Come sign out a copy of the book in Room 309 Gregory Hall and join us for the discussion, sponsored by the Center for Historical Interpretation (CHI).
Lab Interests: Liver injury and repair: To learn more about the mechanisms that regulate this process, we study cultured cells, animal models of acute and chronic liver damage and samples from patients with various types of liver disease. Our group also conducts clinical trials in patients with chronic liver disease. We are particularly interested in fatty liver disease
This is a workshop on teaching 400- level courses for TAs and faculty. Details to follow.
Advisor: Prof. Wilfred van der Donk
Dr. Carpenter is senior director of the Imaging Platform at Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, where she is also an institute scientist. With a strong background in cell biology, microscopy, and computational biology, her expertise is in developing and applying methods for extracting quantitative information from biological images, especially in a high-throughput manner.
Research Interests: Epilepsy; autism; neurodevelopmental disease
Jakobsson's Beckman Institute research areas include: Computer-aided design of components for nanodevices, structure of biological membranes, structure-function relationships in biological and synthetic ion channels, computer-aided drug research, comparative genomics of microbes, use of technology to introduce quantitative approaches to biology education.
Dr. Walz is interested in processes that involve biological membranes, ranging from vesicular transport that distributes cargo molecules throughout the cell to the effects of lipids on the structure and function of membrane proteins.
What they do How do neurons in neocortex work in concert to encode the natural world, construct a representation of its behaviorally relevant content, and coordinate behavior based on those representations? This is a complex problem that we are addressing in multiple ways, with an interdisciplinary and comparative approach.
Research Interest: The liver is a vital organ with a wide range of functions, including detoxification of various metabolites, protein synthesis, synthesis of bile acids, and, broadly, regulation of metabolism. Our laboratory's goal is to understand how these processes are regulated within the liver.
