  • Special Neuroscience Presentation
    Nov 3 2017 - 8:00am

    John N. Galgiani, MD

    Director, Valley Fever Center for Excellence
    Professor, BIO5 Institute
    Professor, Department of Medicine, Division of Infectious Diseases
    The University of Arizona College of Medicine - Tucson

     

    "CNS complications of Coccidioidomycosis and their management"


    Dr. Galgiani received his BA from Stanford University and his MD from Northwestern Medical School.  He then completed Internal Medicine training in Seattle, San Jose, and San Francisco. He also was a Fellow in Infectious Diseases at Stanford University.  In 1978, Dr. Galgiani joined the medical faculty of the University of Arizona in Tucson. He is a member of numerous professional societies including the Infectious Diseases Society of America, American College of Physicians, and the American Society for Microbiology. He has written or co-authored over 250 peer-reviewed and scientific publications.

    Dr. Galgiani has focused his career on Arizona’s special problems with coccidioidomycosis (Valley Fever).  His work has included estimating the impact of Valley Fever on the general population and on special groups such as organ transplant recipients and patients with AIDS.  For 19 years, as part of the NIH-sponsored Mycoses Study Group, Dr. Galgiani was the project director of a coccidioidomycosis clinical trials group.  Through collaboration, this group has evaluated new therapies for Valley Fever more rapidly and with greater clarity than might otherwise have been possible by investigators working in isolation.  For the past two decades, Dr. Galgiani has been involved with efforts to prevent Valley Fever through vaccination.  He was a Principle Investigator in consortium involving five universities to produce a vaccine candidate based upon recombinant antigens. More recently, he is leading a UA group to develop a live, avirulent vaccine for dogs and humans.  Since 2005, Dr. Galgiani has developed a working group at the University of Arizona to develop a new antifungal drug, nikkomycin Z, as a possible cure for Valley Fever.  As a result of these efforts, clinical trials with nikkomycin Z were resumed in 2007.

    In 1996, the Arizona Board of Regents accepted Dr. Galgiani’s proposal to establish the Valley Fever Center for Excellence for the Arizona universities.  Based at the University of Arizona, the Center disseminates information about Valley Fever, helps patients with the severest complications of this disease, and encourages research into the biology and diseases of its etiologic agent.  Since the University Arizona is a research institution with two medical schools situated directly within the endemic region for Valley Fever, it is quite appropriate that the UA lead in solving this problem.  As Director of the Center, Dr. Galgiani is working for its full implementation as a means of ensuring an institutional commitment to accomplish this goal.

    "The Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience of Autobiographical Memory and Aging"


    Presentation Learning Objectives:

    1.  Understand why and how cognitive neuroscientists study autobiographical memory (i.e., memory for real life events) in older adults.
    2.  Become familiar with current scientific knowledge of how autobiographical memory changes in individuals with mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s dementia, as well as why it might be an early warning sign of one’s risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
    3.  Gain insight into the cognitive and neural mechanisms that contribute to normal and abnormal age-related changes in autobiographical memory.
