN TYPE 2 DIABETES

Diabetic cystopathy is a term used to describe the effect that the loss of neurological connection with the brain has on the urinary bladder in diabetic patients. Specifically, the decreased neurological connection results in a diminished ability of a diabetic patient’s urinary bladder to communicate a sense of “fullness”. This loss of sensation leads to an increase in urine volume stored in the bladder, which can trigger microstructural remodeling of the wall. As a result, the bladder wall of patients affected by this condition show increased compliance and thinned walls. This macroscopic mechanical remodeling is paired with a microstructural remodeling of the extracellular matrix within the wall.

NOTCH SIGNALING FUNCTION IN ANGIOGENESIS

The Kitajewski lab studies angiogenesis during cardiovascular development, in physiological settings, and in the tumor microenvironment. The focus of research is on endothelial cell fate determination regulated by Notch signaling, GPCR signaling mediated by Chloride Intracellular Channels (CLIC), and matrix remodeling pathways regulated by anthrax toxin receptors (ANTXR). This work has uncovered mechanisms of embryonic, ovarian, retinal and tumor angiogenesis and contributed to our understanding of fertility, vascular malformations, retinopathies, tumor angiogenesis and metastasis. The lab works actively to develop therapeutics for oncology use by targeting tumor angiogenesis, and his group developed Notch inhibitors, called “Notch decoys” that block tumor growth by reducing tumor vessel function.
