From Cancer Biologist to Rare Disease Mom – Digging Into the Data to Better Understand SCN8A with Madeleine Oudin PhD – Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Tufts

ONCE UPON A GENE - EPISODE 172 From Cancer Biologist to Rare Disease Mom - Digging Into the Data to Better Understand SCN8A with Madeleine Oudin PhD - Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Tufts Madeleine Oudin is a scientist and Tiampo Family Assistant Professor at Tufts University. Her daughter Margo has two de novo mutations in the SCN8A gene, which causes epilepsy. She's navigating life as a rare, working mom and sharing her knowledge in an understandable and accessible way for other rare parents.  EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS Can you tell us about the epilepsy conference you just attended? The SCN8 community organizes the conference for clinicians, researchers and families every year at the American Epilepsy Society meeting. There were over 35 families in attendance who have children with SCN8A and it was amazing to meet everyone in real life. What advice do you have for parents who aren't sure about attending a conference? Meeting other people has made a big difference for me and I encourage others to find their people. Going to gatherings can lead to finding resources and there's value in connecting to others and learning more about a disease. Community is everything. As a scientist and now a rare parent, how do you look through the microscope differently? The impact of genetic testing surprised me in how vital it is when it comes to rare genetic diseases. When Margo had her first seizure and had genetic testing, the results helped to connect us to community. Genetic testing is vital for families to connect them to resources. What work have you done in the SCN8A community to help other families understand the disease and advance the treatment progress? Science communication is something I'm passionate about. Since becoming a rare mom, I started an Instagram account where I explain the science of the diagnosis and break it down so the information is accessible to everyone. I recently did a webinar breaking down the different treatment strategies for SCN8A.  Can you talk about Margo's acceptance to n-Lorem? We applied with our neurologist and were accepted into the foundation to develop custom Antisense oligonucleotide (ASO) treatments. In parallel, we're doing treatments in my lab on a mouse and mouse cells, testing out different ASOs to see if we can gain any additional insights.

Innovations in Breast Cancer: Take Charge of Your Breast Health | Dr. Anna Daily & Dr. Brigitte Piniewski

At the current rate, about 1 in 8 American women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women, but early detection could prevent this growing statistic. In this episode, Dr. Anna Daily and Dr. Brigitte Piniewski join to discuss important movements in breast health, breast cancer, and the future of scientific and crowd-based medical research. Anna Daily and Dr. Piniewski explain the new FemTech platform, Auria: a personalized, innovative at-home breast health assessment. Dr. Anna Daily, PhD, is the Chief Scientific Officer at Namida Lab and the inventor of Auria, the first at-home breast health risk assessment technology that uses tears as a diagnostic biofluid.

Delivering stroke care on the roads and in the sky across Australia

Episode 43: Interview with Professor Stephen Davis & Geoffrey Donnan of the Australian Stroke Alliance. The Australian Stroke Alliance is comprised of more than 30 organisations working together to transform stroke care across Australia and improve the lives of those affected by stroke. They are developing novel mobile imaging, digital health and emergency transport technologies to radically transform stroke outcomes and deliver commercial benefits for all Australians. Rather than transporting patients to hospital, they drive or fly Australian-designed life-saving brain scanning equipment to a patient during the Golden Hour for Stroke, transforming their chances of survival and recovery. For Australians living in rural, remote and Indigenous communities, access to stroke treatment during the Golden Hour for Stroke is limited or non-existent – creating inequity and a major gap in health outcomes. The Australian Stroke Alliance is about equity, world-first innovation and bringing time-critical stroke treatment direct to the patient. About our guests: PROFESSOR GEOFFREY DONNAN AO Geoffrey is a professor of Neurology at The University of Melbourne and former Director of The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health. He is the co-lead of the Australian Stroke Alliance and the Frontiers MRFF grant. His research interest is clinical stroke management. He was co-founder, with Professor Stephen Davis, of the Australian Stroke Trials Network. He is the co-chair of the EXTEND group of trials, including the recently published EXTEND IA trial of thrombectomy in acute ischaemic stroke. He was Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Stroke and is Past President of the World Stroke Organization. PROFESSOR STEPHEN DAVIS AO Stephen is a professor of Translational Neuroscience at the University of Melbourne, Director of the Melbourne Brain Centre at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and a Past-President of the World Stroke Organization. He co-chairs the Melbourne Mobile Stroke Unit program. His research is focussed on acute therapy for both ischemic stroke and intracerebral haemorrhage, particularly the use of advanced imaging in selection of therapy. He is the co-lead of the Australian Stroke Alliance and the Frontiers MRFF grant. Show Credits: Music intro credit to Jake Dansereau, connect at JAKEEZo on Soundcloud @user-257386777.

Never Give Up – Two Decades of Struggles From Diagnosing Their Children to Starting a Clinical Trial For Aspartylglucosaminuria with Rare Mom Julia Taravella

ONCE UPON A GENE - EPISODE 171 Never Give Up - Two Decades of Struggles From Diagnosing Their Children to Starting a Clinical Trial For Aspartylglucosaminuria with Rare Mom Julia Taravella Julia Taravella is a mom to two adult children, Alexander and Daniel, and she's the founder of the Rare Trait Hope Fund. Julia's sons didn't have a diagnosis for 16 years until she went above and beyond to seek out answers and use the genetic data available to her to reveal a diagnosis of Aspartylglucosaminuria (AGU), a rare, fatal, lysosomal storage disorder.  EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS Can you tell us about your sons and their diagnosis journey? Alexander and Daniel are 22 and 27. In kindergarten and first grade, Daniel was doing below average. Daniel was 5 years old when his brother Alexander was born. Alexander started early intervention, but started to have the same delays as Daniel. Having two children presenting the same developmental delays, I suspected it was genetic, but it was difficult to get genetic testing at that time. I sought consultations with physicians and specialists, the boys underwent testing, and all results revealed they were within the expected range. A direct-to-consumer genetic test came out on the market and I bought two of them for my husband and I, figuring there may be something uncovered through our DNA. We went on to test both kids and close relatives too and the results were inconclusive. I dug deeper by downloading all of the data from the testing website and went back to doctors with it, but I wasn't taken seriously. I found a person in bioinformatics who agreed to analyze and clean up the data. When the data was returned, I took genetics classes for 6 months, wrote a program to analyze the data and determined my sons had AGU. The diagnosis was confirmed by doctors through further blood and urine testing. What did you do after getting a diagnosis?  I attended a conference and connected with new families with other glycoprotein lysosomal diseases and it helped to meet them. I had hope that something could be done and I frantically started writing emails to anyone I could find in the published AGU literature. I wrote about 200 emails and through those emails I connected with a Finnish doctor who invited me to go to Finland to meet with her. We stopped in Germany on the way and connected with a biochemist to discuss potential treatment options.  What should everyone watch out for when developing gene therapy programs? It's important to have a signed sponsorship agreement about how research and funding is handled without knowing what you'll get in return. Take small steps and don't invest everything you've raised at once to test if you'll receive the results you want within the time frame you've set. Step-by-step developments will help develop a rapport with your researcher to develop trust and gain understanding about where funding goes. Also be sure to understand who is working on what and maintain open lines of communication with everyone.
