RVZ Guest Speaker: Prof. Luke Chao
"Molecular mechanism for mitochondrial inner-membrane fusion by Opa1"
|Date:||11/22/2019, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM|
|Location:||Medizin, Geb. D15, 00.048|
|Speaker:||Prof. Luke Chao|
Prof. Luke Chao from the Harvard University will be our guest at the RVZ.
"The Chao lab is interested in how macromolecular assemblies propagate and maintain cellular ultrastructure. He seeks to describe how protein assemblies integrate cues to trigger different cellular outcomes, such as during the biogenesis and homeostasis of organelles. He uses an array of biochemical and biophysical reconstitution approaches to describe the activity of these assemblies and visualization approaches to describe their structures with molecular detail in native contexts. The long term goal of the lab is to reconstitute complex disease phenotype from molecular rules and reveal new strategies for therapeutic intervention."

Invited by Dr. Sonja Lorenz.
