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.

Title: Senior Application Scientist, Beckman Coulter
Lecture Title: "Cytometry Skills Workshop II”

The Cytometry Facility is proud to announce the Cytoflex LX is on the way! For our last virtual seminar, we will be re-introducing the technology. In brief, the CytoFLEX LX Flow Cytometer is an expansion of the CytoFLEX Platform. This flagship model expands research possibilities with six lasers and 21 color parameters. Six spatially separated lasers allow panels to be spread across the spectrum reducing cross talk and spectral overlap. The fully activated instrument includes three fluorescent channels from the 355 nm (UV) laser, five from the 405 nm (Violet) laser, three from the 488 nm (Blue) laser, five from the 561 nm (Yellow Green) laser, three from the 638 nm (Red) laser, and two from the 808 nm (Infrared) laser. The available 96-well plate sample loader allows for high-throughput applications and fits inside the instrument preserving the compact footprint. Please join us to learn more about this new instrument!
