Departmental Seminars

The Molecular Biology Department’s seminar program is one of the very best on campus. We make a strong effort to bring in visiting scientists who can provide a entertaining, enlightening, and current research report on an important area of molecular biology. Shown below is a listing of the current semester’s seminar speakers. Note that departmental seminars during Spring 2011 semester will start at 2:10 pm. in room 103 of the Animal Science/Molecular Biology building.

Our lab has a long-standing interest in the means by which the cytoskeleton controls cell division, wound healing, and endocytosis. We have developed several model systems that help simplify analysis of complex, cytoskeleton-dependent processes; these are described in our recent publications.” Gatlin
