World Health Week - Dr. Carolyn Audet, “Creating a system of collaboration between traditional practitioners and clinicians to improve health outcomes in rural Mozambique”
Dr. Audet is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Policy, the Institute for Global Health and the Center for Medicine, Health and Society at Vanderbilt University. She received her Ph.D. at Vanderbilt, at which time she began working in Uganda and Kenya overseeing several service learning programs with a focus on HIV, health care delivery, and poverty. In 2008 she joined the Institute for Global Health at Vanderbilt University as a Post-Doctoral Fellow and began research on barriers to HIV testing and treatment uptake in rural Mozambique. In 2013, she completed her M.Sc. in Epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. She has received a career development award from Vanderbilt University to increase traditional healer referrals of HIV-infected patients (2012-2015) and from the National Institutes of Health to assess feasibility of engaging traditional healers as HIV treatment partners (2015-2019). Her research has led to changes in national health policy in Mozambique. Undergraduates, graduate students, medical students, faculty, and students from other schools are all welcome. This is the third speaker event in World Health Week, sponsored by the VUSM Global Health Organization. Lunch provided on a first come, first served basis.

Topic: Standard Delivery -- Lessons Learned Over a Decade of Ignoring, Facilitating and Then Adopting Standards While Building Research Informatics Tools
Abstract: This talk will explore the practical use (and non-use) of data standards in developing and disseminating informatics-based platforms supporting common research domains. The talk will not cover an exhaustive list of all data standards, but will rather serve as a targeted discussion related to practical ‘why’ and ‘how’ considerations for implementing standards when building informatics tools.
The Vanderbilt Institute of Chemical Biology presents Dr. Min Chen, University of Massachusetts: "Outer Membrane Protein G and Its Application in Biotechnology"
Key Lecture Points:
· The dynamic movement of outer membrane protein G (OmpG) nanopore can be harnessed to distinguish protein homologues and isoforms in complex mixture.
· Electrostatic interaction between OmpG loops and the analyte proteins contributes to the high-selectivity of OmpG nanopore sensor.
· Gating of OmpG is controlled by the repulsion force between the loops.
· OmpG sensor array improves the detection selectivity.
