UC Berkeley Bioscience Meeting: Molecular Neuroscience

Meeting: Seminars of interest | July 20 | 9 a.m.-5 p.m. |  Stanley Hall

 QB3 - California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences

The Bay Area Molecular Neuroscience Meeting (BAMNM) will provide neuroscientists across sub-fields with a greater sense of community, to communicate our findings locally, share technical expertise, and foster collaborations. BAMNM includes a range of molecular neuroscientists: from molecular geneticists to structural biologists — anyone who studies neuroscience at the molecular level.

Science Lecture - Us and our microbiotas: mainly a gut reaction

Lecture: Seminars of interest | July 21 | 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | 100 Genetics & Plant Biology Building

 Dr. Michael Shapira, Department of Integrative Biology


We have more bacteria in our gut than cells in our entire body. This little piece of information, realized in the past decade or so, has directed a spotlight on the gut microbiota, as scientists scramble to understand what this means for our existence: What is it important for? Can we take advantage of it to treat pathology? And what can we learn about all this from worms?

UC Berkeley Bioscience Meeting: Biophysics of Nuclear Organization and Function

Meeting: Seminars of interest | July 24 | 9 a.m.-6 p.m. |  Stanley Hall

 QB3 - California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences

Understanding the biophysical properties of the nucleus and their functional implications is an exciting emerging field, the advancement of which is highly dependent on cross-disciplinary research and collaboration. This symposium brings together the Bay Area’s world-leading experts in biophysics, high-resolution imaging, computational modeling, and chromatin biology, in order to foster...   More >
