Dr. Lucy Hinder gave a symposium talk on “Insight into the why – the importance of bioenergetic deficits” and presented a poster “Amelioration of peripheral neuropathy in mouse models of diabetes by dietary reversal.” She also moderated “Latest breakthroughs in clinical & basic science of diabetic neuropathy.”
Four other members of the PNR&D presented posters: Dr. Amy Rumora (Monosaturated fatty acids prevent saturated fatty acid-induced impairment of mitochondrial trafficking in dorsal root ganglion sensory neurons), Dr. Stephanie Eid (NOX, NOX, Are you here? The emerging role of NOX5 in diabetic neuropathy), Dr. Sarah Elzinga (Toll like receptors 2/4 and diabetic peripheral neuropathy) and Gio LoGrasso (Saturated fatty acids impair organellar trafficking in dorsal root ganglion (DRG) sensory neurons).
