A Rewarding and Not-So-Smelly Journey: Discovery of the Physiological Importance of Hydrogen Sulfide

Speaker: Dr. Rui Wang;Professor of Biology Vice President (Research) Lakehead University, Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada

Time/Place: Thursday, Nov. 18th at 3:00 pm, 130 SMed

Abstract: Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) has been known for its toxicity over centuries. However, it has been only within the past decade that we have recognized the importance of this molecule to human physiology. Questions that are currently being addressed with respect to the metabolism of H2S include: How does life on Earth survive from massive distinctions? Is oxygen the sole energy source for life? How do hypertension and diabetes develop? Why is garlic beneficial to human health? Is erectile dysfunction curable? Understanding H2S metabolism may hold answers for all these questions.
