Agnes W.H. Tan Science Symposium (Previous Event)

Friday, September 15, 2023

9:00 -2:30pm
Viterbo University - Fine Arts Center
900 Viterbo Drive, La Crosse, WI

How serious are concussions? This symposium will focus on the biochemistry underlying traumatic brain injuries, such as those caused by sports accidents or war trauma. Experts in the fields of neuroscience, biochemistry, and molecular biology will present the latest research on the molecular mechanisms of traumatic brain injuries and their long-term effects on the brain. Topics of discussion will include the biochemical pathways involved in cell death, the role of inflammation and oxidative stress in brain damage, and how genetic and environmental factors influence the severity of such injuries. The symposium will also explore possible strategies to repair the damage caused by traumatic brain injuries. Attendees will gain a better understanding of the biochemical pathways involved in traumatic brain injuries and how to develop more effective treatments for these often-debilitating conditions.
