James G Hecker
Assistant Professor
Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine
Harborview Medical Center
University of Washington
Short biography

Dr. James G. Hecker took his PhD degree in Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Washington, followed by a faculty position at the University of Virginia in Chemical Engineering. He was awarded a 2 year Research Fellowship at Penn following residency, concentrating in molecular biology. His work in delivery to the rat brain began over 18 years ago, and Dr. Hecker has now demonstrated widespread distribution, uptake, and expression with luciferase, GFP, -galactosidase, and HSP70. These methods and materials were also used to deliver luciferase expressing DNA and mRNA to rat brain for intact animal in-vivo imaging of the extended time course of expression, and after cisterna magna delivery in the mouse. Rhesus macaques infused with the GFP vector were followed for time periods of 24 hours up to 6 months. Results from these experiments demonstrate very high DNA copy numbers within the CNS of the primate, with very little escape of the vector outside of the CNS. These experiments provide experimental evidence to support these methods and vectors for pre-operative transient gene expression of neuroprotective sequences, such as HSP70, and also provide the rationale for their use immediately after stroke, or after traumatic brain or spinal cord injury. Biodistribution, toxicity, and multiplex analysis of cytokine responses in serum and CSF from these experiments point to the efficacy, safety, and lack of immune response from these techniques, which should also be of extraordinary interest to pharmaceutical firms looking to deliver and express gene sequences or siRNA to the CNS.
