"Decoding the Secret Lives of Proteins" Bryan Ballif Full Professor Lecture

Apr 17, 2019
4:30 pm to 6:00 pm
Waterman Bldg 338 (Memorial Lounge)

Cells and tissues harbor exquisite molecular machinery built of thousands of evolved proteins and other biomolecules working intimately and fluidly together. These machines are regulated to drive functional outcomes such as growth and differentiation during development, to the daily processing of food energy, to the regeneration of tissue during healing, to the devastating effects that are manifest in disease. The research of Dr. Ballif and his students teases apart and decodes the inner workings of these protein machines toward an understanding of how they function to orchestrate developmental, homeostatic and aberrant biology.
