In 1999, TTUHSC leadership identified aging as a strategic priority for the 21st century. Formerly known as the Institute for Healthy Aging, the Garrison Institute on Aging honors Mildred and Shirley L. Garrison's commitment and leadership to advancing aging and Alzheimer's disease research, education, and service for West Texans...Learn More>>

  

 

  Special Issue 'Neurotransmitters and Alzheimer’s Disease' in Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease

 P. Hemachandra Reddy, Ph.D., will be bringing a special issue entitled ‘Neurotransmitters and Alzheimer’s Disease’ as a guest editor in Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. The purpose of this special issue is to assess the recent developments in neurotransmitters research in order to improve our basic understanding of 1) neurotransmitters’ role in normal and Alzheimer’s disease states, 2) effect of oxidative insults and aging in causing abnormalities in neurotransmitters and synaptic damage, 3) amyloid beta and phosphorylated tau accumulations at synapses in causing abnormalities in neurotransmitters and synaptic damage, 4) development of therapeutic drugs that may enhance synaptic activity, neuronal function in AD neurons and 5) current status of pre-clinical and clinical trials using therapeutic drugs related to neurotransmitters in Alzheimer’s disease. This special issue will provide timely resources for students, clinical/basic science researchers, and Alzheimer’s disease patients and their families. The dates of submission will be open now until August 2016. If interested to submit an article for this special issue – please contact P. Hemachandra Reddy, Ph.D., – Hemachandra.reddy@ttuhsc.edu 

 

Special Issue entitled ‘Oxidative Stress and Mitochondrial Quality in Diabetes/Obesity and Critical Illness Spectrum of Diseases’ in Biochimica et Biophysica Acta Molecular Basis of Disease'

 

 Dr. P. Hemachandra Reddy is bringing a special issue entitled ‘Oxidative Stress and Mitochondrial Quality in Diabetes/Obesity and Critical Illness Spectrum of Diseases’ as a guest editor for Biochimica et Biophysica Acta Molecular Basis of Disease. The purpose of this special issue is to assess the recent developments in oxidative stress and mitochondrial quality in diabetes/obesity and critical illness spectrum of diseases in order to improve our basic understanding of 1) oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction in normal and disease states, 2) effect of oxidative insults and aging in causing abnormal mitochondrial dynamics and cell damage, 3) development of therapeutic drugs that may reduce oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction and 4) current status of pre-clinical and clinical trials using therapeutic drugs and healthy diets and diet supplements diabetes/obesity and critical illness spectrum of diseases. I strongly believe that this special issue will provide timely resources for students, clinical/basic science researchers, and diabetes/obesity and critical illness spectrum of diseases research. With this information, I formally invite you to submit an article - either original research or review to my special issue as soon as possible. The dates of submission will be open now until May 2016. All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed and the review process will be fair and fast, and accepted manuscripts will appear in the pubmed as quickly as possible. The manuscript submission guidelines can be found in Biochimica et Biophysica Acta Molecular Basis of Disease - http://www.journals.elsevier.com/bba-molecular-basis-of-disease  If you need any additional information about this special issue, please contact me at Hemachandra.reddy@ttuhsc.edu
