The current class of Tsinghua University visiting research scholars at the University of Pittsburgh will present their work during virtual poster sessions from 1–2 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, April 28 and 29 via Zoom. For Tsinghua scholars, participation in such poster sessions provides an important opportunity to practice describing their scientific research in a professional setting before mentors, fellow students, and other trainees and faculty.

 

In a collaboration that began in 2011, medical students from Tsinghua University in Beijing, China, come to the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine for a two-year biomedical research training program. Periodic poster sessions typically take place yearly in Pittsburgh and Beijing to build relationships and educate each site about the other’s work.

 

A downloadable copy of the poster abstracts can be found here.

Work-in-Progress Conference & Seminar Series

Investigating the immune microenvironment of primary estrogen receptor positive (ER+) breast cancer”

Sayali Onkar

PhD candidate, Vignali and Oesterreich Labs, Department of Immunology (PMI),

University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine

Objective: 

  1.  Immunotherapy has revolutionized outcomes in several different tumor types but is relatively unsuccessful in treating ER+ breast cancer. Our project aims to dissect the immune microenvironment through multipronged approaches for assessing the type and function of infiltrating immune cell subsets in treatment-naive tumor tissue and peripheral blood from patients with ER+ invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) and invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC), the two major histological subtypes of ER+ breast cancer. Through comprehensive global analysis of immune cells and their potential interactions, we identified macrophages and CD8 T cells as important subsets that can be potentially targeted in ER+ breast cancer to improve patient outcomes.

 

“Impact of SARS-CoV-2 infection in spermatogonial stem cells”

Ana Martinez Marchal, PhD.

Postdoctoral Associate. Miguel Brieño-Enriquez Lab

Magee-Womens Research Institute

Objective: 

  1.  The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), led to more than 126,265,724 million infected individuals and over 2,769,853 global deaths by the end of March 2021. The novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 is an enveloped, positive-sense, single-stranded RNA betacoronavirus of the family Coronaviridae. The main target of these virus is the lungs, but new reports about COVID-19 indicate its effects on other organs, including kidney, brain and testis. SARS-CoV-2 uses the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptor and the transmembrane protease serine 2 (TMPRSS2) to invade human cells. Based on ACE2 and TMPRSS2 expression, the testis has been classified as being at high risk of infection by SARS-CoV-2. Indeed, patients with COVID-19 suffer from testicular discomfort, which can be associated with viral orchitis. Similarly, some studies have reported reduced testosterone levels in the serum from COVID-19 patients. These data suggest that COVID-19 could affect male reproductive function, in fact the presence of SARS-CoV-2 has been detected in the testis of some deceased patients of COVID-19 as well as in some semen samples of patients in the acute and recovery phase of COVID-19. Our preliminary analysis of the testis of 5 patients deceased due to COVID-19 and their respective controls showed increased germ cell apoptosis, micro thrombosis, and infiltration of lymphocyte CD3+. Strikingly, we observed that almost all the apoptotic cells were spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs). Non-apoptotic SSCs also displayed signs of DNA damage and oxidative stress. Using single nuclei RNA-seq, RNAscope, and immunohistochemistry, we will interrogate the effects of COVID-19 on human testis from the macroscopic presentation to the single cell, providing an important basis to understand the SSC alterations that may hamper fertility in COVID-19 survivors.
