Recommendation to Upstate from Le Moyne College’s HPAC advisory board.
This summer I lived in Syracuse and worked full time in Dr. Huiayu Hu’s lab at Upstate Medical University researching a genetic blinding disease, retinitis pigmentosa. Retinitis Pigmentosa causes progressive degeneration of photoreceptors resulting in total vision loss, this disease affects 1 in 3000 to 7000 people worldwide. This is a disease that results in degradation of photoreceptors causing progressive vision loss. I researched the importance of two proteins, Protein O-mannosyltransferase 2 (POMT2) and α-dystroglycan (DAG), in the development of retinitis pigmentosa. These proteins can lead to the mislocalization of the Eyes shut homolog (EYS) protein, causing photoreceptor degeneration. I set up breeding tanks, ran PCRs and did double immunofluorescence staining on slides that I sectioned. I created scientific figures, wrote an article and presented my findings. Along with my main project I also helped assist and other projects in the lab as well, giving me a lot of new experience with equipment I wouldn’t have been able to work with at Le Moyne.
Gait Analysis in Pediatric Patients with Neuromuscular Disorder
Her work with preceptor Dr. Christopher Neville, PT, Ph.D. focused on pediatric gait analysis in the motion analysis laboratory at the Institute for Human Performance. Using the motion analysis system to calculate kinematics, a visual was provided to see the position and orientation of the lower extremities and how different angles formed by the joints correlate with each stride cycle and their specific velocities. A kinematic analysis was created to inform clinical care and allow them to address the primary causes and potential treatments of gait deviations in the patient.
