Distinguished Lectures in Biomolecular Condensates

Thursday, April 11 | 3:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Uncas A. Whitaker Hall, Room 100
6760 Forest Park Pkwy, St. Louis, MO 63105, USA

Please join us for the Distinguished Lectures on Biomolecular Condensates Series sponsored by the Center for Biomolecular Condensates in the McKelvey School of Engineering.

The distinguished speaker will be Dr. Ashutosh Chilkoti, the Alan Kaganov Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University. The title of Dr. Chilkoti's talk will be Biomolecular Condensates from Synthetic Intrinsically Disordered Proteins: Tools for Biotechnology and Synthetic Biology. 

Dr. Chikoti's lecture will be part of a mini symposium that will feature two 25-minute talks by members of the Center for Biomolecular Condensates. The first talk, between 3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., will be given by Dr. Dmitri Nusinow, Associate Member and PI in the Donald Danforth Plant Sciences Center. His talk will be entitled: The role of disorder in the assembly of photoreceptor condensates in plants.  

The second talk, between 3:35 p.m. and 4:05 p.m. will be given by Dr. Min Kyung Shinn, Postdoc in Biomedical Engineering. Her talk will be entitled: Nuclear speckle proteins form intrinsic and RNA-dependent microphases.

There will be a reception following the mini symposium and lecture by Dr. Young.
