QBI - Seminar




11:00 AM-12:00 PM

The QBI Seminar Series is presenting a PCMI seminar with Stephen Michnick, Ph.D. Dr. Michnick is a professor and the Canada Research Chair in Cell Architecture in the Department of Biochemistry, University of Montreal. The Michnick lab studies physical principles governing the organization and properties of macromolecular assemblies in living cells. They use a variety of techniques to study the spatiotemporal dynamics and topologies of protein complexes, on different time and space scales, either focused on specific problems in signal transduction or for whole proteome interaction network analyses. A current focus of the Michnick lab is on how active changes in properties and phase separation of biopolymers may underlie the mechanics of membrane vesicle generation and chromatin organization.

Talk title: "A Protein Condensate Drives Actin-Independent Endocytosis"

Host: Jeremy Willsey
