Demystifying the Mitochondria
Guest Name and Bio: Dr. David Geary Dr. David C. Geary is a Curators’ Distinguished Professor in the Department of Psychological Sciences and the Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Program. His work spans a broad range of topics from children’s mathematical cognition and development to the evolution of sex differences. He’s written four sole authored books, Children’s Mathematical Development (1994), Male, Female (1998, 3nd edition release August, 2020), Origin of Mind (2005), and Evolution of Vulnerability (2015), one co-authored book, Sex Differences (2008), and co-edited a five-volume series on Mathematical Cognition and Learning. In addition, he has published about 325 journal articles and chapters and has had extensive funding from the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation for his empirical research. He served on the President’s National Mathematics Advisory Panel from 2006 to 2008 and chaired the learning processes task group, and was appointed by President G. W. Bush to the National Board of Advisors for the Institute of Educational Sciences, U.S. Department of Education (2007 to 2010). His current sex differences work is focused on sex-specific deficits associated with chronic exposure to stressors, using Darwin’s sexual selection and the evolution of condition-dependent traits. These traits, such as the peacock’s tail, have been exaggerated over evolutionary time based on competition for mates and mate choices. Condition-dependence means that they are the first to deteriorate when exposed to stressors, such as poor nutrition, chronic disease, and toxins. At the most fundamental level, condition-dependent expression of these traits might be dependent on the efficiency of mitochondrial energy production.

Unlocking The Secrets of NAD+ in COVID-19
Guest Name and Bio: Dr. Charles Brenner Dr. Charles Brenner is the Roy J. Carver Chair and Head of Biochemistry at the University of Iowa, as well as a founding co-director of the University of Iowa Obesity Initiative. In 2004, Brenner, then a faculty member at Dartmouth College, discovered nicotinamide riboside (NR) to be a vital precursor of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), which is made available by nicotinamide riboside kinases (Nrks) that are conserved between yeast and humans. In 2007, Dr. Brenner’s lab discovered a second pathway by which NR is converted to NAD+ and showed that NR can extend the lifespan of yeast cells by virtue of elevating NAD+ levels and increasing the activity of the NAD+-dependent Sir2 enzyme. In the past decade, Dr. Brenner has made multiple seminal contributions to NAD+ metabolism, which include engineering a yeast strain to convert inexpensive NAD+ precursor vitamins into NR, solving the crystal structure of human Nrk1, developing the methods for quantitative NAD+ metabolomics, and demonstrating the activity of oral NR in animal models of fatty liver disease; obesity; type 2 diabetes; diabetic and chemotherapeutic neuropathy; heart failure; and central brain injury. Dr. Brenner also led the first clinical trial of NR, which established safe oral availability in humans. He is currently focusing on the maternal and neonatal effects of oral NR and translating animal discoveries into evidence-based safe, human clinical practice for human conditions of metabolic stress. What you will learn from this episode: 1) What is the difference between NR (nicotinamide ribosise) and NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) 2) What role does NAD+ have in aging and metabolic dysfunction 3) How could NAD+ potentially help in the setting of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) 4) What is the best way to increase your levels of NAD+ 5) How can NAD+ help with fatty liver and obesity How to learn more about our guest: Twitter: CharlesMBrenner https://brenner.lab.uiowa.edu/ https://twitter.com/charlesmbrenner Please enjoy, share, rate and review our podcast and help us bring the message about precision health care to the world!
