Director of the Prostate Cancer Center of Excellence
Medical College of Wisconsin

About

Dr. Nevalainen is an internationally recognized leader in the field of cytokine and steroid hormone signaling in prostate cancer. The focus of her laboratory is on translational prostate cancer research to develop and improve diagnostics and therapy for prostate cancer. Dr. Nevalainen holds the title of Eminent Scholar at MCW. She is also Director of Prostate Cancer Center of Excellence at MCW Cancer Center, which is a multi-disciplinary hub for prostate cancer research with an international collaborative network. Dr. Nevalainen serves as Assistant Dean for Research at MCW, and Associate Director of Education for the MCW Cancer Center. Her primary appointment is in the Department of Pathology, and a secondary appointment in the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology. Dr. Nevalainen has extensive experience in collaborative research, mentoring and leadership from her previous roles at Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Thomas Jefferson University as Associate Director of Education and Vice Chair of Education in the Department of Cancer Biology.

Dr. Nevalainen’s research accomplishments include development of an androgen-dependent human PC cell line which mimics the course of human disease when grown as xenograft tumors in nude mice. Specifically, the tumors response to androgen deprivation by regression but regrow eventually back as castrate-resistant tumors.

Dr. Nevalainen is further recognized in her field for early development of a long-term 3D tumor explant culture system for normal and malignant prostate tissue for efficacy testing of experimental biologics and small-molecules ex vivo in clinical PCs from patients and as an experimental model system for identification of growth factor and drug modulated signaling proteins in prostate tissue.

Current work focuses on Jak-Stat signaling in anti-androgen resistance of prostate cancer, Stat5 regulation of DNA repair and optimization of the lead compound Stat5 inhibitor.

Dr. McIntosh’s Research

Maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality caused by preeclampsia is a significant global health burden with approximately 10 million pregnancies impacted resulting in nearly half a million fetal or neonatal lives lost each year. A novel relationship may exist between mitochondrial damage and endothelial dysfunction and subsequent development of preeclampsia.

Our overall goal is to investigate the mechanism whereby placental hypoxia is responsible for release of ROS and inflammation secondary to mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and if there is altered FMD as a result of heightened mtDNA in vessels from placentas in those with preeclampsia.

2019 Eleanor Delfs Lecture @ MCW HRC Auditorium
May 29 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

Featured Speaker: Nicholas Illsley, DPhil – “Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition in Trophoblast: a Key Role in Normal and Pathological Pregnancies”

Nicholas P. Illsley, D.Phil

Senior Scientist
Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology
Hackensack University Medical Center
Adjunct Professor of Pharmacology, Physiology and Neuroscience
Rutgers-New Jersey Medical School

Dr. Illsley moved to Hackensack University Medical Center in 2012, following positions at the U.K. Medical Research Council’s Clinical Research Centre in London, the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at the University of California San Francisco and the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women’s Health at UMDNJ-New Jersey Medical School. His research focuses on the human placenta, its mechanisms of maternal to fetal transport, metabolism and role in the regulation of fetal growth. He has studied diabetic pregnancy, fetal growth restriction, preeclampsia and pregnancies subject to chronic hypoxia. He has published more than 80 articles in scientific journals on these topics. He has been awarded multiple research grants, primarily from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), with continuous funding since 1988. Dr. Illsley has been instrumental in developing and promoting the NIH Human Placenta Project, a 10-year effort to devise real-time methods for examining placental function.

Dr. Illsley is a leader in his field, helping to found both the Placenta Association of the Americas for which he served as the first President (2001-2011) and the International Federation of Placenta Associations for which he is completing a five-year term as President. He has served on several journal editorial boards and on the Council of the Society for Gynecologic Investigation and Perinatal Research Society. He was a charter member of the NIH Human Embryology and Development Study Section and continues to serve on multiple NIH study sections, reviewing research in perinatal medicine. Dr. Illsley has now put this experience and expertise to use in a new role, leading investigations for the Center for Abnormal Placentation. In collaboration with Dr. Zamudio and Dr. Al-Khan, he is developing new research to investigate the molecular biology that underlies placental invasion into the uterus in both normal and abnormal pregnancies. He is particularly interested in abnormally invasive placenta (placenta accreta) and preeclampsia.

Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology – Maternal Fetal Medicine
Faculty, Molecular and Cellular Biology
Clinical Research Director, Maternal Fetal Tissue Bank
Co-Director, OB/GYN Residency Research
Carver College of Medicine

Dr. Santillan’s Research

The Santillan lab is particularly interested in the relationship between maternal health during pregnancy and the short and long-term health effects to the mother and child. Specifically, our current work focuses on the early mechanisms involved in the development of preeclampsia, including immunological and vascular function changes during pregnancy. A central focus in the lab is investigating the predictive, preventative, therapeutic and curative potential of the arginine vasopressin pathway in preeclampsia. Leveraging the group’s novel discovery of a very early biomarker for preeclampsia and a novel mouse model for preeclampsia, our lab works to investigate the mechanistic underpinnings of the predictive and therapeutic potential of vasopressin in the management of preeclampsia in a translational manner. As a practicing academic high-risk obstetrician, Dr. Santillan is very qualified in caring for women with high risk pregnancies, in understanding their clinical management, and in conducting clinical/translational research in perinatal biology. He has been successful in conducting studies in both murine and human pregnancies. As the clinical research director and co-founder of the Maternal Fetal Tissue Bank, Dr. Santillan has significant experience in clinical data acquisition, management, and analysis as well as molecular biology techniques needed for translational studies. Furthermore, as the Principal Investigator of the Population project of the University of Iowa American Heart Association Strategically Focused Research Network in Hypertension, Dr. Santillan has developed the PREDICTV network of prenatal providers around the state of Iowa to collect samples and clinical information from a diverse cohort of pregnant women.
