CANCELLED - BMG Guest Seminar Speaker: Michelle Longworth, PhDBMG Guest Seminar Speaker: Michelle Longworth, PhD

Chicago - 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics presents: Michelle Longworth, PhD Principal Investigator, Associate Professor Cleveland Clinic, Lerner Research College of Medicine Title: Surprising New Roles for Genome Organizing Proteins OUTSIDE of the Nucleus Abstract: Condensin complexes are known for their essential functions in organizing the genome throughout the cell cycle, however, their extra-nuclear functions remain elusive. Our lab has now identified several, novel roles for extra-nuclear Condensins, including the repression of LINE-1 retrotransposition and regulation of mitochondrial activities. These new roles have important implications for immune signaling and cellular metabolism, and may contribute to the ability of Condensins to prevent genome instability in cancers.

CANCELLED - BMG Guest Seminar Speaker: Andrew Emili, PhD BMG Guest Seminar Speaker: Andrew Emili, PhD

Chicago - 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics presents: Andrew Emili, PhD Founding Director, Center for Network Systems Biology Professor, Departments of Biology and Biochemistry Boston University (School of Medicine) Title: "Exploring the Landscape of Protein Macromolecular Interaction Networks in Health and Disease" Abstract: Cellular processes depend on a myriad of dynamic physical associations between proteins. Despite progress in model systems, knowledge of the macromolecular networks in human cells and tissues remains incomplete and few large-scale experimental studies in native patho/physiological contexts have been reported to date. To close this important gap, my group is developing and applying systematic global approaches to isolate, identify and characterize macromolecular assemblies relevant to human health and disease.  The comprehensiveness, centrality and modularity of these probabilistic interaction maps, which encompass core biological systems and specialized adaptations, facilitates mechanistic understanding of the fundamental molecular basis of human pathobiology.
