Carolina Systems Genetics Seminar- Thursday, February 3 (Mark Heise) Feb 03, 2011 from 03:00 PM to 04:00 PM Room 0001, Hooker Research Building,
Our research group is working with the Complex Trait Consortium to investigate how viruses interact with genetically complex populations. As part of this collaboration, we are utilizing the Collaborative Cross (CC) as a model system for studying viral interactions with genetically diverse populations and as a tool for identifying/studyiung polymorphic host genes that regulate susceptibility to virus-induced disease. Initial studies with influenza virus (IAV) and SARS coronavirus demonstrated that pre-CC mouse lines exhibit a more diverse range of phenotypes than the parental lines used to generate the CC, including phenotypes that may result in the development of improved models for virus-induced respiratory disease. Our initial study also identified novel QTLs associated with resistance/susceptibility to IAV or SARS-induced disease, thereby validating the CC as a model system for investigating pathogen interactions with genetically complex populations.

Participatory Research Approaches Workshop Jan 28, 2011 from 10:00 AM to 02:00 PM Andrews Conference Center, Wake AHEC, Raleigh, NC,
The Participatory Research Approaches Workshops will provide an overview of research approaches that involve communities as research partners. This training will introduce community-based participatory research (CBPR), and cover the guiding principles, benefits, and challenges of this approach. This training will also feature a presentation by community experts on a specific participatory research project based in North Carolina. By the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to: •Describe the guiding principles of participatory approaches to research •Understand concepts related to Community-based Participatory Research (CBPR) •List the benefits and challenges of engaging in community-based research •Describe some of the tools and approaches to doing community-based research •Discuss a particular research project based in North Carolina
