Optogenetic analysis of neuromodulation
Abstract:Small molecule neurotransmitters operate at synapses by activating both ionotropic (ion channel) receptors (iGluRs) and metabotropic (G protein coupled) receptors (GPCRs). The signaling is complicated by multiple iGluR and GPCR types being co-localized in the same synaptic site, some of the receptors being localized to both presynaptic and postsynaptic sites, and even glial processes, which are capable of releasing transmitters that also activate neural receptors. We have developed optogenetic approaches for the control of native neuromodulatory GPCRs that can be used to selectively control one type of receptor at a specified cellular site.

From Obscurity to Ubiquity: How jellyfish and other organisms inspire bio-optical research
Abstract:The same properties that make bioluminescence and fluorescence essential for many marine organisms make them useful to researchers as laboratory tools. Since their discovery during basic research on light-producing jellyfish, GFP and photoproteins have been applied, adapted, and engineered for a variety of imaging applications. Despite now decades of research, there are still surprising properties that can be evoked from natural bio-optical proteins, and still many novel light-emitting chemistries to explore. This talk will review some of the history of the development natural imaging tools and present some of the recent and the yet-uncharacterized biochemical systems used in the ocean for generating living light.
