NVBMB Lecture: Dynamics of endocytosis

Wanneer:ma 19-10-2015 16:00 - 17:00
Waar:Lectureroom 5161.0105, Bernoulliborg, Nijenborgh 9, Groningen

Hosted by Prof. Arnold Driessen (a.j.m.driessen@rug.nl) of the Groningen Biomolecular Sciences and Biotechnology Institute

As of 1980, the Netherlands Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (NVBMB) invites a high profile speaker in biochemistry. The list of previous invitees includes many subsequent Nobel Prize winners.      

                               

Speaker of the year 2015: Thomas Kirchhausen

Prof. Thomas Kirchhausen is professor of cell biology and pediatrics at Harvard Medical School (Boston, USA). His research focuses on the processes that mediate and regulate the movement of membrane proteins throughout cells. In particular, the molecular mechanisms that underlie the cell's sorting machineries responsible for receptor-mediated endocytosis and for secretion, how they are high jacked by toxins, viruses and bacterial pathogens to enter cells, and how during cell division, cells control their size and organelle architecture.
