With the advent of single cell analyses, many unanticipated cell biological phenomena have been discovered including new classes of RNA, identification of RNA targeting sequences, and perhaps most surprisingly the discovery of cell-to-cell biological variation in transcriptome abundances even in presumptively identical cells.

This has led to the hypothesis that there is a many-to-one...   More >



Designing 15 nm Long-circulating 3-Helix Micelles (3HM) as Viable Nanocarriers: Nano Seminar Series

Colloquium | April 25 | 4:15-5 p.m. | #1 LeConte Hall | Note change in location


Rama Ranganathan, M.D., Ph.D., UT Southwestern

Department of Chemistry


Natural proteins can fold spontaneously into well-defined three-dimensional structures, can carry out complex biochemical properties such as signal transmission, efficient catalysis of chemical reactions, specificity in molecular recognition, and allosteric conformational change. All of this is achieved while also preserving the capacity for rapid adaptive variation in response to fluctuating...   More >

Stephanie Beyer, Visiting Scholar at the Center for Studies in Higher Education, Center For Studies in Higher Education

Center For Studies in Higher Education, Social Science Matrix, UC Berkeley


Stephanie Beyer’s talk will focus on her dissertation centered on “Homo-Prestigious? University Status and the Academic Career”. Rankings have a long tradition in the US higher education system that has been described as a caste system in which faculty is recruited from the most elite universities. Prestigious divisions do not only shape the institution itself but also the visions of academics....   More >

Tamir Gonen, Ph.D., MRSNZ

Department of Chemistry


My laboratory studies the structures of membrane proteins that are important in maintaining homeostasis in the brain. Understanding structure (and hence function) requires scientists to build an atomic resolution map of every atom in the protein of interest, that is, an atomic structural model of the protein of interest captured in various functional states. In 2013 we unveiled the method...   More >
