Jhun<br />Ph.D. Candidate<br />Advisor: Jim Z. Wang, Ph.D.<br />Dept. of Biopharmaceutical Sciences<br />Abstract: Pain is the most conspicuous aspect of sickle cell disease (SCD) that African tribes have been calling the disease onomatopoetic names describing its pain for at least hundreds of years. Pain in SCD is a heterogeneous and severe phenotype with considerable morbidity and health care utilization which requires characterization for precision therapy. Identifying candidate single nucleotide polymorphisms provide an avenue to elucidate mechanisms leading to pain variability and to reveal novel drug targets. In this study, a total of 411 SNPs in 116 genes were collected from literature review and SNP databases. Utilization rate due to pain crises and baseline pain were used for association studies. Baseline pain was recorded on a self-administered electronic pain assessment tool, PAINReportIt®. DNA was extracted from blood and buccal swab samples and genotyping was performed by PCR-RFLP or the MassARRAY iPLEX Platform. Single SNP analyses revealed several associations with pain phenotypes collected from our SCD cohort. For example, seven of the 16 genotyped SNPs within the beta2-adrenergic receptor gene associated with baseline pain. Significant linkage disequilibrium between the SNPs were observed and further analyses with haplotypes reaffirms its association with baseline pain. The glucocorticoid receptor revealed associations with utilization and a nonsynonymous SNP within the regulatory region of tyrosine hydroxylase also associates with baseline pain. Pain is a complex phenotype that may be a result of the contribution of many genes with small effects. A polygenic risk score is used for the first time in a pain candidate gene study to predict pain risk within our cohort. Pain risk was predicted for baseline pain but not for utilization. Furthermore, in congruence to our single SNP analysis, enrichment analyses on the computational platform, MetaCore, display significant association involving the beta2-adrenergic receptor. Observing the heritability of pain can elucidate mechanisms leading to SCD variability. In this study, several important genes and SNPs that are involved in SCD pain are revealed which will contribute to our understanding and eventual identification of novel drug targets to optimize pain therapy for SCD.<br /> tejada@uic.edu http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20160418T203758Z-11f0dd8-3e8-43d3049c-Oracle Mon, 18 Apr 2016 15:37:59 -0000 Polish Film Series http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20160119T175146Z-21c8e5f-3e8-ce52a32-Oracle <p>Date: <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=datesearch&amp;date=4-28-2016">April 28, 2016</a> at 3:15 pm | <a href="https://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;&amp;dispatch=invite&amp;id=20160119T175146Z-21c8e5f-3e8-ce52a32-Oracle">Add event to my UICal</a> <br />Category: <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?dispatch=search&amp;search=%22Cultural+Events+%22">Cultural Events </a> </p> lclc@uic.edu http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20160119T175146Z-21c8e5f-3e8-ce52a32-Oracle Tue, 19 Jan 2016 11:51:46 -0000 Aspiring Entrepreneurs: Advertising your business on Google http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20160411T201413Z-11b1f5b-3e8-198ae04-Oracle <p>Date: <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=datesearch&amp;date=5-3-2016">May 3, 2016</a> at 12:00 pm | <a href="https://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;&amp;dispatch=invite&amp;id=20160411T201413Z-11b1f5b-3e8-198ae04-Oracle">Add event to my UICal</a> <br />Category: <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?dispatch=search&amp;search=%22Continuing+and+Professional+Education%22">Continuing and Professional Education</a>, <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?dispatch=search&amp;search=%22Conferences+and+Workshops+%22">Conferences and Workshops </a> </p> Come Learn and Do!

Based on the framework, the dissertation examines the effect of a macro level governing structure on public sector employment using two different methods. An econometric model is used to examine the individual effect of four characteristics of a macro level governing structure on local public employment levels by combining other socioeconomic data of 3,031 counties from 1992 to 2012. These four characteristics are spatial fragmentation, interjurisdictional completion, jurisdictional overlap and fiscal decentralization. To supplement the results of the statistical analysis, a qualitative comparative analysis compares different combinations of the four characteristics of a macro level governing structure in relation to public employment at the state level, then utilizes Boolean algebra to investigate the causal conditions.<br />Regression analysis finds that an increased level of fiscal decentralization is significantly associated with larger labor input in the production of public services. Additionally, spatial fragmentation reduces the levels of public sector employment, whereas interjurisdictional competition and jurisdictional overlap lead to the growth of local public sector employment levels. The findings have challenged conventional theories in fiscal federalism. Moreover, the qualitative comparative analysis presents different types of interactions of macro level governing structure characteristics in relation to high and low levels of state government employment. The results of the qualitative analysis reveal causality asymmetry and highlight how different interactions of characteristics of a macro-level governing structure affect different levels of state government employment.<br /> <br /> shar@uic.edu http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20160426T162318Z-3107c22-3e8-7c8b3caf-Oracle Tue, 26 Apr 2016 11:23:59 -0000
