  • ​May 4th: Luis Serrano (CRG Barcelona) - "Is it possible to computer model a cell?"​


  • June 1st: Peter Lénárt (EMBL Heidelberg) - "The same, only different: how does the cytoskeleton adapt to meiosis-specific functions?"


  • June 22nd: Joe Howard (Yale University) - "Microtubles, motors and morphogensis"

    The Howard lab is fascinated by the question of how small molecules like proteins, lipids and nucleotides self-assemble into cells and tissues that are thousands to millions of times larger than molecular dimensions. How do the molecules know where they are, and whether the structures that they have made are the right size and shape? We are approaching these questions in the context of the microtubule cytoskeleton, that underlies the morphology of the mitotic spindle, cilia and flagella and the neuronal cytoskeleton. Using high-resolution and single-molecule techniques, we trying to trying to understand the interaction rules that allow molecules to work together to form highly organized yet dynamic cellular structures.


  • Sept. 7th: Johan Elf (Uppsala University) - "Probing intracellular kinetics at single molecule sensitivity"


  • Oct 12th: Rob Phillips (Caltech) - "Transcription by the Numbers"
