“Sugar and Fat Appetite: Role of Nutrient Sensors in Mouth and Gut ”Animal SciencesSpeaker: Anthony Scalafani, PhD
Food appetite and preference are greatly influenced by taste stimuli. Sugar taste is mediated by sweet receptors and fat taste receptors also exist. Sugar and fat are also "tasted" in the gut where nutrient sensors stimulate eating and flavor preferences through an "appetition" process.

“IGF-1R is a suppressor of metastasis in Wnt1 driven mammary tumorigenesis”Animal SciencesSpeaker: Alison Obr, PhD
Signaling through the IGF-1R is complex in breast cancers. We have generated a mouse line containing both MMTV-Wnt1 and MMTV-dnIGF-1R transgenes that leads to increased metastasis through increased cellular stress, an altered EMT phenotype, and an influx of tumor evasive immune cells.

“Assessing Neonatal Brain and Cognitive Development in the Preclinical Piglet Model “Animal SciencesSpeaker: Ryan N. Dilger, PhD
The pig has emerged as a preclinical model for studying the effects of early-life nutrition on cognitive function. This seminar will discuss how neuroimaging and behavioral assessments in the pig can be used to investigate how nutrition affects neurodevelopmental patterns.
